You know that one house in the neighborhood where people stop to admire and even take pictures? Well, this is that one in Andersonville! This elegant iconic greystone sits on a large beautifully landscaped 50′ X 125′ lot with a bubbling fountain out front. An extensive restoration and gut rehab were completed in 2019. The exterior was restored to its full historic beauty, and the inside now boasts the latest trends in decorating along with zoned HVAC, new electric and copper plumbing, 2 laundry rooms, and 3 wood-burning fireplaces – 2 inside and 1 outside. This pristine single-family home was improved with a new roof and high efficiency windows. Plus, you’ll love the surround sound speakers inside and out, wireless security system with window and door contacts, and wireless internet boosters throughout the home that make it easy to work, zoom, or surf from every room in the house! The open floor plan flows from the light-filled living room to the dining room that overlooks the colorful gardens in the side yard.

The adjacent true chef’s kitchen features abundant cabinets, a Wolf stainless side-by-side double oven, Best range hood, Sub Zero fridge, Bosch dishwasher, white Carrera quartz counter tops and an enormous island. Plus, there’s even a large pantry closet. Designed to bring the outdoors in, the entire back wall on this 1st floor is glass with a massive sliding door to link the family room inside with the deck outside where there’s a large dining area and huge brick fireplace next to the double-decker deck. Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms including a Jack & Jill bath between 2 of them. Enjoy heated floors in the spa-like bathroom of the primary suite with its spacious bedroom, 2 walk-in closets and big private deck. The 2nd floor laundry makes life easier. And at the top of the stairs, don’t miss the mediation area with French doors opening to an unfinished deck above the front door. The lower level is only 4′ below grade with 9′ ceilings, radiant-heated floors throughout, and a spacious rec room/second family room (big enough for a pool table).

Two additional bedrooms (one currently used as a gym) share a full bath with a luxurious steam shower! Finally, a wet bar, wine cooler, more storage, and another full laundry room round out this level. Outside, three exterior parking spaces sit next to a new 2-car garage, and the backyard is fully enclosed with a privacy fence. Berwyn is a quiet tree-lined street that is only 1/2 block east of the best of Andersonville’s entertainment, boutiques, restaurants, and cafes. The Clark St. bus will take you all the way downtown, or a brief walk east through Historic Lakewood Balmoral brings you to the Red Line El and express buses. Just beyond is north Lincoln Park, the Lake, bike path and beach. You just can’t beat the location and the luxury of this sophisticated urban oasis in a wonderful neighborhood of friends.
