Elegant treatment of this beautifully maintained and improved vintage condominium in an unbeatable East Hyde Park location. You will think you've entered another era of genteel living when you walk through the door. Rich colors, lively wallpaper, restored woodwork, gleaming hardwood floors throughout. The master bath was recently renovated with stunning slate tiles in a double wide and deep walk-in shower. The cook's kitchen has brand new butcher block counter tops, glass fronted cabinets and a long butler's pantry with plenty of storage. They turned the 4th bedroom into a breakfast room with a lovely view of neighboring gardens, but you could certainly use it as a bedroom. The living room has an electric fireplace insert inside the vintage mantel flanked by bookshelves and a french door leading out to the private front porch; perfect for watching the world pass as you work from home in the shade of the trees. There are three large bedrooms off the long hallway. The shared primary bath can be accessed from the hallway or the primary bedroom. In the hallway is a recessed restored curved bench with a boot caddy: a throwback to the building's historic roots. The formal dining room has 3 tall bay windows and ceiling beams, adding to its charm. There are Pella thermopane windows throughout. Two deep walk-in closets are off the hallway. Also in the kitchen is a pantry closet with a stack-able washer and gas dryer. Step out the back door and you are on a private back porch overlooking the wide back yard. In the basement there is plenty of room for bicycles and your own private storage room. The heat is included in the assessments and there are 2 air conditioners that will remain with the unit. It's an easy walk or roll to the Museum of Science and Industry, the 57th St Beach, Promontory Point, Trader Joe's, Office Depot, Walgreens, shops, restaurants and the University of Chicago. There is a bus stop at the corner to the Loop and the U of C. Head to the train tracks and you'll be at the Metra stop going north to the Loop or south to the Indiana Dunes. Hop on a bike and you can be pretty much anywhere you want to be in minutes, including the famed Lakefront bike path.
