A Roaring 20's Masterpiece nestled among the tree lined serenity of Briar Place, just two blocks from the lakefront. Or a 4/3 w/ a garage! This boutique four unit building adorned with lavishly carved limestone trim features vintage details and unique touches throughout. Enter through this marvelous foyer complete with original dentil molding and period perfect door hardware, then turn to fully appreciate the building's enormous 32 feet of width. A trio of bright 16 pane windows frames the tree canopy of Briar while the ornate wood burning fireplace pulls you in. It's a space normally seen in the movies, never in person. Five layer crown molding adorns every room and serves as a pleasant reminder of the wonderful craftmanship that was a hallmark of classic luxury buildings. Dinner parties, Board meetings, or ad-hoc gatherings would all find comfort in the signature dining room highlighted with Deco wainscoting. The kitchen offers a unique style and layout that provides ample storage, full pantry & counterspace while still exhibiting a sense of character one expects of such a remarkable home. Adjoining the kitchen is the ideal place for a casual eating area, home learning studio, or mystery treasure nook. While the entertaining spaces occupy one half of the unit, a 40 foot long barrel vaulted gallery leads to the four bedrooms each with individual access to a bathroom, all of which were recently renovated in a classic manner consistent with the period of the building. Additional features & updates include in-unit laundry, abundant closet space, new kitchen appliances, refinished hardwood floors throughout the entire unit, and unique lighting fixtures. For comfort, the soothing warmth of radiator heat ensures you are never cold in winter, while the abundance of windows and proximity to the lake promises delightful breezes in the warmer months. Directly behind the property lies a private brick garage spot. The building is located in the highly coveted Nettlehorst school district, and is close walking distance to not only the Lake, but one of Chicago's most lively commercial districts, Broadway in East Lakeview, as well as a multitude of public transit options and LakeShoreDrive. Real estate jargon is sometimes misleading. This place is not. These units rarely come on the market. Deck/balcony and Central Air can be added. Select viewing times only.
