Located on a quiet, historical, tree-lined street in the Kenwood-Mansion District of picturesque Hyde Park, this spacious, three bedroom, two full bath condominium offers loads of charm and stately sophistication. Crown molding, ceiling beams and hardwood floors provide characteristic vintage details. The condo offers natural light, scenic views and lush tree tops from windows facing all four directions. The sunroom, living room, foyer, dining room and kitchen flow beautifully from the south to the north end of the home. The south-facing sunroom is a plant lover's paradise, and its peaceful serenity provides the perfect spot for morning coffee or a mobile office. The huge living room is anchored by a wood-burning fireplace and its sweeping walls are perfect for every size of art work. Built-in bookshelves line an entire wall of the foyer, while a walk-in coat closet is adjacent. The formal dining room has lovely refinished French doors and a built-in china hutch that is an amazing conversation piece. The large, updated galley kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a washer and dryer tucked in a closet with ample shelving. This gracious condo offers three walk-in closets, two large bedrooms (the main bedroom has bay windows), and a third with its own en suite bathroom with an original claw-foot soaking tub. Carefully selected ceiling fans add just the right touch and function to keep cool, conditioned air, circulating during the summer months. There is an assigned storage locker in the basement, a bike room, and an unexpected backyard with a patio, grills and a well-kept garden! The building is well-maintained throughout and well-managed. Professional landscaping, a new walkway, newer roofing, an electrical upgrade and newer windows on the North and West sides of the building, all add to the value of this home. The original vintage windows up front have storms and screens. Assessments include professional management, heat, snow removal, lawn care, trash removal from back porch receptacles, cleaning and maintenance of interior and exterior common areas and general maintenance of building systems, such as plumbing. If location is everything then this gorgeous condominium delivers on all fronts as it is just a few blocks from Chicago's lakefront and just minutes from the heart of downtown or the University of Chicago campus. Express Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) buses to downtown, three major CTA train lines and free University of Chicago shuttle buses all offer convenient alternatives to driving. Hyde Park's 53rd Street anchors a bustling business district that includes coffee houses, amazing restaurants and wine shops, bookstores, boutique hotels and an assortment of unique retail shops.
