One-of-a-kind enlarged and renovated brick cottage in prime Lincoln Park/DePaul location! Much larger than expected with exceptional quality throughout, this thoughtfully designer-designed home seamlessly combines original charm with the perfect blend of modern touches! Immediately upon entering, the volume of the house becomes apparent with generously sized living and dining rooms and a view all the way through the open floorplan. A centrally located and updated kitchen offers top of the line appliances, eat in space, plus a built-in desk for command central or at home studies. A large addition to the home enables a huge greatroom plus a very big mud room, or use this versatile room for exercise or additional office space. A staircase befitting of a grand home escalates to the light-filled second floor where a gracious landing leads to two good sized secondary bedrooms with excellent closet space, an updated bath and laundry. A fantastic owner's suite with a huge, luxurious bathroom, spectacular custom closets, a fireplace and a private balcony make this home a true gem. There is also an integrated sound system with speakers in nearly every room - perfect for entertaining! The house has been designed to feel like a vacation cottage in the middle of the city, with wonderful outdoor space and a 2 car garage. Walk to Oscar Mayer, parks, restaurants and more!
