Property Description

Rarely available, historic single family greystone in an A++ Lincoln Park location! This elegant home still has many of those coveted, original features from the late 1800's rarely found combined with modern and unique design elements making this a property not to miss! The antithesis of "cookie-cutter" this timeless home features an architecturally distinctive colonnade running the length of the main level, 2 large skylights fill the home with an abundance of natural light and a loft/den on the 2nd level has original built-in cabinetry and is perfect as an additional TV/entertaining area or as a library for a quiet escape! Winter evenings become cozier with the 3 original fireplaces (living room, dining room and primary bedroom) and for those musicians/music lovers, a grand piano fits beautifully on the main level under the skylight between the formal living and dining room. The home has 6 bedrooms (4 up) and 2 smaller in the lower level along with a full, private 1 bedroom, 1 bath suite w/ separate entrance and full kitchen - ideal as a Nanny's quarters, in-law suite and/or tenants for additional income! Should your buyers wish, they could even Air BnB the suite! The garage roof deck features pergola, trellis and self irrigated planters - ready for that buyer craving to design their perfect outdoor oasis! Additional features: 3 zoned HVAC, replaced within the last year, 2 x 75 gallon water tanks, private balcony off primary bathroom suite, original windows in the front of the home (to maintain the historic requirement for the block) and traditional front porch entry for additional security. Ideally situated in Lincoln Park, across from Alcott Elementary and steps to public transportation, boutiques, restaurants, nightlife, Lincoln Park & Lake Michigan.
