1542 N WOOD Street, Unit 1F,
Prepare to be in awe by this true architectural stunner! Once a Victorian brownstone, this 2 bedroom | 2.1 bathroom duplex now combines the best of both worlds - modern updates without compromising character! Extraordinary features such as arched stained glass windows above the deep, wood-encased window sills, historically rich ceiling medallions, warm exposed brick, 11ft ceilings with beam accents, vintage french doors, distinctive lighting fixtures, and the remarkable floor-to-ceiling mantel surrounding the wood burning fireplace set this home apart from the rest! Tile flooring has thoughtfully been added to the front entry for a mud room feel, before the gleaming hardwood floors extend into the open concept living, dining, and kitchen areas, and throughout the main floor. A powder room & laundry are also included on this level, plus access to the garage parking out the back door! Being a front unit within a corner building means additional exposure allowing for more natural light than one might expect! Two bedrooms and two full bathrooms are located together on the lower level - the primary bedroom being ensuite with dual vanity, standing shower and separate tub, and the second bathroom being hallway accessible. Find the private patio off the front of the building, which can be reached from either level! Calling this intimate 4 unit building home means living in the center of Wicker Park and all that comes with it - walk to countless restaurants, cafes, boutiques, bars, parks, grocery stores - you name it! Only a 7 min walk to the CTA Damen Blue Line & 3 min drive to 90/94 access makes this an unbelievably convenient location! This home really is a rare gem that you do not want to miss!
