Property Description

Stately greystone on huge 50 x 180 lot! Only 2 owners in 50 years. Currently owned by long time Chicago architect who has loving restored the home maintaining much of it's original virtue. The home features a sprawling open floor plan full of character at every turn. Patterned mahogany wainscoting wrap 3 stunning levels of stairs, intricate ornamental plaster celing inlays, turret rooms, 7 fireplaces, and a turn of the century entry & foyer that will transport you to the golden age of the Chicago greystone. What a beautiful home! Main level features large updated kitchen adjacent to dining room and just at the rear of the home so perfect for outdoor entertaining. An open parlor connects the dining room to the enormous living room and eventually to the formal entry. The second floor features a large primary suite complete with turret room, enormous walk in closet, and separate water closet/shower & makeup station/sink. Two additional bedrooms with large walk-in closets, a full hall bath, and gracious open space atop the stairs complete the floor. The third floor contains a large open recreation room with lake views! Also additional bedroom and multiple storage/walk-in closets that would make for ideal work from home space. Lower level is partially finished with large open room, kitchenette, potential bedroom, and storage abound. Substantial work has been done to the home over the past 10 years including but not limited to... entirely new roof including structural elements; newer electrical & plumbing; various windows replaced or repaired; new sewer and water supplies; addition of zoned HVAC systems & new hot water heater; refinished wood, doors, and trim; various tuck pointing & chimney work; and the list goes on. Massive 20 x 40 garage with an open lofted room above. Parcel has two PIN#'s - one for the home (23 x 180) and one for vacant lot (27 x 180). So many options...keep as huge side yard, sell off side lot to reduce principle, develop the lot, add to home, build a new garage on side lot and take advantage of huge existing garage & loft for coach house/ADU. The possibilities are endless! Above grade square footage estimated at 3300sf but total square footage is over 5000sf including basement & garage loft. Superb Bronzeville/Oakland location with new construction in every direction. Close to IIT, UIC, University of Chicago, lake front & trail, 15 minutes to the loop, 8 minutes to Hyde Park, and close to so much more. A rare find in a city of extraordinary homes!
