Property Description

Renowned artist Wassily Kandinsky once said "Colour is a means of exerting direct influence on the soul." Remarkably bold and unique, this vibrant and playful home is located in Chicago's first residential landmark district: Alta Vista Terrace. Renovated down to the studs over 1 years time, this artfully dreamt home is filled with spectacular & joyful details throughout. Hand painted wall & ceiling murals; artisan crafted hand pieced mosaics; jewel-tone art glass - new and antique; a 250-yr old Moroccan balcony; custom iron banisters and rails; hand crafted vintage clarinet wall sconce & so much more. Entertaining guests or relaxing at home, the open main level showcases handsome hardwood floors, elegant crown moldings/tall base moldings, ornate fireplace mantel (is original to the home), spectacular kitchen with arched cloud ceiling and La Cornue range. Primary lofted bedroom suite with stylish carpets and private en suite bath through the morocan inspired doorway where you'll enjoy an amazing dual head shower with custom ceiling mounted copper rainfall shower fixture, separate soaking tub and gorgeous custom leaded glass features. Finished lower level with additional family room space, second full bath, second bedroom and laundry nook. Desirable enclosed rear patio overlooks beautiful Kelly Park. Quick walk to Wrigley Field and the Red Line. A perfect retreat at days end or the perfect investment as a year round tourist rental for those seeking a truly unique Chicago experience - this home fits the bill. Many major mechanical/high costs items have been addressed through the rehab including installation of new roof, new HVAC, new front windows custom crafted to meet historic preservation requirements. An extensive list of updates and additional information is available within the MLS under additional information or by request from the listing agent.

Be sure to check out the 5 virtually "renovated" images that show how the space could look with a different wall color scheme. Welcome Home! FABULOUS AIRBNB INVESTMENT PROPERTY! ONE OF A KIND!!
