Behind this classic facade is the most unbelievable home! A truly one-of-a-kind family home located in one of Lincoln Park's premier neighborhoods - just steps from North Pond, the lakefront, and Lincoln Park Zoo!

The main level is an entertainer's paradise, featuring an extraordinary open kitchen design, a formal living room with elegant arched windows and a gas fireplace, a dining room with an attached butler's pantry that offers double drawer refrigerator, dishwasher, and ample storage.

The open design of the kitchen to the modern family room with motorized window shades and aluminum-clad wood windows allows for effortless family living with easy access to both the Azek engineered back deck and sport court. Take one of two stairways up to the second level, which offers three spacious bedroom suites. The ultimate primary suite includes floor-to-ceiling windows, a cozy gas fireplace, an oversized custom walk-in closet, and an ensuite spa-like bathroom with dual vanities, soaking tub, and a walk-in shower.
