This elegant brick home is located in a RARELY AVAILABLE prime University of Chicago campus location. With almost 6000 square feet of fully usable space, the design of the home, with its large rooms, high ceilings, and beautiful vintage details is perfect for entertaining and modern family life. Features include a gracious entryway and an impressive welcoming entrance hall with fireplace. A grand formal living room has as its centerpiece a beautiful wood-burning brick fireplace, and the adjacent library nook features built-in bookcases. Both rooms have elegant pocket doors, allowing for flexibility of use. The entrance hall also leads into a beautiful formal dining room with original built-in cabinetry, silk wallpaper and chandelier. A sunny family room overlooks a private backyard with mature plantings and is adjacent to the large eat-in kitchen and butler's pantry with extensive storage. Heading up the grand staircase you will find four spacious bedrooms, three full (two en suite) and one half (en suite) baths, a large linen closet and a convenient laundry chute. The third floor includes two additional bedrooms and one full bath. Each bedroom features a second adjacent room which can be used as an office, study or playroom. The enormous recreation room on this level has been used to host large gatherings (100+ people) for academic lectures as well as a family game and exercise room, complete with a ballet bar! The possibilities for this space are endless. This home has been lovingly maintained by the same family for over 40 years and has a newer furnace, A/C and roof. The large basement is open and clean with high ceilings and includes a half bath, laundry and ample storage. There is a lovely backyard oasis where you will find pear and apple trees as well as beautiful hibiscus, roses and a 2-car garage. All just steps away from the University campus and Laboratory Schools.
