Property Description

Old Irving Park Opportunity on a 50' x 144' Lot! The W. D. Smyser House, designed in 1902 by "The Dean of Chicago Architects", Elmer C. Jensen is being made available by the family that has owned it for 63 years! After completing this home, Elmer Jensen designed and built his own home across the street at 4041 N. Lowell. Washington D. Smyser was a long time CPS educator, the Principal of Portage Park School, and is the namesake of Smyser Elementary School located at 4310 N. Melvina in Chicago. Much of the rich elegance of this home remains as Jensen designed - pillars on the front porch, gorgeous hardwood floors, incredible oak millwork, and two woodburning fireplaces! The huge living and dining rooms are completely open to one another, creating a 30' x 16' great room! The floorplan can be flexible, as there is a large breakfast room transitioning between the dining room and the kitchen. The library/office would be ideal for a work from home arrangement, as it has a powder room within. The incredible oak staircase leads to four bedrooms on the second floor including a huge primary bedroom which has room to build out an en-suite bath if so desired. The primary bath on the second floor has the high quality, old world ceramic tile, and the newer basement bath features the whirlpool tub and separate shower. The unfinished portion of the basement is awaiting your ideas. You will love the options for getting fresh air and entertaining outdoors here! First, there is a 22' x 8' front porch facing east - ideal for morning coffee! A spacious screened porch/sunroom, is accessible from the dining area and it opens to the upper flagstone patio on the rear of the home. This patio is also accessible from the breakfast room. The upper patio transitions to a lower flagstone patio, which in turn flows to the expansive rear yard and gardens. The opportunities for summer BBQs, cocktail parties or old-fashioned birthday parties with water balloon tosses are endless! What would your plans be? Ideal location - right in the center of Old Irving Park and just a few blocks to the CTA Blue Line and the Metra. Easy access on/off the Kennedy Expressway too. Just a few minutes to Eris Brewery & Cider House, Old Irving Brewery, Smoque BBQ, and Hot Woks, Cool Sushi as well as coffee shops, other restaurants, grocery shopping, CVS/Walgreens, etc. Old Irving Park residents love their neighborhood! Come take a look at this elegant home, and imagine the possibilities for you!
