Available for in-person showings! A sophisticated and spacious home in a top Ravenswood location, 4896 North Paulina has undergone a plush renovation. Located in the northeast corner of the Ravenswood neighborhood-adjacent to the Lincoln Square, Andersonville, and Winnemac neighborhoods-the home sits on a huge, 52x165 corner lot. The location is a commuter's dream; it's close to the Ravenswood Metra station and schools, including Lycee Francais de Chicago, the Chicago Waldorf School, and the Rogers Park Montessori School. Originally built in 1885, the existing structure of this elegant, three-level, six-bedroom, fivebathroom home, was rehabbed down to the original masonry walls to give this historic home a new chapter. This large home features an estimated 5,300 square feet of high-quality design with a contemporary flair, and boasts ceilings of over 10' on the first and second floors. Throughout the home, you'll notice the elegant trim package, which includes 8' doors, modern hardware, and custom railings. And as the house sits on a spacious corner lot, the rooms in this home bask in loads of natural light. Apparent right from opening the striking, original front door, the main floor flows seamlessly together-the foyer, the large living room, dining room, lounge area, into the high-end kitchen, and out to the back deck. The main floor also features an elegant first-floor powder room, three coveted mudrooms, and plenty of storage. It is perfect for entertaining. The kitchen boasts honed, Italian porcelain counters; professional appliances-Wolf, Fisher Paykel, Sub-Zero, Bosch; a large breakfast peninsula that can seat six; a spacious, separate, custom-built pantry; and a breakfast room. The kitchen's warm woods, and elegant materials will make you feel at ease and right at home. Upstairs, you'll find four large bedrooms with custom-built closets. One of these is the gorgeous master suite, which has its own private roof terrace, and features a soaking tub w/ large separate shower, as well as a large, walk-in closet. And the well-laid out upstairs laundry room offers stone countertops, a stainless-steel sink, and European-style cabinetry. The lower level-which features comforting, floor-radiant heat throughout-includes a family room with loads of natural light, a wet bar complete with wine cooler, two spacious bedrooms, a large bath, and storage rooms. The exterior of the property offers an open deck off of the family room, comprised of low-maintenance composite materials and a wood trellis; a covered front porch with originally restored brick and stone elements; Marvin windows; Hardie siding; and two separate garages, allowing parking for four cars. The fully landscaped and fenced-in yard has both a spacious patio w/firepit, perfect for alfresco entertaining, as well as a large play area. Floor Plans and Site Plans are available in PDF format.
