Don’t drive by-come through the private entry gate and walk through the magical garden to view this house with so many possibilities. A large turn of the century home featuring 13 rooms, 6 bedrooms, 3.1 baths with high ceilings, great flow and a myriad of creative uses. Current owners adapted the property in 2020 to accommodate the return of adult children during the pandemic and it was simple and effective, dividing the front and back of the house into two separate ‘apartments’ along with the 2 bedroom, 2 bath, living room and kitchen in the basement . This set-up allows a great house-hacking opportunity with extra income in this urban oasis. As a large single-family house on a tremendous wide and long lot in vibrant Ravenswood, this property offers space, light and function. Or tear the house down to create a magnificent site for your dream house (RS-3 zoning). This neighborhood is characterized by beautiful, big homes on wide, deep, oversized lots. Built in 1890, this frame house has been lived in by the current owners since 2008 and retains much of its vintage charm- large rooms, big windows, bulls-eye moldings, a large front porch. The flow of the first floor is very welcoming and can be used in a very modern way with a formal living room, huge family room and kitchen, and a great dining room. The second-floor features 4 bedrooms that are generous, with closets and windows to maximize the light from the wide, deep lot, a full bath and laundry. The basement is set up with 2 bedrooms, bathroom living room and kitchen but easily incorporated into the house if that is what works for your lifestyle. The yard is a magic garden with trees and plants curated by the current owner. There is a 2-car garage, large rear deck, patio with pergola, grapes, pears, flowers galore! Steps from the new Metra Station- a block away on the south side of Lawrence and Ravenswood, Mariano’s, Lincoln Square and Andersonville amenities, this property is an amazing opportunity.
