Have you been stuck at home and realize you need more space? Maybe a real home office, an additional living space, or a GIANT yard for plenty of outdoor time while social distancing….look no further! This classic Greystone has been converted to a single family home and is located on arguably the best block of Old Irving Park! This home sits on a 171’ x 50’ lot and was lovingly renovated from a 3-flat in 1999/2000 to its current floorplan. Enter the home by walking up the original limestone steps and thru a double enclosed entrance finished with charming hexagon wood tiles and original mosaic tile floors. Walk thru the original oak and glass door to the main level and be greeted by the built-in foyer cabinet, a ton of original woodwork and hardwood floors throughout the main level. The front living room and the family room are adjoined as a double parlor set up and includes a charming bay window with original stained glass. As you walk back thru the main level, you will pass by the 5th bedroom, office, and a powder room on your way to the open kitchen in the rear of the home. The updated kitchen features Brookhaven maple cabinets, granite counters, marble tile backsplash, all newer kitchen appliances (~2017), over & under cabinet lighting, and an island with a breakfast bar. The formal dining room is open to the kitchen, features original ceiling beams and a built-in glass front hutch, and leads into the sun room with access to the very large deck. The enclosed rear stairs accessed from the kitchen are set up as a very functional mudroom and pantry space. The second floor has 4 bedrooms, including a primary suite, and an open den. The primary suite has it’s own full bathroom with a separate tub and large shower, a walk-in closet, and a terrific study/studio. The bedroom has original ceiling beams, a built-in hutch that functions as a dresser, and 3 original oak and glass doors that fold open to connect the primary bedroom with the study/studio space. Designed as an artist’s studio, this bright and sunny room features a sink, exhaust fan, 4 skylights, 7 windows, & 2 french doors to a private deck! The sink, intended for washing paint brushes, could also work well as a charming en-suite coffee station…why walk all the way downstairs for your morning coffee?! Also on the 2nd level is the open den space with a skylight at the top of the stairs and 2 built-in bookcases. The 2nd bedroom is huge and has it’s own 9x9 walk in closet, the 3rd bedroom features double doors that open to the den space and a stained glass window, and there is 4th bedroom complete with a mural! The spacious hall bath that serves these bedrooms features a double vanity and a built-in cabinet/linen storage. Enjoy the large and open finished lower level, currently used as a big recreation room and an open bedroom area.
