Magic... The 40 London-style rowhomes of Alta Vista Terrace are among Chicago's most beloved and architecturally distinctive landmarks. Behind 3839's flamboyant Gothic entry, two-story bays and soaring gable the home's original details have been meticulously preserved and effortlessly blended with 21st century convenience, exceptional storage and a fully furnished 600 sf roof terrace! The home's double door entry foyer has the 5 original feathered glass windows and opens to the honey-colored oak staircase. Hardwood floors, two fireplaces, the original china cabinet, 10" baseboards and finely detailed crown moldings adorn the living and dining rooms. A 2-story rear addition added space and floods the rooms with morning light. The kitchen's custom cabinetry mirrors the egg and dart molding of the tin ceiling, and 8 leaded glass windows from the original Ann Sathers restaurant create a wall of color in the walk-in pantry and adjacent sitting room. A beautiful period appropriate powder room has been added to the first floor too. Three bedrooms on second floor, including master with beautifully outfitted walk-in closet. Finished lower level has 7.5' ceilings, family room, office, full bath (with an original 1903 sink), lux laundry room with cabinetry and beverage center PLUS a 22' storage room with built-ins. Access to the serene roof terrace is via an inside staircase. Transferrable leased parking directly behind home. Additional free parking available in Cubs lot for AVT residents.
