About 3 Hilltop Ave

With a little TLC here and there, this unique 1-bedroom ranch home with a walk-out basement can be an excellent first-time home or serve as a great rental property. The enclosed front porch could easily be upgraded into a 2nd bedroom by adding a heating component. The home has been updated with new kitchen cabinets, and an all-new full-bath. The windows are nearly new, and the electrical and plumbing have been redone as well. The house has been freshly painted throughout. There are some really lovely ceiling fans in place. Additionally, the furnace and hot-water-heater are only 2 years new. These recent updates are some of the most important and expensive updates for a home, so anyone buying this home will have very few out of pocket expenses in order to have the home completely finished and ready for occupancy by either an owner or a tenant. The house has a very clean high and dry full walkout basement, there is driveway parking for several cars, and a spacious backyard with a ready-to-use firepit. The METRA train is within walking distance, and there is easy access to Rte 12 for shopping or to commute to work. This is a very unique property, in need of just the right buyer to make it into Home-Sweet-Home!
