Introducing a truly one of a kind, luxury, 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom single family home in historic Old Town. The extra-wide loft-style floor plan creates an expansive open living space with 10-foot ceilings that flood the home with natural light. Enter the large foyer and up a flight of stairs to the newly renovated chef's kitchen, dining area, large living room, and bedroom (currently used as a home office). The Chef's kitchen is the heart of the home and it's been thoughtfully updated with brand-new cabinets and pristine white porcelain countertops with waterfall edge. It's a culinary enthusiast's dream with a Jenn-Air range with Dacor hood, Bosch dishwasher, 36" French door refrigerator, built-in microwave, 33" Kraus farmhouse sink with Moen pull-down faucet. It's perfect for both intimate dinners and entertaining on a grand scale with the large adjacent dining area. The wide-open living room is perfect for hosting guests or movie nights at home. A gorgeous floor-to-ceiling fireplace with extra-large 2'x4' tiles centers this entertaining space. Two unique features that add architectural flair and WOW factor to this residence are it's dramatic black iron open staircase and a 3-story center atrium complete with a flourishing mature tree, creating a connection to nature right in the heart of your home. On the upper level, the enormous primary suite is a sanctuary unto itself, featuring a walk-in closet, a full wall of additional closets, and a built-in dresser, all bathed in natural light from two exposures. The renovated primary bathroom is a haven of tranquility, complete with a new oversized shower with end-to-end shelf, bench and Kohler rain shower head, two sink vanity with black Kohler faucets, designer hexagonal tile, skylight, and a linen closet. The spacious second bedroom overlooks the atrium with a floor-to-ceiling sliding door to a small iron balcony. A large center flex space is currently used as a kid's play area. The recently renovated second bath with tub and shower, a laundry closet, and additional hall closet space completes this level. The crown jewel of this property is the 1, 200 square-foot rooftop deck, offering breathtaking skyline views of the city. It's an ideal space for hosting al fresco gatherings, relaxing in the sun, or enjoying evening sunsets over the cityscape. The lower level, just five steps below, offers versatile and flexible living space, 9-foot ceilings, and includes an additional bedroom, a full bathroom, and an enormous living area. With its own private entrance, this area is perfect for guests, in-laws, or a nanny, providing a sense of autonomy and privacy. Alternatively, this space offers the opportunity for an Airbnb with a completely separate entrance. Countless options for living in this versatile home in a much sought after location. Bonuses include low taxes, no HOA, and private parking in the attached 1+ car garage with plenty of additional storage space and two separate entrances. Just steps to buzzing Wells St with The Second City, Zanies and popular restaurants/bars like The Vig, Old Town Pour House and Topo Gigio. Starbucks, Philz, Doms Market, Jewel and FoxTrot Market to name a few. Commuter's dream with easy access to the CTA's Brown and Red lines. Nearby attractions such as the Lincoln Park Zoo and the beautiful lakefront make this location truly unparalleled.
