About This Home
Located in Chicago’s red-hot West Town neighborhood, 1700 West Chicago Avenue, Unit 3 is a sun-soaked 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom top-floor, corner duplex up with so many details to uncover.
You’ll walk through the front door & immediately notice the wide, open-concept floor plan & tall ceilings — sunshine fills the kitchen & living room through eastern & southern windows (replaced in 2021). In the kitchen, you’ll appreciate the stylish finishes: jet-black granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, classic subway tile backsplash, & a trendy light fixture. You’ll find tons of extra storage in the white cabinets, & a large breakfast bar rounds out the space.
The spacious living room flows naturally into the dining nook located in a historic turret, you’ll love the convenience & charm. On this level, be sure to check out the coat closet, side-by-side washer and dryer (replaced in 2018), chic guest bathroom with a marble dual vanity & 2 massive bedrooms. The first bedroom is large enough to fit a queen-sized bed and boasts east-facing bay windows. You’ll also find 2 large closets that span the whole wall – both outfitted in Elfa shelving. The second bedroom, just down the hall, offers more closet storage (also featuring Elfa shelving) & is even more spacious than the first. Here, you can easily fit a king-sized bed for a luxurious guest room, or use it as an oversized home office or workout room. Off of this bedroom, enjoy the first of 3 spacious decks, perfect for grilling.
Next, take the wide staircase to the upper level, where you will find the primary suite and 2 (yes, 2!) private roofdecks. The primary bathroom is airy & bright, featuring marble throughout, a dual vanity, large walk-in shower, & a large linen closet. The primary bedroom is incredibly spacious, easily fitting a king-sized bed, & has a walk-in closet with ample storage thanks to more Elfa shelving.
Step out from the primary bedroom onto the southeast private roofdeck – here, you’ll enjoy sun all day long. Don’t miss the other private roofdeck – this oversized deck faces north and is accessible from the hallway, making it perfect for entertaining. Both the north and south roofdecks feature coveted skyline views.
Last but certainly not least, this historic condo is equipped with modern amenities like additional storage, a garage parking spot with an additional tandem exterior spot, central heat & air (both furnace & HVAC were replaced in 2021!), & new windows throughout. This all-brick, mid-rise building is close to everything: Chicago Avenue, dozens of restaurants (Beatnik, Yuzu Sushi, & Forbidden Root are all a stone’s throw away!) & bars, coffee shops, the Kennedy, & tons of public transportation options.
