    Description

    Situated close to the Lake with easy access to Lake Shore Drive, this magnificently restored home sits on a rare 45ft wide lot in the Lakewood Balmoral neighborhood also known as "Winnetka in the City." Lakewood Balmoral lies in the heart of East Andersonville and is one of Chicago's most beautiful & historically preserved neighborhoods of single family homes. The area is also in one of the safest Wards in all of Chicago and offers families and individuals who want to live in the City the highly desirable & hard to find combination of safety, large yards & city amenities all within an easy commute to downtown. This home is larger than it appears & offers approx. 5,900 sq ft of living space. The home's current long-term owners purchased the home from an architect. Thereafter, with the assistance of other historic preservationist architects they have made additions and upgrades throughout the home to provide all the modern-day luxury amenities and conveniences while maintaining the original craftsmanship & grandeur of an incomparable home that just can't be captured in photos. This home also features a perfect floor plan for entertaining with wonderful room sizes; 4 wood-burning/gas fireplaces; 5 bathrooms; front and back staircases; a formal dining room with wood beamed ceiling and fireplace; two butler's pantries (one with wet bar); laundry on the first floor; an informal dining room with adjoining sunken family room with fireplace; and an amazing outdoor patio adjacent to the 2 car garage that is a perfect urban oasis. The master suite has its own fireplace, separate dressing room and new marble bath with heated marble floors. The 3rd floor of the home offers a private suite with bedroom, bathroom & family room [ perfect for in-laws, teenagers or live in help] The finished lower level has an office, workout and game area, bathroom and large storage areas. Other improvements include a new roof and updated and new mechanical systems with 3 furnaces and zoned heat and spacepac AC. Authentic & luxurious at the same time...from the soaring ceilings of the foyer to the original built-ins and triple sawn wood trim and doors throughout. Only 3 blocks to Red Line. Children in the neighborhood attend the following schools: Pierce, Sacred Heart, R.P. Montessori, Lycee Francaise, the Waldorf School, Latin and Parker. Owner has new architectural plans for an addition with an expanded kitchen and second floor en suite which will convey with the home.
