Absolutely stunning brick Rowhome home begs to be owned by a Chicagoan who loves vintage details with modern amenities.
It’s a dream to live on the friendliest block in Chicago—the kind of street where you can enjoy story time on the neighbor’s front porch, borrow a cup of sugar and partake in cocktails and ice cream socials with the neighbors. The annual block party has decades of history and the sense of community is strong. This incredible Roscoe Village location is convenient to the CTA Brown Line and walking distance to Roscoe, Southport, North Center and Lincoln Avenue restaurants and shops. Educational prospects couldn’t be better with CPS’s Hamilton Elementary and St. Andrew’s Catholic Schools, both Blue Ribbon award-winning institutions, just three blocks away.
Built before the Chicago World’s Fair, this home has been lovingly owned and is now ready for a future generation to take it to the next level. Enter through a vintage vestibule—the mudroom of the late 1800’s—and appreciate the grandeur of the original oak staircase. Additional original details are found in the living room fireplace, cove ceilings and hardwood floors. The sunny kitchen would be a beautiful remodel, overlooking an entertainer’s backyard. One powder bath is conveniently located on the main floor + several closets and pantries allow for plenty of storage.
The second floor features a very large front bedroom, sizable second bedroom, and a third bedroom that could easily be used as an office, nursery or guest space. It also hosts a full bathroom ready for modern tile and updates. Cedar closets add a sense of luxury and care. The space is filled with sunlight from the custom copper skylight from above. The basement is ready to be converted into a fantastic family room, and even a guest suite. Enjoy a private back yard and garage. To imagine the possibilities, notice how neighbors have landscaped, installed patios and playgrounds + garage roof decks.
The possibilities are endless! Fee simple, no homeowner’s association or dues. It’s a pleasure to show and sell this wonderful home!
