You have heard it said that the three most important words in real estate are location, location, location. 2636 W Windsor defines this declaration. This home is situated on an extra-large lot at the junction of Windsor and Virginia, one way and cul-de-sac streets that incur minimum traffic, in the very coveted Ravenswood Gardens neighborhood of Lincoln Square. It is a big house with a great floor plan, abundant rooms and a very flexible floor plan that has been enjoyed and lovingly maintained by long-term owners. The main floor features a welcoming foyer with a huge closet. Sun filled sitting room perfect for piano or plants and an incredible living room with a wood burning fireplace with East Lake Tiles, a cozy den, a formal dining room, a powder room and a true chef’s kitchen with quartzite countertops and walnut cabinetry, loads of storage, a true commercial range, new refrigerator and breakfast bar that adjoins the large family room space flooded with light and access to a big deck and the yard. The second-floor features two huge spa-like baths. The primary bedroom is a dream – extensive king-sized space, room sized walk in closet and a private deck with hot tub. There is a den, a spacious second bedroom with loads of built-ins and a big lofted third bedroom with skylights. Want 4 bedrooms on this level, easy as adding a couple of walls. Great storage in the dry basement plus laundry and a studio space that is an easy transformation to another massive bedroom, and a rock and roll themed half bath. Over the past 10 years, the roof (2022), stucco (2014), many of the windows (2013,2006), garage and greenhouse (2020), tankless HWH (2017), primary bedroom suite addition (2013), kitchen (2016), appliances- Kitchen Aide Wall Oven (2016), Bosch Dishwasher (2016), Samsung Refrigerator(2019), basement(2017), freshly painted and first floor floors refinished (2023), main powder room (2023) have been done. The yard is unlike any other in the Gardens. Fully fenced and oversized with a Koi pond, putting green, and a DIY woodburning pizza oven that works like a charm. There is a wonderful raised alfresco dining area that could double as an outdoor stage if you’re in the mood to entertain. An extensive 2.5+ car garage, a glass greenhouse with water and an outdoor kitchen area are also part of the charm. The location is beyond incredible. The streets nearby angle and dead-end allowing for very little traffic. There is no reason to drive here since the area is home to an amazing variety of restaurants, a first run movie theatre, the Old Town School of Folk Music and abounding with specialty shops. In the award winning Water School district and near many other amazing private schools, including Lychee Francais, De Paul College Prep, North Park Elementary; steps to the Brown Line El at Rockwell for easy access to downtown, Lakeview and Northalsted; a short hop to the lakefront beaches and harbor; close to incredible Welles, Horner and other parks, this is an area like no other. There is an impressive sense of pride of ownership in this neighborhood and the gardens, landscaping and maintenance are extraordinary. If you have not experienced this neighborhood, come see for yourself. 2636 W Windsor is the reason you decide to stay in the city.
