Welcome home to a dramatic, contemporary single-family home in coveted Lincoln Park location on prestigious Howe Street. Constructed in 1993 and underwent an extensive renovation to create a modern, yet warm, inviting, dramatic space. This home is designed to maximize year-round natural light with greenery views from every window.
Enter into an open floor plan featuring 13’ high ceilings, luxe Artemide light fixtures, and refreshing design- far from cookie-cutter and the perfect backdrop to any aesthetic! Cherry hardwood flooring throughout. Bang & Olufsen stereo system with built-in speakers. The gas fireplace with stone surround anchors the beautiful living area, creating its own vignette within the open floor-plan.
The stunning kitchen was featured in Better Homes and Gardens Kitchen and Bath Ideas magazines. Stone floors, custom walnut cabinetry, large farm granite sink, appliance garages,and 2 ½” thick Millenium Gold granite counters are highlights but the star is the built-in copper trough prep sink with disposal sitting in the center of the enormous waterfall island. Ann Sacks bamboo-like tiles serve as a stunning backsplash to compliment the zen style. Finally, a handcrafted walnut slab kitchen table was custom-designed to attach to an extension of the cabinetry and bifurcate the informal eating from the family room. Top-of-the-line appliances include a commercial Wolf 6-burner gas range/oven with grill and griddle, SubZero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and GE trash compactor.
Second and third floors feature 2 master suites, an enormous office with platformed sunroom, and additional family den. The home is 6,000 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 5 ½ baths including a lower level studio suite with full second kitchen– perfect for entertaining or as a separate nanny’s or in-law apartment. You won’t want to leave this unique, serene oasis steps from the fabulous Armitage/Halsted shopping and trendy restaurants! 2-car detached garage with 2 outdoor entertaining spaces!
