Behind 3839’s flamboyant Gothic entry, two-story bays and soaring gable the interior of this 120 year old, landmark home is a seamless blend of original detail and 21st century convenience. Plus, there’s exceptional storage and a fully furnished 600 sf roof terrace! The home’s double door entry foyer has the 5 original feathered glass windows and opens to the honey-colored oak staircase. Hardwood floors, two fireplaces, the original sideboard, 10″ baseboards and finely detailed crown moldings adorn the living and dining rooms. A 2-story rear addition adds space and floods the rooms with morning light. The kitchen’s custom cabinetry mirrors the egg and dart molding of the tin ceiling, and 8 leaded glass windows from the original Ann Sathers restaurant create a wall of color in the walk-in pantry and adjacent sitting room. A beautiful period-appropriate powder room has been added to the first floor. Three bedrooms on second floor, including master with a beautifully outfitted walk-in closet. Finished lower level has 7.5′ ceilings, family room, office, full bath (with an original 1903 sink), lux laundry room with cabinetry and beverage center PLUS a 22′ storage room with built-ins. Access to the serene roof terrace is via an inside staircase. Transferrable leased parking directly behind home. Additional free parking available in Cubs’ lot for AVT residents. The 40 London-style rowhomes of Alta Vista Terrace are among Chicago’s most beloved and architecturally distinctive landmarks.
