about this home
Located on a lush, tree-lined block in Chicago's beloved Lincoln Square neighborhood, this sprawling 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom condo (plus a darling sunroom!) is a dreamy retreat in a storied 1920s building. As soon as you cross the foyer & enter the living room, you'll take note of so many lovable vintage details: the white brick decorative hearth flanked by glass enclosed bookshelves, summer sunlight pouring in through 6 large windows with 3 (yes, 3!) exposures, gleaming hardwood floors, & impeccably maintained moldings. Just outside the windows, you will see leafy green trees, as well as a perfect view of sweet Leland Avenue below.
This home is the perfect juxtaposition of old & new, as you will notice in the kitchen. Here, marvel over luxurious marble countertops, upgraded appliances (featuring a double oven!), a convenient pot rack, a farmhouse sink, & chic subway tile. Don't miss the pantry, where you will store your cereal boxes, Trader Joe's snacks, & any other bonus items.
Just off the kitchen, there is a darling sunroom with coveted southern exposure. This extra room is the ideal place for a home office, playroom, or workout area - best of all, it overlooks the shared backyard! When it comes to dining & entertaining, you will adore the gracious dining room with easy access to the kitchen.
As for the roomy bedrooms, both are equipped with closets, ceiling fans, & windows bringing in lots of light. The recently refreshed bathroom has updates like a modern dual vanity, on-trend fixtures, & double mirrors. You'll find a soaking tub/shower combo, as well as storage space for towels, bath products, you name it.
This one-of-a-kind home offers modernities such as in-unit laundry (a newer stackable!), upgraded lighting, custom closets in the hallway & 2nd bedroom, & pull-down window shades throughout. Plus, the price included 1 exterior parking spot & 1 XL storage room in the basement.
This well-loved full-masonry building has been cared for by its dedicated owners, & much upkeep has been completed over the last decade: front landscaping (2022), tuckpointing & parapet masonry (2021 & 2019), new back staircase (2019), new boiler & water heaters (2016), new windows (2015), & even more projects.
Be sure to explore the shared backyard, where you will find a fire pit, dart board, multiple seating areas, & twinkly string lights - imagine the parties you could throw!
