Property Description

Don't miss this opportunity to purchase this desirable 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath E-1 Townhome, designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei around 1960. This home is in the Ray School District. These townhouses are highly desirable for their ease of maintenance, with 8 rooms on three levels that are above ground. The main level (2nd) has a sizable living room, dining room and a mid-century modern kitchen in remarkable condition. There are two balconies, located off the dining room and living room. The upper level (3rd) has a skylight, a sizable primary bedroom suite with full bath, two additional bedrooms and another full bath in the hallway. There is plenty of storage, including a large storage room tucked between the 2nd and 3rd floors. The lower level offers a fourth bedroom, laundry/utility room, half bath and a large family room that opens onto the back yard, fully enclosed with an attractive cedar privacy fence. One parking space in the back is assigned and there is a hook up for an electric car. This home has been a parsonage of a church for a number of years, so it is being sold "as is" and taxes are not listed as they were Exempt. It has been freshened up with new paint and the carpeting was removed to reveal the attractive hardwood floors on two levels. Tuckpointing was done in 2012 and lintels replaced in 2015. The age of the mechanicals and roof are not known, but the roof is checked yearly. The location is wonderful - across from Nichols Park and the HP Neighborhood Club and close to schools, shopping, dining, the Metra and the University of Chicago.
