Stately 1891 Vintage Row House- Meticulously restored and updated to offer the modern-day updates you want, while maintaining the original, authentic craftsmanship and grandeur of an architecturally significant Chicago home. Attributed to William Le Baron Jenny, the father of the modern skyscraper, who also designed Garfield and Humboldt Parks and the Horticultural Building at the 1893 World’s Fair, this home is truly magnificent in a way that simply can’t be captured in photos! Its many original details include 8-ft pocket doors, original etched glass transoms featuring the 4 seasons, leaded glass windows, built-in China cabinets, 4 fireplaces, an absolutely gorgeous 3-story front staircase and original woodwork and floors throughout! This 3-story home sits on an OVERSIZED, EXTRA-WIDE 31 x 125 FT LOT and offers 4BR’s, 2.5BTH’s and 5-car parking (2-car garage parking and 3 exterior parking spots as well). It also has a wonderful floor plan. First floor has a beautiful open flow that is PERFECT FOR ENTERTAINING. Second floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths including a primary suite and a back staircase to the kitchen. 3rd floor has a 4TH bedroom with adjacent Den/Sitting Room with skylight that would also make a great work at home space. The lower level could very easily be finished out to add almost another 1,000 square feet of a family room and/or additional bedrooms and baths and currently has a spacious laundry room, great workshop room for your creative side and large storage area as well. Great natural light, high ceiling height and tons of storage everywhere, including a lofted storage area in the garage with pulldown stairs. The beautifully landscaped yard is fully fenced with landscape lighting, brick patio and deck off of kitchen. Other improvements include a Dual zone HVAC system with central air conditioning and updated 200-amp electric service. Nestled along the lakefront in beautiful Buena Park, just 3 blocks to the Redline Sheridan “L” stop, 5 blocks to Wrigley Entertainment District, 4 blocks from Waveland Park Tennis Courts, Golf Course and Picnic Area and easy access to Lake Shore Drive it doesn’t get better than this for location!
