"F*** compromises" - Amy Tan. Watch the video for a curated tour, walk the 3D floor plan from anywhere, and then bid fast because this home won't last long. Width beats length every time and on standard Chicago lots, this is a commonly made compromise. Here you get your cake and eat it too! Spaces like this are typically reserved for elevator buildings with door staff, $1,000+ HOA's, and snooty neighbors with hallways reminiscent of Chanel N5. Finding a double lot with a full floor unit is like being in Willy Wonka and palming that elusive, heard of but never seen golden ticket. Be the envy of all your dinner guests as your parties move from in, to outdoor on the whim of idle conversation. The light and dark kitchen contrasts modernity with refinement and will have all your friends asking, "Who's your designer?" "Chef's kitchen" is an overused real estate lexicon that's lost its way; this is an entertainer's space, a family abode, something to grow into and make your own. Quartz counters, Thermador appliances, and custom cabinets with high-end lighting - what else could you ask for? If my clients weren't relocating they would never let this go... Real oak floors (forget planks of unfinishable, unforgiving, easy for the installer, but hard for you floors) provide the flexibility to shift stains for vogue and make repairs on demand. As if the south-facing, perfect for morning coffee front composite deck spanning 30'x8' wasn't good enough, you have a 25'x10' northerly composite space in the rear perfect for sunset cocktails. The wired, blended sound reminds you of those big, dark rooms we used to recline and throw popcorn in. The speakers aren't installed, but the entire home is ready (as in every room) for you to say goodbye to your Sonos (but keep the stock) and graduate to sound theory. Equal closets like your dual sinks keep everyone happy. Remember soaking tubs in primary suites? They're on the extinction list and you don't have to visit The Silk Road to have this one. You don't give up the steamed, benched, party shower either; it's bigger than ever and waiting for bubbles to be rinsed from the rain, body, and hand showers perfect for the moment you both look at each other like it's Home Alone and say "my meeting starts in 20!". Step out onto heated floors or rush in after a cold day from your garage as your tootsies radiate up to your heart where this home will be everlasting. Grow into the home as the neighborhood grows around you and celebrate that prudent decision you made in two nought twenty-one when 2412 Lyndale hit the market and you were able to stop searching because you found your place in this world. | Walkscore 96 | TransitScore 71 | BikeScore 85 | Blueline: .4 mi.- Zip car .4 mi away | 18 minute Lyft, 30-minute CTA ride to The Loop.
