Its not very often that a two-flat like this, in such superior condition, comes along, and the convenient Austin neighborhood location only makes it that much better! Discover three stories of refreshingly rehabbed living space with top-notch care evident throughout in this Chicago property. There are two identical apartments, the only difference being that the first level has access to a full finished basement. Otherwise, these two-bedroom, one-bath units are mirrors of each other, and what beautiful spaces they are! You may choose to live in one and rent out the other for extra income. Your landlord duties should be minimal, as these units have been continually updated and expertly maintained. The set-up also boasts the soundproof nature and privacy of solid brick construction. This immaculate two-flat is a double value for the buyer who acts fast! Step inside, and youll be struck by the cheery ambiance of classically designed living spaces. A foyer with gleaming hardwood floors is your first welcoming sight. The beautiful floors continue into the gracious spacious living room, which features lovely custom window treatments. Light floods the large living room, thanks to a picture window that provides pleasant street views. A lovely arched entry connects living and dining rooms, and is one of many architectural surprises youll discover. Off the kitchen, the dining room recalls an era when entertainment was done with polished elegance. A custom chandelier crowns the formal space. In the kitchen, new wood cabinets and stainless appliances are showcased with style. Plus, a unique eat-in breakfast nook simply delights! These and all rooms have been recently upgraded with new electric, drywall and fresh neutral paint.
Hardwood floors and custom window treatments are featured in both bedrooms, and one of the rooms also has a ceiling fan in place. The ceramic tiled bath is a smart example of compact convenience, with its shower/tub combo and a glass block window. Downstairs in the full basement, there is a half bath near the laundry, which comes complete with its washer and dryer. Plenty of storage space can be found in the basement, but it is the finished rec room that steals the show with its generous space for get-togethers. At the rear of each apartment, an enclosed back porch allows you to bring the outside in. The front exterior of the home is charming with a beautiful front porch overlooking a lawn, trees, bushes and flowers. Nice and large, the backyard accommodates both a concrete patio and a wood deck. A chain link fence surrounds it all, including the two-car garage with alley access. Although both apartments sport modern updates, the building still exudes the character of quality-built homes of yesterday. A setting in one of Chicagolands classic neighborhoods enhances that feeling.
