Details: This Chicago Heights Country Club neighborhood residence is known as “The Castle Home” among the locals. It’s one of the many custom-built vintage homes in the area, but there’s some recent updates like the remodeled eat-in kitchen. This home features a cozy living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a fully finished basement. An concrete patio off the southern exposed sunroom is great for outdoor entertaining—as is the massive yard.
