538 West Deming Place

Behind this stunning 1883 facade, is a meticulously 2019 gut-renovated 7BD/ 5.2BA greystone, complete with an elevator to every level and lower level with movie theater, secondary kitchen and ensuite 7th bedroom. Sitting on a 27' x 190' lot, no expense was spared creating a modern, functional and beautiful living space. Upon entering, you are immediately greeted with regal sophistication. The 12 ft high ceilings emphasize the crown mouldings, decorative frame mouldings, and high baseboards added as an homage to the original vintage charm. The imported vintage fireplace surround with marble hearth in the sitting room further inserts this charm back into the home. The enormous chef's kitchen boasts 2 1/2" Calcutta Gold marble countertops with cantilevered island, 6-burner Wolf range with griddle, custom zinc and brass range hood, integrated SubZero refrigerator and integrated Bosch dishwasher, Wolf double ovens and custom wood cabinetry. Enjoy a beautiful wet bar adjacent to the large eat-in kitchen banquette and huge walk-in pantry- perfect for everyday living. The family room, abutting the kitchen, has a cozy fireplace with imported vintage marble and cast iron mantle and surround- perfect for Chicago winters. A rear NanaWall fills the space with sunlight, providing a seamless extension of the family room into the large yard and detached 2.5 car brick garage. A jaw-dropping custom-designed staircase leads you to the second floor. The primary suite oozes luxury with a massive walk-in closet, spa-like primary bath, and a beautiful primary bedroom with fireplace, custom draperies, separate sitting area and outdoor deck. The primary bath boasts radiant heated floors, steam walk-in shower with rain showerhead, Ann Sacks tile and Artistic tile throughout and a gorgeous Bain Ultra soaking tub with a crystal light installation hovering above. 2 additional bedrooms and full bath complete the second floor. As you reach the top floor you are struck by a large skylight illuminating the stairwell and third level. Enjoy 3 full bedrooms and 2 full baths, one of which is ensuite. The 5th bedroom is currently functioning as an office with a deck overlooking the beautiful backyard. Feel free to take the elevator down to the lower level to enjoy radiant heated floors, a pre-wired media room, bar, family room and separate suite with ensuite bath and second kitchenette (not pictured). All 4 floors pre-wired for sound. This is truly a must-see East Lincoln Park home with the highest level of finish. The less obvious improvements were extensive: Fully restoring the limestone facade and masonry, new copper roof detailing, new maintenance free slate composite roofs, new windows installed throughout, French drains installed in the front and backyards for aesthetics, new gas and sewer lines, new copper water line and added a backup power generator. The original stained glass was carefully restored to retain the historic aesthetic and significance. 3rd floor is built to be fully ADA accessible including reinforcement behind the shower tile to add grab bars.
