about this home
Located just a block from Chicago’s darling Armitage Avenue & nestled in the premier pocket of Lincoln Park, 2057 North Racine #2N is a one-of-a-kind jewel box home fit for the pages of a magazine. This 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom vintage condo is situated in an intimate 7-unit building with a rich history — it has been loved & appreciated by its residents for over a century.
You’ll enter through the front door & all at once, you will feel a calming sense of home. Notice the gleaming hardwood floors, bay windows, & unique architecture that you can only find in a storied home. The living room is expansive, boasting enough space for a sofa, coffee table, chairs, & even more furniture. In the afternoons & early evenings, this room glows with hues of rose & gold sunlight. There is a bedroom right off the living room — set apart with French doors, it is perfect for a home office, nursery, playroom, or library.
From here, you will explore the dining room. This transitional area is graced with a cozy fireplace for chilly Chicago nights. Imagine hosting friends in this open space: the hearth crackling, candles aglow, & food spread out on your dining table.
Next, the sunny eat-in kitchen will beckon you. You’ll find generous windows & a French door to the private balcony, as well as a plethora of kitchen upgrades: glossy calacatta laza quartz countertops & backsplash, gold Restoration Hardware hardware, pristine white cabinetry, & stainless appliances. The indoors flow seamlessly with the outdoors in the kitchen. In the spring & summer, you’ll gaze through your windows to see lush green ivy adorning the brick walls, reminiscent of historic homes in Montmartre. Facing east, the kitchen dances with light in the mornings as your coffee brews in the pot.
From the kitchen, you will visit the primary bedroom. This room can fit a queen or a king, as well as a dresser & end tables. Don’t miss the custom built-in closets. These echo the kitchen finishes — cream-colored doors & golden hardware — & they offer a mix of drawers & shelving. Across from the primary bedroom, you will tour the bathroom. Here, discover double sinks, on-trend sconces, luxurious cabinetry, matte black hexagonal tile flooring, & a classy subway-tiled tub/shower enclosed with a glass door. This bathroom is a dream! The third bedroom is right across from the kitchen, & in here, you will enjoy a picturesque view of the ivy, as well as a deep closet with organization.
Last but not least, this special home is upgraded to 2022 standards: Nest thermostat, in-unit laundry, dimmable & recessed lighting, & central heat/air. There is 1 garage parking spot (a rarity in the area!) & 2 enormous storage lockers included in the price.
As for location, it simply cannot be beat. 2057 North Racine #2N is steps from restaurants (try neighborhood fave Old Pueblo Cantina or the much-lauded Armitage Ale House), shopping (Serena & Lily, Parachute, Art Effect), Armitage Brown Line, Foxtrot & other conveniences, sweet spots (order a waffle cone from Jeni’s or a confetti cookie from Sweet Mandy B’s), & much more. Plus, these top schools are around the corner: Oscar Mayer Elementary, Lincoln Park High School, & DePaul University. Welcome to your dream home.
