From the moment you step into this sprawling Kenwood apartment you know that you are somewhere special. Beautifully renovated by the current owners in 2017-2018, this home is move-in ready! Enter the apartment into a gracious, spacious foyer (14'x13') which is the center of the home. Immediately to the right is a guest bedroom with en-suite half bath, perfect for overnight guests or a home office. It has a walk-in closet and a lovely balcony overlooking the treetops looking down Kenwood Avenue. This is a very serene space and nicely removed from the rest of the bedrooms. Also to the right of the foyer is the massive living room with a bank of windows that bring in southern light and more treetop views. The room has beamed ceilings, period light fixtures and original tile surrounding the decorative fireplace with bookshelves on either side. Moving into the primary bedroom you have 1 walk-in closet and one other closet. Here you will find another balcony with the same tranquil views as the guest bedroom balcony. Through a corridor leading to the en-suite bath are storage shelves and drawers. Stunning porcelain floor tiles and a marble-topped vanity. Huge walk-in shower with a bench. To the left of the primary bedroom is a separate wing with 2 more bedrooms that share a full bath. The main foyer also leads you into the huge dining room with plenty of windows that make this a very bright and cheerful room. Between the dining room and kitchen is a butler's pantry with a wet bar on one side and marble backsplash. The kitchen is spectacular, with more of the same marble backsplash, slate floors, SS appliances, quartz counter tops and upper cabinets that reach to the ceiling. All cabinets and drawers are soft-close. Next to the breakfast bench and table (included in the sale) is a pantry cabinet with pull-out drawers. To the right of the breakfast table is a cozy, comfy family room...a great space to hang out and relax. The laundry room is off the family room and there is enough space in there to make another pantry if more storage is needed. All of the original hardwood floors throughout have been sanded and beautifully stained. Radiator covers for all radiators. Smooth plaster walls. All the closets are outfitted with organizers. There is so much to mention in this gracious apartment I almost forgot about the incredible backyard space and massive storage room in the basement. Not only is there a koi pond in the shared yard but also a complete outdoor kitchen for the use of the condo owners. Pizza oven, huge grill, work table. This home is truly an oasis in the city, within walking distance to the Metra trains and the CTA bus lines. The 47th Street Jean Baptiste Point DuSable Lake Shore Drive access is just around the corner. 3 blocks to Whole Foods, 7 blocks to Trader Joe's and in-between you have access to all the shops and restaurants that Hyde Park/Kenwood has to offer. You won't be disappointed!
