The grand lady of Lakewood Balmoral was completely rebuilt from the inside out by its architect owner. An all brick, reimagined Victorian sits high on a 50 ft corner lot with natural light pouring into each room. Graciously sized, well-designed rooms strike the perfect balance between an open floor plan, perfect for entertaining, and plenty of necessary private spaces for work, school, and recreation. Open the front door to a large foyer and the view of the restored, original staircase and stained glass window. The living room features a rounded bay window and custom Rumsford fireplace as the focal point and flows seamlessly into the dining room, big enough for a table for 10 to 12. A large island anchors the kitchen with custom cabinetry, farmhouse sink, dual-fuel Wolfe range, heated slate floors, plenty of storage, and a unique Butler's pantry. The spacious primary suite offers complete privacy, a marble bath with a soaking tub, built-in linen cabinet and walk-in shower with a TV, and a one-of-a-kind walk-in closet. Large guest room, tastefully designed bath, and laundry center complete the second level. The third floor has three more bedrooms, each with vintage features and thoughtful storage, and a large bath with a bunkhouse sink. Lower level provides plenty of flexible space and remarkable natural light with heated floors, a large recreation area with more custom built-ins, another custom fireplace, a full bath, a large laundry room, and a sixth bedroom currently used as an exercise and craft area. There is a private side entrance, making this level ideal for a guest suite. Wood floors and custom millwork throughout, this is a must-see. Just blocks to the Lakefront, the Red Line, and minutes to Lakeshore Drive. Enjoy a truly walkable neighborhood with dining, shopping on Clark Street and along Bryn Mawr with 1+ rated Pierce School, Sacred Heart, Rogers Park Montessori, the Lycee Francaise, and Waldorf only minutes away.
