ABOUT THIS HOME
This special home is your opportunity to own a piece of Chicago history. Designed by noted architect Hermann von Holst, who worked closely with Frank Lloyd Wright, this eye-catching brick home with Mediterranean influence boasts the perfect balance of classic charm & unique detail.
As you enter through the arched front doorway, you will be greeted by timeless hardwood floors, ornate fixtures, & custom walnut woodwork. The front sitting area provides a peaceful place to relax & entertain. The wall cut-out gives a peek into the kitchen – classic yet updated, with all-new GE appliances. The large bay window above the sink is the perfect place for greenery & allows sunlight to drip beautifully onto the floor as you make your morning coffee.
Making your way into the living room, you will notice the warm glow from thoughtful sconces placed along the walls. Imagine cozy winters by the wood-burning fireplace. From here, the large, window-framed dining room opens up to the patio & spacious backyard. Be sure to admire the original framed blueprints hung on the wall.
Heading upstairs, the grand bifurcated stairs make a stunning impression, reminiscent of historic estates & luxury hotels. First, visit the primary suite, bordered by original walnut built-in shelving along the north wall, & featuring an all-season room overlooking tree-lined Oakley Avenue. Don’t miss the recently-renovated full bathroom, showcasing floor-to-ceiling glass shower doors, white subway tile, & crisp finishes.
Venturing out to the yard, you will appreciate the scale of the property – 10,000 square feet in total. The new, lush landscaping perfectly complements the home – you’ll especially admire the beautiful hydrangeas that last into fall. Within the wrought iron fenced-in backyard, you will also find the sizable, detached two-car garage with a newly installed heater.
More updates on this well-cared-for home include a new roof, attic insulation, new boiler, & sump pump. The basement allows for a plethora of extra storage and is currently used for woodworking.
You will fall for this one-of-a-kind property, & the neighborhood as well. Beverly is known for its beautiful architecture, spacious homes, & tree-lined streets. You are steps from countless parks, bars, restaurants, the Metra, & so much more!
