There is nothing quite like living right across from Lincoln Park & the conservatory in the most sought-after location in the city. In a place of many incredible neighborhoods, this location is magical and without parallel. And the Shakespeare, with its historic Prairie School style of architecture designed in 1910 by Dwight Perkins with spacious & beautiful floorplans is the very best place to call such a superb location home. Inside, enjoy the best of vintage co-op living while appreciating current updates. As you enter this 2nd floor home, you will be greeted by the formal foyer entry that opens to an outstanding living room bathed in natural light from its oversized picture windows. A wood-burning fireplace anchors the room, while a wall of built-in bookshelves provide additional architectural details. The formal dining room is ideal for entertaining elegant dinner gatherings, but also large enough to use as a combination dining and additional family room as well. The updated kitchen offers maple cabinetry with granite counters, large center painted island, incredible countertop work space, professional-grade stainless appliances, and an ideal eat-in table space complete with banquette seating. A charming sunroom area off the living room provides a beautiful area to relax and read a book, enjoy a morning coffee or evening wine, use for a home office or homework area, or utilize as an exercise room. Like many well-designed earlier architecture homes, the floorplan is divided in to front living spaces while keeping the sleeping rooms more private in another area of the home. In this floorplan, four bedrooms open off a hallway that can be left open to the rest of the home, or closed off with sliding glass doors. All the bedrooms are well proportioned, with three of the four bedrooms being able to accommodate large bedroom furniture. Both the hall bathroom and the primary bathroom (with a jack and jill entry to the 2nd bedroom) are updated with natural stone finishes and beautiful vanities. Hardwood floors flow throughout the home, while crown moldings add an elegant finish. The home also features in-unit side by side washer and dryer with folding counter, space-pac central air, a huge additional 15' x 10' storage room in a spacious basement, and an on-site parking space. This stunning co-op building not only includes the historic and beautiful architectural details visible to everyone that walks by, but also offers a gracious front lawn area and two large private outdoor landscaped courtyard areas complete with several sitting sections, tables, lounge chairs, communal grills and grass areas. There is an on-site engineer that meticulously cares for the building, and keeps it perfectly maintained. Extremely reasonable assessments include heat, gas, management & maintenance, and parking. 75% financing is allowed & pets are welcome. Located in the Lincoln School district, you can easily walk to it every day, as well as numerous private schools (including Parker & Latin immediately to the south) & Lincoln Park Preschool. Live directly across from the neighborhood's namesake park, the conservatory, zoo, & playlots, while also enjoying a simple stroll to the best restaurants available. Without a doubt, the most enviable location in the city can be enjoyed right outside your door from this historic and gracious Shakespeare home.
