Property Description

Wonderful opportunity to own in the historical Seminary Townhouse Association, a "secret" oasis in Lincoln Park. The heart of this 1889 row-house community is located on a block-long private street, between Fullerton and Belden. This urban oasis offers its owners a tremendous sense of community, complete with ice-skating in the winter and bicycle parades around "the Green". Massive south-facing house has 6 bedrooms, 5 fireplaces, 2.5 baths and double staircases. Lovingly preserved by the same owner for 45 years. Beautiful vintage details throughout; intricate crown molding, atop the 11-foot high ceilings, hardwood floors, decorative banisters, period appropriate lighting, original built-ins and gorgeous mantles surrounding the fireplaces. Large kitchen has hand crafted oak cabinets, maple floors, and an expansive walk-in butler's pantry. Also, there's a powder room on the main level of the home. Second floor features a huge primary bedroom with a wood-burning fireplace. An adjacent second bedroom can be used as a den which is how it is currently shown. Updated bath, plus there is a nice size third bedroom and the fourth former bedroom is currently a laundry room. As you ascend to the third floor, sun fills the stairwell from a large skylight. On the third floor, you will find 3 more bedrooms and a full bath. One of the three bedrooms on this level is so large that it could be a second primary bedroom. Lower level is unfinished, providing copious amounts of storage or conversion to additional living space. Back yard, 2 car parking plus guest parking complete the offering. Fantastic location. Steps to the lakefront, zoo, and an amazing selection of schools. Bring your designer to make this piece of history your own!
