On a blooming, tree-lined block in Chicago's beloved Buena Park neighborhood, this 2-bedroom (plus 2 sunrooms!), 2-bathroom pre-war penthouse is the kind of rare property that will grab your attention & hold it as you take in the exquisite details. Here, you'll discover a striking balance of history, elegance, & the kind of comfort that can only be found at home. You'll open the front door & immediately be taken by the sheer size of this residence. The grand foyer points you in 3 different directions - the living room, the dining room, or down the hallway toward the bedrooms. If you begin in the living room, the deep blue walls contrasted with the original wood moldings will make you feel as if you've just stepped into Ralph Lauren's Polo Bar in New York City. Take note of the gleaming hardwoods, stately chandelier, & built-in bookshelves flanking the gas fireplace. From this room, you will visit the front sunroom, a very special space surrounded by windows that overlook beautiful Buena Avenue below. This versatile area can be used as a sitting area (perfect for an evening nightcap!), playroom, office... there are endless options. Next, tour the dining room, where you will find enough space for an 8-10 person dining table. There are 3 sets of doors guarding this space - stately vintage French doors, not to be missed! Leave them open to admire their beauty, or shut them to create a private dining experience. Through the butler's pantry, you will then enter the reimagined kitchen. This thoughtful renovation transformed an aging kitchen into a modern masterpiece - you will adore the quartzite countertops, new custom cabinetry, patterned tile backsplash, stainless appliances (don't miss the wine fridge!), & sunlight, which pours in through the skylight above & through the stained glass windows. The hallway leads you toward the bedrooms & bathrooms. The second bedroom boasts a spacious closet & a Murphy bed, while the white marble guest bath offers a glass shower, soft sconces, heated floors, & extra storage. The primary bedroom is at the end of the corridor, & it is a true suite! You'll appreciate the massive layout with a large nook for a desk or reading area, walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom with a tub & skylight, & the back sunroom. This last room is another sun-soaked flexible space with rustic terra-cotta-inspired flooring, more built-ins, & exposed brick. As a final note, this home is fully-equipped with modernities like in-unit laundry, central HVAC, updated electrical, & 2 enormous private storage closets (1 off the kitchen & 1 in the basement, both included in the price). 754 West Buena is an all-brick walk-up (dating back to 1912) in the most desirable pocket of Buena Park. The timeless building has a dreamy shared courtyard with twinkle lights, budding flowers, & seating choices - not to mention a commanding entryway & traditional staircase with spindles that takes you up to the homes. From this address, enjoy quick access to the lake (the underpass is just down the street), LSD, Montrose Harbor, & many CTA stops. You couldn't be closer to restaurants & bars (try The Green Mill for live jazz), grocery stores & coffee shops (Dollop is around the corner), gyms, parks, CPS Level 1 Brennemann School, & so much more. Welcome to your dream home.
