Upscale, cozy, contemporary and conveniently located are just a few of the thoughts that’ll come to mind when taking in this 1,680 square foot, four-bedroom, two bath stucco and brick bungalow on a bustling Washington Park West neighborhood street, complete with a true garden level basement, detached garage with two parking spaces and two dedicated storage units. No need to seek out entertainment when you and your guests can sit on your quaint front porch and people watch while taking in the neighborhood sights at this home located just steps away from Café Europa, Spot Bar & Grill, Carmine\’s On Penn and Taki Sushi, among other popular eateries.
You’ll notice the meticulously landscaped front yard, the old-style cobblestone driveway, and the home’s eye-catching black trim. Once inside, notice the pristine new walnut flooring found throughout the main level. The light-filled Formal Living Room features crown molding, large windows, and upgraded light fixtures. Details, details, details abound in the updated Gourmet Kitchen, featuring a glistening chandelier suspended overhead, gorgeous marble countertops with coordinating backsplash, high-end stainless steel Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, glass-front custom cabinetry with a walnut finish inside and a washer and dryer cleverly hidden away. The Master Bedroom features a high-end ceiling fan and custom-built walnut storage cabinets and closets. The nearby Full Bath boasts pristine white tile work and high-end fixtures. A Secondary Room can work as another bedroom or a study, depending on your needs.
Back outside, step through the high-end black wrought iron side gates to the lushly landscaped, uber shady backyard, featuring a quaint paver patio, vibrant greenery, and an elevated balcony-like back porch. Notice the generous sprinkling of shade trees and the custom-built “tongue and groove” cedar privacy fence, in this backyard retreat that’s great for entertaining.
The basement, which features both interior and exterior access to the home, boasts an identical layout as the main level, including a second Kitchen, Two Bedrooms and a Full Bath, making the carpeted Lower Level ideal as a recreational space or guest/in-law suite (or just earn extra income renting out the space). Nearby schools include St. Francis De Sales Grade School, The Montessori School Of Washington Park and Steele Elementary School. Grocery shopping is close by at NOOCH, Vegan Market, and Albertsons. Easy access to flat terrain, excellent bike lanes and Hungarian Freedom Park and Alamo Placita Park are also a big draw.
