Located in Chicago among Lincoln Park’s most expensive real estate, 1842 – 1844 N Burling is a warm and inviting home coveted for its park-like setting and pool on a full 24’ x 131’ side lot. Thoughtfully designed by premier landscape architect Scott Byron & Co, the mature and extravagantly planted garden offers privacy and tranquility enhanced with an old-world stone staircase ascending to a shaded terrace.
The custom-built limestone and brick Lincoln Park home is being offered for the first time by the original owners. Spanning 7,025 square feet, the many desirable features of 1844 N Burling include high ceilings on all floors, natural light, 4 fireplaces, a family room that opens to a terrace, 5 bedrooms, one with a covered terrace, a paneled library also with a private terrace, 5 bathrooms, a powder room, a state-of-the-art theatre, a game room, and a wine cellar. The elevator services the lower level through the fourth floor. In addition to the garden and three terraces, there is a penthouse roof with skyline views that can easily be decked.
Benefiting from the deep 131-foot lot, this Lincoln Park home has ample living and entertaining space. The spacious kitchen, featuring a convenient back staircase to the second floor bedrooms and laundry room, has abundant storage, a large granite island with seating, and professional-grade appliances: a Wolf oven, a Bosch dishwasher, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a butler’s pantry with a wet-bar, 2 Fisher & Paykel dishwashers, and a wine refrigerator. There is a second laundry hook-up on the lower level.
The gracious family room, contiguous to the kitchen, is enhanced with a limestone fireplace and French doors leading to a large terrace nestled in the trees and overlooking the garden which is accessed just a few steps below.
In addition to the 3-car front entry heated garage (no alley) there is additional parking on the side lot. When not in use, this area serves as a half basketball court.
