A rare find of a beautiful home on one of the most desirable blocks in the Lakewood Balmoral section of Andersonville. Enjoy a truly impressive tree-lined street filled with stunning historic architecture and blocks known for their community feel and off-the-charts trick-or-treating. This is an area you definitely want to call home. The impressive house sits on an extra wide 37.5' wide lot with a rare side drive, and has charming curb appeal. A heated porch area creates an ideal sitting room entry that opens to a home with beautiful transitional finishes. Walls have been pulled back to open the main floor up, providing a comfortable and flowing living space. The front foyer has been opened to the living room to make it more usable and better incorporated in to the rest of the home, while the decorative fireplace in the living room is highlighted by the stone surround and hearth, along with the wood mantel and built in cabinetry. A formal dining room area has been transformed in to a family room (although could easily be used as dining again). The kitchen includes cherry cabinetry with stainless steel appliances, marble backsplash tiles, and an intelligent layout for cooking, with a bright, sun-filled table space off the back overlooking the back yard. The powder room on this main level has been updated with newer finishes. Three bedrooms are on the second level. The master bedroom includes a master bathroom with tub and separate shower. A fully renovated hall bathroom is shared by the additional two bedrooms. The attic area has been finished off and was used as a bedroom. This versatile space can also double as a play room, home office area, Zoom room, art studio or anything else your needs might require. Downstairs is a fully finished lower level with beautiful built-in cabinetry lining several areas for exceptional storage. A wet bar area with full fridge, sink, and counter help create an entertainment space. There is another newer full bathroom on this level, as well as a laundry area. And the home has a furnace (no radiators) and central air. Outdoor space is increasingly important right now, and this home offers plenty of it. The kitchen area opens out to a large deck that overlooks a paverstone pad area with basketball hoop, along with a lush green yard. A garage has been transformed in to a work shed. (Note the garage doesn't open out to the alley currently anymore. The current owner parks on the side pad which has room for at least two cars.) And besides being on one of the prettiest streets and blocks in the city, this home is so convenient to stroll over to the heart of Andersonville on Clark Street. Enjoy numerous restaurants, including Lady Gregory's, Calos, Andies, Vicente, Hopleaf, Bird Cage, Reza's, Anteprima, Hamburger Mary's, and the list goes on. Don't forget George's Ice Cream or Lost Larson's for dessert. Shop at any of the local shops, from furniture shops, clothing stores, record shops, toy stores, book stores, and more. Walk to the Red Line El stop, grocery stores and the Bryn Mawr historic district. Peirce Elementary School is just a few blocks walk away, and numerous esteemed private schools surround the area as well. This is truly a rare opportunity to live in one of the most desirable areas in a beautiful home.
