This charming home has just been been rejuvenated for the future decades. The sellers recently completed a full renovation of the kitchen and the first floor full bath. New floors were installed in the kitchen to match the original Douglas fir floors throughout the rest of the main level, and all were finished to blend seamlessly. The new tankless hot water heater was installed in June. In the front of the house are custom built, double paned, energy efficient wood French doors installed during the renovation to open to the large brick walled patio and amazing deep front garden. The leaded glass windows above them were custom designed to mirror the set of original leaded glass windows near the front door. This home is an anomaly in the midst of the huge mansions of Kenwood. While as historic as its neighbors, it has the much more intimate feel of a comfortable home on a graceful lot. Many vintage details remain, like the fireplace, leaded glass, the staircase leading up to the 2nd floor and the stunning original stained glass window that sits proudly at the top of the stairs. A skylight at the top of the stairs brings welcome light to the the landing and hallway. Unlike many Chicago homes which are long and narrow, this home sits on a wide lot far back from the street. The main floor is a bright open space from east to west facing north through the floor to ceiling windows and doors to the beautiful yard. The fireplace sits at the end of the space, anchoring the dining room. The kitchen is open with a big island featuring an overhang of the quartz countertop with room for 4 stools It also contains built-in cutting boards, electric and terrific storage. The Amish cabinet markers who designed the custom kitchen and bathroom cabinetry created the ceiling beams in the living room which are actually HVAC ducts covered with custom barn wood to create a vintage look while concealing contemporary infrastructure. Nest thermostats were installed for efficiency. The white kitchen cabinets extend to the ceiling and there are plenty of drawers for storage and 2 glass fronted top cabinets. The appliances are all stainless steel including the Viking gas range and microwave which were new in June. The copper farmer's sink and faucet add to the charm of the room. There is a bedroom on the first level which is currently used as an office. The first floor bathroom has a charming glass walled shower with mullioned panes. It also has front loading laundry machines and clever custom built-in storage. The original 6 panel doors in the living room have been converted to pocket doors to maximize space and to add charm. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms under the eaves and two more full baths, each with a tub/shower. The hall bath has a white porcelain vessel sink installed in a vintage wooden bureau. The master bath has a unique vintage pink and white pedestal sink. The second bedroom has an alcove that leads through two new glass doors out to a private tree shaded balcony. The third bedroom has an alcove with a 'Harry Potter' closet big enough for sleepovers. The master bedroom has a row of newer wood windows overlooking the garden and an alcove big enough for a generous workspace. The attic is accessed by a drop down stairs and is used for extra storage. There is also a storage shed to the left of the front door which stores garden tools and furniture. The house sits all the way to the rear of the lot which provides a glorious front yard all the way to the black iron fence and gates at the sidewalk. There is a side drive long enough for 2 or more cars, and a brick patio that extends across the front of the house and around to the west of it. Huge mature trees create lovely shade in the summer and the gardens are planted with perennials to enjoy every year. The setting could not be more glorious and the house could not be more charming. A place where you can really settle in for years to come.
