Property Description

Majestic, fully restored 1914 brick foursquare home on Historic Humboldt Boulevard, steps away from Armitage Restaurant Row, the 606, Palmer Square, and all that Logan Square has to offer. A truly unique home, with only 3 previous owners. 28' wide interiors, Corinthian column entry, original woodwork, pocket doors, stained glass, tile, and light fixtures throughout suggest the gracious living of the early 20th century. The kitchen, designed by O'Brien Harris, has custom cabinets, a Mercury Mosaics custom backsplash, Aria quartzite counters, a workstation sink with drainboard, Fisher-Paykal dual fuel range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, and Miele speed oven. The dining room is perfect for entertaining, with built-in buffets with Aria counters, additional window seat seating, and room for an extended dining table. An adjacent sunroom with tons of light and windows opens out onto the backyard. The custom landscaped yard has a custom deck for grilling, a blue slate patio, brick paver paths, a grassy area for playing, plenty of garden space, and a custom fire pit area. Cobblestone driveway and heated back garage and custom irrigation system complete the outdoor space. Extra-large living room, with a restored gas fireplace and built-ins, opens onto a dramatically covered front porch, with beautiful views of the boulevard green space. Plenty of room for seating and outdoor ceiling fans. Upstairs, 4 large bedrooms open onto a gracious stair landing with a double height-stained glass window. The primary bedroom has a private deck overlooking the backyard and a magnificent master bath with heated floors, custom glass shower surround, custom matching vanities, and a restored soaking tub. The basement great room has built-in storage, a wet bar, and plenty of space to hang out. There is a guest bedroom and a full bath perfect for guests. The basement also includes a large laundry area with a second range and a giant work room. Huge unfinished full-height attic space with dormers provides additional storage or could be converted into more living space. Restoration included a new Ludowici Roof Tile roof with a 75-year warranty, and all new electric, plumbing, and insulation. Windows are either fully restored or replaced. There is also a new sump system, a security system with cameras, and a full house backup generator to keep the house fully functional during power losses.
