Description

This is a rare opportunity to own a true Chicago Greystone in Chicago's hottest neighborhood. It's love at first sight with the phenomenal curb appeal and beautifully crafted ornamentation on the facade. The current owners have done extensive renovations and meticulously maintained this home during their ownership. It is the first time this property has been on the market in 21 years. The interior retains the original charm and character with details such as stained glass skylights and transom windows, high ceilings, detailed moldings, front and back dual staircases as well as beautiful hardwood flooring throughout. The chefs kitchen has a granite breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, massive pantry and a Viking Professional stove. The kitchen flows seamlessly into the dining room with adjacent powder room. The cozy living room and sitting area are framed by the East facing bay window at the front of the property. On the second floor, you will find three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, a comfortable sitting area and stackable laundry. The first bedroom features a charming fireplace and custom built-in cherry bookcases and en-suite bath connected to the second bedroom. The third bedroom has a floor to ceiling window with backyard and sunset views. On the top floor, it just keeps getting better showcasing the primary bedroom suite complete with massive spa like bath featuring a whirlpool tub, separate shower and huge dual vanity. The top floor also has an office space leading to the secluded and serene west-facing rooftop deck. Taking the steps up to the upper roof offers panoramic views including downtown skyline and West for sunset. The next owner could see potential for adding even more outdoor space. The lower level of the home is currently a fully equipped Airbnb property with low maintenance tile flooring, two bedrooms, one bathroom w tub/ shower, stackable laundry, granite/stainless kitchen and an exposed brick and limestone wall that reveals the original construction. The lower level also has separate entrances at the front and back so it makes an ideal income property. This home would not be complete without the mature landscaped backyard and stone patio. It is your own urban oasis in the middle of the city. A portion of the backyard could also be converted to private parking if needed, but there is abundant permit street parking right out front in the neighborhood. This is a phenomenal location in West Loop nestled in with historic boulevard homes, directly across from Whitney Young high school and walking distance to Skinner school/ Skinner Park, United Center for concerts and games. For the foodie, you are just around the corner from Chicago's hottest restaurants on Randolph St and in Fulton Market District. Transportation is a breeze with easy access to I-290, CTA Jackson bus, Racine blue line, Lake St green line/pink line and the newly installed bike lanes on Jackson. Call today to schedule your private tour!
