An amazing opportunity in Lakewood-Balmoral/Andersonville. This 136 year-old home is rich in character and charm and has had many lives in the community over the years. In 2005, its current architect-owner meticulously rebuilt the home from the outside in, equipping it for comfortable modern living while maintaining its integrity. This all brick, reimagined Victorian sits high on a 50-foot corner lot with natural light pouring into each room. Graciously-sized, well-designed living spaces strike the perfect balance of an open floor plan for entertaining with plenty of private areas for work, study, and relaxation. Open the front door to a large foyer and the restored, original staircase and stained glass window. The living room features a turret window and custom Rumford fireplace as the focal point, and flows seamlessly into the ample dining space that's perfect for intimate gatherings or a holiday crowd. A large island anchors the kitchen with custom cabinetry, farmhouse sink, dual-fuel Wolf range, heated slate floors, plenty of storage, and a handsome and practical butler's pantry. The spacious main bedroom suite offers complete privacy, a marble bath with a soaking tub, heated floors, built-in linen cabinet and walk-in shower with TV. The dressing room is one-of-a-kind! Large guest room, clean- design bath, and laundry center complete the second level. On the third floor, three more remarkable bedrooms, each with cozy nooks and abundant windows, offer a quiet sanctuary. The English basement-style lower level has high ceilings, remarkable natural light, heated floors and includes a large recreation area with fireplace, custom built-ins, full bath, generous laundry/utility room and a sixth bedroom currently used as an exercise and craft area. The lower level private side entrance makes it ideal for a guest suite or even short term vacation rental. Wood floors and custom millwork, no expense was spared on this restoration. Beautiful landscaped garden and patio provide an oasis in the heart of the city. Just blocks to the lakefront, the Red Line, and minutes to Lake Shore Drive. Enjoy a truly walkable neighborhood, a short walk to shopping and dining in Andersonville and Edgewater. Walk to 1+ rated Pierce School with Sacred Heart, Rogers Park Montessori, Lycee Francaise, and Waldorf School only minutes away.
