Architecturally significant Victorian row home with a stunning, modern interior in Chicago's coveted Old Town Triangle is steps from the lake, beach, and beautiful Lincoln Park with its charming Farmer's Market, gardens, and zoo. This sophisticated jewel is appointed with the finest finishes: polished nickel, gorgeous custom cabinetry, heated limestone and marble floors, Waterworks bath fixtures and 3 limestone-clad fireplaces. It's ready for today's living with Zero VOC hardwood floors and a smart-home system (surround sound, remote lighting and security). The elegant entrance, through 2 sets of double doors with an original, leaded glass transom, leads to a classic great room perfect for entertaining: 13 foot plaster ceilings, cove molding, 2 limestone gas-start fireplaces with custom bronze hearths, charming, oversized bay windows and bespoke iron bookshelves. An exquisite glass-front butler's pantry with Venetian plaster walls and a marble counter serves the room with loads of space for silver and barware. French doors lead up to the outdoor living space, custom-landscaped with floating pavers, LED lighting, laser-cut metal and Brazilian walnut privacy screens and a built-in kitchen. The gourmet kitchen features large Calacatta Gold marble counters, classic subway tile (floor to ceiling), 6-burner oven, heated stone floors, coffered ceiling, double sinks, and appliances by Wolf, Gaggenau, Miele & Sub Zero (2 dishwashers and 2 freezers). It is perfectly situated at the back of the home, allowing family (and caterers) direct access to the 1-1/2 car extra-tall garage with bike racks, storage and a climbing wall!
