Property Description

There's nothing like it on the market. It has charm and character. Original woodwork, hardwood floors, and 10' ceilings on both floors. It's contemporary yet comfortable and cozy, and the layout is terrific. From the entry you can see right through to the beautiful, large deck and private (luscious) garden off the eat-in kitchen. The rooms are intimate and open at the same time. Vintage pocket doors between the living and dining rooms can be closed to provide space for different activities. The first floor has a handsome bar area with its own sink and refrigerator. A discreetly placed half-bath is opposite the bar and the small, quiet office is adjacent to the dining room. The second floor has 3 good-size bedrooms with one bathroom off the spacious hallway and one in the primary bedroom suite. Floor-to-ceiling windows open onto an intimate balcony looking through the trees into the landscaped yard. It's quiet and peaceful on one of the loveliest, tree-lined streets in Wicker Park. Each floor has 1200 SF. There is a partially finished lower level as well as tons of storage, and a large laundry and workshop area. See the video tour, and visit this striking property in person.
