Wow! This charming block includes a variety of unique Chicago architecture styles, a lovely place to live with great schools and nearby parks. As you enter the cozy foyer thru the arched solid wood door you will be enveloped in the charm of this Chicago oasis. This is a 1 owner home. Hardwood floors (under carpet) in living room and dining room...also in both bedrooms on first floor. Full bath has been updated with beautiful ceramic surround and a lovely vanity keeping the integrity and charm of this 50's brick bungalow. Lath and plaster showcase the arched doorways and room divides. Kitchen is ample with eat in space, hard surface counters and meticulously kept original metal cabinets. Built in dishwasher, for convenience during the update was added as was a microwave. Original electric oven and range still occupies the kitchen for its charm and nostalgia, (stove alone sold as is) Ceramic flooring in kitchen and bath provide easy cleaning and durability. This home was built to last and you feel the solid construction. An addition of a family room off the back of the home with windows for cross breeze is perfect for relaxing less formally. 2nd floor has a carpeted sitting room or living room, another bedroom and a sewing room which has pipes in place to be a kitchenette a wonderful option for an in-law arrangement. This 2nd floor has another 1/2 bath. Notice that the original plans for the home switched the stairway to the back to accommodate a simpler access to the 2nd floor what foresight!!! A walk in attic complete with a cedar closet is a plus for storage! Downstairs you'll find full finished basement where laundry is located and out of the way. this space expands entertaining and living options along with a full bath. A walkout basement adds convenience. New roof is in the works, ( call LA for extra details) tuckpointing, furnace and air-conditioning and a brand new hot water heater in 2021. The electric is on circuit breakers. This home was filled with love by one family and shows in its care. Close to shopping and transportation and highways. Hurry, this gem won't last!This is a must see!

It’s a well kept, friendly, and quiet area. I live on Kolmar and there’s a new strip of stores coming in such as Five Below, Ross, Target, and an LA Fitness gym, so I’m absolutely thrilled the neighborhood is becoming even more walkable!! "
