1140 East Hyde Park #1D, Chicago, IL 60615
The trees on the Boulevard are just starting to fill out with spring foliage, making it feel like you are in a tree house in the big sunroom that opens to the living and dining rooms which are both in the front of this huge condo which has just about everything (including a private garage stall out back). The entire place has been painted in lively colors. The formal foyer has vaulted ceilings with the original decorative plaster detailing and crown moldings. During the renovation from 2012, the kitchen and baths were updated. New double paned windows were installed throughout the unit. The shared primary bath features a granite countertop with a double sink vanity and a tub/shower with a designer tiled surround and glass doors. The 2nd en-suite bath has a fully tiled tub/shower. There is a terrific cook's kitchen with a sleek glass cooktop and double wall ovens. You will also find a double bowl stainless steel sink with a tiled backsplash and a breakfast bar for less formal dining. The butler pantry has vintage glass display cabinets above and more drawers below. The 36 ft long gallery hallway starting at the front foyer and ending at the master bedroom at the end of the condo has a unique curved vaulted ceiling. It's very special that there is a big sunroom in the front with sun all day long from the east/south/west exposures PLUS another sunroom at the other end of the condo with east/north/west windows. The living room has a massive decorative fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves on either side. French paned floor to ceiling windows separate the living room from the dining room; the original folding French doors are in the basement and could be replaced. Tall vintage wainscoting lines the walls of the elegant formal dining room. Deep crown molding runs along the ceiling of both the living and dining rooms and the wall above the fireplace in the living room is mirrored so it looks like the room goes on forever. The front loading washer and dryer are in a closet in the 4th bedroom which also has the ensuite bath. Located at the edge of the historic Kenwood Mansion District, it is just a few blocks from the Metra & express bus to the Loop and the Whole Foods and Marshall's. The University of Chicago Campus bus stops at the corner, & the Lakefront is an easy walk or roll away. In fact, it's easy to bike throughout the neighborhood. Trader Joe's is just a few more blocks away and Binny's is in the opposite direction about the same distance north. It is a block away from the Chicago Free School and Kenwood School of Ballet. It has a very walkable and very bikeable WalkScore. It's easy to get to the best restaurants & shops that make Hyde Park such a special place to be. Investors can rent this unit! Pets (up to 2 per unit) are welcome with no weight restriction. Assigned private big storage room and a bike room in the basement. You drive directly into the garage down the drive from the Boulevard, right behind your unit.
