    Description

    Beautifully updated with modern amenities, this gracious 4 bedroom, 2.1 bath home is so exceptional that it has been used to shoot many commercials. Special features include the spacious entry foyer, hardwood floors throughout, 11 ft. ceilings, huge windows, gas fireplace with Louis Sullivan mantle, and wrap around front porch. Open living room and family room provide a space for fun and relaxation, while the grand dining room can host festive family gatherings. The lovely, remodeled kitchen checks off everything on your wish list and then some: center island, huge eating area plus wall of custom cabinets with built-in desk . There's also a huge, inviting screened porch overlooking large, fenced backyard and deck that will soon become your favorite spot to spend time. Second floor boasts 4 generous bedrooms incuding a master with remodeled ensuite bath, 2nd floor office/laundry room, and another gorgeous full bath. Now for something really special - there is a bonus room above the garage that was used by Hemingway's mother, Grace Hall, as an art studio from 1936 -1951. Expansive covered front porch, sweeping front lawn, sprawling backyard, and deck make this the perfect home both inside and out. Located on the "street of dreams" just blocks from the Metra, Keystone Park, and Blue Ribbon award winning schools. Sought after for the quick commute to O'hare, Midway, the West Loop and the Fulton Market District. Don't miss out on this unique home.
