Description

Nestled beneath a steeply pitched tile roof is a handsome row house, located just steps from the University of Chicago campus and the Laboratory Schools. Designed in 1904 by the distinguished New York based firm Mann, MacNeille & Lindeberg, this historic residence is beautifully detailed in both its exterior brickwork and interior woodwork. The first level is graciously proportioned for entertaining with a sunlit living room focused on the arch of a wood burning fireplace, while the dramatic wood paneled dining room offers access to the large back yard through leaded glass doors. A beautifully appointed gourmet kitchen, powder room, hardwood floors, pocket doors and small secret stairway add to the amenities. Heading up the centrally located main staircase, one finds three bedrooms and a family room (or 4th bedroom) and a full bath. The third level primary suite is filled with light and offers a fireplace surrounded by bookcases, a south facing porch, large dressing/closet area and upgraded bathroom with heated floors. A charming alcove is situated across from a small stairway which leads to a private aerie above. The current owners use this skylit space as a gym; a full bath is located here as well. In the basement are a wine cellar, laundry, mechanicals and storage. Outdoors is a lushly landscaped yard with paved and gated parking situated behind a colorful mural by artist Ruben Aguirre. All these features, combined with the superb location, make this a highly desirable home - where you can write the next chapter of it's amazing history.
