Enjoy your own hidden garden retreat in this phenomenal, JUST UPDATED 1,800+ SF, 3 bedroom, 2 full bath duplex down in the HEART of Lakeview in Alcott school district. This home checks all the boxes: updated kitchen and baths plus thoughtful and ULTRA-versatile floorplan, blending style, function and beautiful entertaining areas with comfortable day-to-day living. The main floor features sun-filled living room with exposed brick and wood-burning fireplace, leading to updated white kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, island with breakfast bar and plenty of room for dining area or family room seating. The spacious primary bedroom with exposed brick currently is on the first floor, along with just updated full bath, but with this highly configurable floorplan, use the upstairs bedroom as family room/office and turn the lower level into a palatial primary bedroom, complete with wood-burning fireplace and AMAZING GARDEN PATIO. Currently the lower level bedroom is used as the family room, but with more than enough space, configure as a bedroom AND an additional bonus room! A large second bedroom is tucked at the rear of the lower level, as well as the gorgeous second full bath with dual vanity and rain shower. Additional features: whole home freshly painted and bathrooms renovated, laundry room added, plus newer furnace and AC. Phenomenal location near EVERYTHING - get the best of both Lakeview and Lincoln Park! Close to Wrigley, the lakefront, TONS of locally-loved shops and restaurants, and Wellington CTA Brown/Purple line station. Pet friendly!
