    Description

    Live in luxury with rental income to cover your mortgage, OR as one enormous ~15,000SF single family home. Huge investment potential! Double-lot, vintage 4-flat in desirable south-east Lakeview East neighborhood on quiet, tree-lined street, steps to the Lake, Diversey Harbor and Lincoln Park. Three full-floor, 6BR/3BTH, 13-room apartments, each 3,900SF. Grand-scale entertaining. Spread out while working/educating from home. Fourth apartment is a bright 3BR/2BTH "English" garden unit including a 750SF living/dining room with a Prairie Style fireplace, eat-in kitchen/family room, and large walk-in closets. Owner-occupied for 20+ years, first time on the open market in over a half century. Newly renovated to provide the perfect balance of modern luxury and historic elegance, allowing maximum opportunities for a buyer. A rare and time-sensitive opportunity to purchase a stunning vintage luxury 4-flat before a potential future condo offering. Blending a unique combination of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Prairie Style architectural details, the imposing facade displays both Flemish and English-bond brickwork and ornate iron-work at the main door and ground-floor fenestration. The three large, full-floor units live like single family homes. Large formal living rooms with abundant windows, high ceilings, original built-in bookshelves, stained-glass, deep crown molding, and a Prairie Style fireplace. Welcome guests to the grand dining room with three built-in china cabinets and unique arched ceiling. The renovated, large, eat-in kitchens have abundant storage with walk-in pantries and in-unit laundry area. In addition, there is a separate serving kitchen (or alternatively a family dining space) and a private exterior porch for barbequing off the kitchen. Other features include a library (or 6th bedroom) plus a bright sunroom with windows on three sides. Formal entrance foyer and wide, spacious, 24-foot long hallway serve as great gallery space. Formal rooms are separable by French or pocket doors. Excellent opportunity for a full-floor, private roof deck for the top-floor owner's unit. Also room for an enclosed garage with amenity deck in large parking area. Stands separate from surrounding buildings for natural light and breezes from all 4 facades. Marble/granite bathrooms, frameless shower doors, refinished oak and maple hardwood floors, new boiler, and in-unit fuse boxes and washer dryer hook-ups. The 3 large apartments have 5 king-size, dual-window bedrooms with generous closets. Primary bathrooms have double Carrara sink tops or separate shower and soaking tub. Fifth bedroom is a separate two-room tandem suite with a full bathroom, perfect for an in-law or nanny suite. Low-maintenance landscape with outdoor garden seating areas which could be expanded into a larger outdoor space. On-site parking at rear of building to accommodate 5+ cars. Adjacent to Sheridan Road express bus lines to Michigan Avenue and LaSalle St. downtown. Short walk to Trader Joe's, Mariano's, arts movie theater, dry cleaners, restaurants, and other amenities. "Walker's" and "Biker's Paradise" Walk Score of 93/92 respectively. Sought after Nettlehorst K-8/Lakeview High School, around the corner from Mary Meyer and Wee Care preschools, and close to Francis Parker and Chicago Day School. Historic tax incentives potentially available as significantly located in both a National & Chicago landmark district. Designed by renowned architect Samuel Crowen in 1910, the building served as the Greek Consulate and residence of the Consul General from the 1950's-70's. A coveted rental with strong 30-year rental history. Managing Broker-owned.
