Enormous, double-width+, vintage 4-flat in desirable Lakeview East neighborhood on quiet, tree-lined street, steps to the Lake, Diversey Harbor and Lincoln Park. Three full-floor, 3,900SF 6BR/3BTH, 13-room units for grand-scale entertaining or to spread out while working/educating from home. Fourth unit is a 3BR/2BTH "English" garden apartment including a 750SF living/dining room with a Prairie-style fireplace, eat-in kitchen/family room, and 3 large walk-in closets. Owner-occupied for the last 20+ years, this is the first time the building is on the open market in over a half century. Newly/recently renovated to provide the perfect balance of modern luxury and historic elegance, all units are currently open for maximum opportunities for a buyer to select their owner's unit, to potentially duplex into a mega-unit, or to choose their own tenants to take advantage of additional luxury units for future upside in rents. A rare and time-sensitive opportunity to purchase a stunning vintage renovated luxury 4-flat before a planned condo offering. Blending a unique combination of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Prairie Style architectural details, the imposing facade displays both Flemish and English-bond brickwork and ornate iron-work at the main door and ground-floor fenestration. Three identical full-floor units live like single family homes. All have large formal living rooms with abundant windows, high ceilings, original built-in bookshelves, stained-glass, wood trim, deep crown molding, and a Prairie-style fireplace. Welcome guests to the grand dining room with three built-in china cabinets and unique arched ceiling. The renovated, large, eat-in kitchens have abundant storage with walk-in pantries and in-unit laundry area. In addition, there is a separate serving kitchen (or alternatively a family dining space) and a private exterior porch off the kitchen. Other features include a library (or 6th bedroom) plus a bright sunroom with windows on three sides. Formal entrance foyer and wide, spacious, 24-foot long hallway serve as great gallery space. All formal rooms are separable by "Arts and Crafts" and Art Nouveau French or pocket doors. Excellent opportunity for a full-floorplate private roof deck for the top-floor owner's unit or to be accessible by all building residents. The building stands separate from surrounding buildings to allow for natural light and breezes from all 4 facades. Newly-renovated with marble/granite bathrooms with frameless shower doors, refinished oak/maple hardwood floors (throughout), fresh paint, new boiler, and in-unit fuse boxes and washer dryer hook-ups. The 3 large units have 5 king-sized, dual-window bedrooms with generous closets. Primary bathrooms have double Carrara sink tops or separate shower and soaking tub. Fifth bedroom is a two-room tandem suite with a separate full bathroom, perfect for an in-law or nanny suite. Low-maintenance landscape with outdoor garden seating area which could be expanded into a larger outdoor space. On-site parking at rear of building to accommodate 5+ cars. The building is adjacent to Sheridan Road express bus lines to Michigan Avenue and LaSalle St. downtown. Short walk to Trader Joe's, Mariano's, arts movie theater, dry cleaners, restaurants, and other amenities. "Walker's" and "Biker's Paradise" Walk Score of 93/92 respectively. Sought after Nettlehorst K-8/Lakeview High School, and around the corner from Mary Meyer and Wee Care preschools and the new Everbrook Academy of Lincoln Park. Historic tax incentives potentially available as building is significantly located in both a National and Chicago landmark district. Designed by renowned architect Samuel Crowen in 1910, the building served as the Greek Consulate and residence of the Consul General from the 1950's-70's. A coveted rental with very few vacancies in known 30-year rental history. Rental history and expense information available upon request. Listing broker has ownership interest in the property.
