Description

Come fall in love with this I.M. Pei & Harry Weese Mid-Century Masterpiece. This impeccable townhome features three levels of bright, well-thought out, beautifully designed living space. Perfectly located on a corner lot in the heart of the University of Chicago campus neighborhood. The main floor is a winning combination of open floor plan (living and dining area). The main floor also offers a 5th bedroom or study with a half-bathroom. The custom designed kitchen offers tons of cabinets, granite countertops, a large copper sink, custom made pantry shelves, and plenty of room for a kitchen table. Upstairs, there are four generous bedrooms, all with great views through floor to ceiling windows, and two upgraded bathrooms. The primary bedroom features an ensuite bathroom with a large walk-in shower. The walk-out basement is finished with a large family room, separate office space, utility room, and a flex room that was formerly used to grow beautiful orchids. The flex room would be great for a Podcast space, music room, or gym, just to name a few. Out back, the gorgeous, Japanese inspired, professionally designed and landscaped private yard with mature plantings provides space for outdoor dining and extensive gardening opportunities. At the back of the yard is a one-car designated parking spot.This home has been lovingly maintained and upgraded by its long-time owners. The locations is absolutely extraordinary. On a quiet tree-lined street with views of historic single-family homes, convenient to both Lab School locations, the University of Chicago campus, Bixler Playlot, Catholic Theological Union, just steps from the Metra and downtown buses, and the 55th Street shopping center.
