Storybook 1928 Tudor Revival two-story brick home on double lot (50' X 124') with side driveway, porte-cochere (carport), and professionally-designed front and back landscaping. This architecturally unique property has been extensively and thoughtfully renovated over the years while retaining its vintage charm and details. A fully restored facade, expansive front garden, and antique paver walkway welcome you into the home. The sunken living room features extra-tall ceilings, newer French windows/doors, original brass sconces, and a cast stone mantel with high-end Mendota direct vent gas fireplace insert. Through the living room French door you'll step out onto the terrace, enclosed in privacy by mature boxwoods and a towering beech tree. The dining room with its curved bay of windows flows into the updated kitchen with Marron Cohiba granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and walk-in pantry. A powder room, sunroom, and enclosed back porch complete the first floor. On the second floor are three generously sized bedrooms with wall mouldings and California closet organization systems. Upstairs also features a magnificent period bathroom with original details, such as plaster columns, tiled walls/floor, and reglazed bathtub, plus a recently gut-renovated shower stall with reproduction tile from Heritage Tile. Throughout both floors you'll enjoy vintage features, such as antique/reproduction light fixtures, arched doorways, crown mouldings, and subtly textured plaster walls, along with modern conveniences, such as Unico/SpacePak air conditioning and top-of-the-line Anderson aluminum-clad wood windows (see attached list of improvements for more information). A full, unfinished basement with tall ceilings includes laundry, tons of storage, and potential for additional finished living space. The very large, fenced backyard features an in-ground sprinkler system (front and back yards), dog run with vintage concrete planter, natural gas grill, flagstone patio, spectacular landscaping with raspberry bramble and Honeycrisp apple tree, and a curved brick walkway leading to the detached two-car brick garage. This special home is nestled within the Rogers Park Manor Bungalow Historic District, a truly beautiful neighborhood and one of the city's best-kept secrets. Steps to Indian Boundary Park and Cultural Center, with wood play structure, water play area, lagoon, tennis courts, Nature Play Center, and historic fieldhouse hosting park district classes (art, dance, yoga, etc) and year-round cultural events (Civic Orchestra of Chicago concerts, annual Do-It-Yourself Nutcracker, etc). Also, close to the recently constructed Northtown library branch and Warren Park. Pleasant one mile walk to Rogers Park Metra station. Broker owned.
