Please note: this home DOES NOT face Milwaukee Ave. So much to love about this 2 bedroom, 2 bath 1 car garage home. The open-concept great room features ample space next to the kitchen area for a dining room table, as well as the flexibility to create a variety of living-room seating configurations. The kitchen offers plenty of storage inside 42-inch maple kitchen cabinets, plus stainless steel appliances, a gas stove, granite countertops, and a large granite island with space for bar seating. French doors open to a spacious (20x5) balcony right off the great room, perfect for grilling and entertaining friends and family. Enjoy views of mature trees and brilliant sunsets from this west-facing outdoor space, located in the rear of the unit, away from the busy traffic on Milwaukee. In the winter, cozy up in front of the granite-accented gas fireplace, or treat yourself to a soak in the jetted tub inside the main bedroom's private/attached bath. The main bedroom also includes a spacious closet with wire shelving and a bonus built-in storage space above the closet. The walk-in closet in the large second bedroom offers built-in shelving, ideal for storing shoes and bags, as well as two levels of hanging rods for clothes. Transportation options abound: In less than 5 minutes, easily access the Blue Line, CTA/Pace buses, the Metra, or the I-90/94 expressways. Pull straight into your designated parking space from the rear of the building, and use the covered garage for extra storage. This quiet building offers plenty of privacy, with just two other residential units and one ground-floor commercial unit (an insurance company). Building is self-managed, with healthy reserves and no upcoming special assessments. This condo also features freshly painted walls and ceilings, and central air and heat. A stackable washer/dryer is tucked away in a closet along the main hallway. Just steps away, Jefferson Park offers a playground, public pool, baseball diamond, and lots of green space. Buy locally made goods and fresh produce at the summer Jefferson Park Farmers Market. Or walk across the street to the indoor Winter Market at the Copernicus Center, which also hosts concerts and festivals. Walkable local businesses, coffee shops, bars, and restaurants include Chicago staples, like the Gale Street Inn, as well as plenty of newcomers: Sunnyside Plants, Weston's Coffee, Printer's Row craft brewery, artisanal cocktail bar Moonflower, and Mexican restaurant Iztatl Cocina. Popular chains and franchises within a few blocks include Jewel-Osco, CVS, 7-11, Subway, Dunkin' Donuts, Starbucks, Wing Stop, and more.
