Welcome to 1749 N. Wells St. #421
Think you can't find loft-like style in one of Chicago's most desirable neighborhoods and also enjoy unobstructed city, lake and park views? Think again. This unique Old Town studio at Kennelly Square has merged its warehouse origins with all the perks of lakefront living, including 24-hour security and hi-rise amenities. Rarely will you find a studio, that feels like a 1-bedroom, with corner window exposures, affording front row, south and east views of Chicago's collective playground—Lincoln Park and Lake Michigan. Rarer still, are striking 9' ft. vaulted barrel, exposed brick ceilings offset by blond oak floors and a contemporary mix of blond wood cabinets and white appliances in an L-shaped kitchen. This bright, open home is large enough to accommodate a surprising amount of furniture and confronts storage needs with several well-organized wall closets with drawers, built-in window shelf cabinets and even a queen-sized Murphy bed with hidden ironing board. The tub/shower bath has a sliding glass door and white tile appointments. Other notables include mini-blind window coverings, track lighting and electric heat. The building offers door-person security, on-site management, rooftop pool, exercise room, laundry room, dry cleaners/receiving room, bike room, storage lockers and an indoor heated garage. Located in one of Chicago's thriving fine-dining and entertainment meccas, most everything you desire is within reach—Second City, Zanies Comedy Club, Green City Market, Treasure Island grocery, the Chicago History Museum, North Ave. beach, Lincoln Park Zoo, miles of running and bike paths and hundreds of restaurants, pubs and boutiques. Transportation options include 24-hr buses; Brown & Purple Line trains, Lake Shore Drive and easy access to I-90/94. First-time homebuyers, investors, and even those seeing a pied-a-terre, will all appreciate this unique opportunity to grab an ideal location without foregoing style, amenities or jaw-dropping views.
