Welcome home to this warm and inviting 3-bedroom 1-bathroom single family brick home, nestled on a gorgeous tree-lined street in the heart of Avondale. Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by a "little free library" on the parkway and a beautifully landscaped front yard with two robust cherry trees, setting the stage for the charming ambience that lies within. The main level of the home features a picturesque living room, a full bathroom with luxurious heated floors and an on-demand water recirculation pump, two bedrooms, and a fully updated kitchen with separate adjacent dining area. The kitchen is the star of the home, featuring beautiful custom shaker cabinets with built-in organizers, lazy susan, and spice rack, recycled glass countertops, and high-end energy efficient appliances including a Sun Frost refrigerator and a sleek induction stovetop. The lower level offers an oversized third bedroom with a murphy bed, perfect for a combo guest room/office space, a huge workshop that could easily be repurposed to a fourth bedroom or additional living space, and a laundry room with tons of extra storage. Additional sustainable improvements include a tankless water heater, Energy Star rated doors and double-pane windows, solar light tubes, custom built-ins made with repurposed wood, and newer insulation and copper piping throughout. The extensive backyard boasts a sprawling lawn, large patio with a garden bed, playground/fort, compost bin, and ample space for gardening, entertaining, or simply soaking up the sun. Whether it's a summer BBQ or a serene morning coffee, this outdoor haven is a retreat for adults and children alike! Great neighborhood convenient to transit (90/94 & the blue line) and all of the fantastic local eateries, cafes, boutiques, parks and entertainment that Avondale and neighboring Logan Square have to offer!
