Welcome to the former home of Nobel Prize winner and president of the University of Chicago - George Beadle. Two bold renovations have added space, grace and amenities to this solid 1900 rowhouse. Martin B. Schaffer's mid-century rebuild integrated the main floor around a dramatic spiral staircase. A rebuild of the kitchen and bathrooms by David Raino Ogden followed in 2006-2009. The main floor flows graciously between an open-plan living room and a 12-seat dining room opening to a slate-countered, prosumer kitchen for casual or elegant entertaining. Upstairs, a redesigned light-filled suite features a separate study area, a skylit amenity-packed bathroom and a vast ceder-lined closet. Two additional bedrooms, an open lounge and second updated bath complete the second floor. The serene, extra-long back garden by noted designer Kris Barker from 2010-2020 has a fully-appointed deck and automatic sprinklers. It's accessed via a mudroom off the kitchen or by a separate passageway. A refurbished, bright full basement has updated boiler and appliances, has a separate entrance, and gives room to expand. The 2nd floor family room could be reconverted into a 4th BR. The additional room adjoining the main BR can serve as an office or nursery. A new roof was completed in 2021. This home in the heart of Hyde Park and the golden rectangle of the University of Chicago has easy access to shopping, commuting, UC, parks, and Lake Michigan. The current owners rent parking directly across the street.
