Stunning Stone Bungalow in the Shawnee National Forest. This stunning stone bungalow is located in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest in sought-after Unity Point School District, just minutes from Carbondale.  Many recent upgrades to expand the lower level living space have preserved and enhanced this architecturally significant home, which was originally built in the 1920s as the clubhouse for one of southern Illinois’ first private country clubs. The massive great room has a 16’ ceiling with large windows and French doors throughout, along with a distinctive stone hearth, giving the home a warm and inviting feel. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, and the master bedroom includes a walk-in closet and ensuite half bathroom. There is a full bath on the main floor and a second full bath on the lower level, which includes a custom tiled shower and self-cleaning jetted whirlpool tub. A powder room half bath provides convenience to a main level bedroom.  The home also has a large screened porch that overlooks the forest, perfect for relaxing on a summer evening. Complete renovation of lower level and loft bedroom. This is a leasehold property. HVAC-2017 with transferable 10 yrs warranty parts and labor. Hot water heater 2021. Seamless gutters 2022. Call us now for your private tour!
