Welcome to 2221 N. Hoyne Ave. #1
Sometimes it's the pull of expansive single family living in a tranquil, tree-lined neighborhood. Sometimes, it's the tug of a walkable city life & all its drama or the convenience of a condo. Then again, you might find it all in one location. This Bucktown 3BR/3BA/office/FR duplex is so ideally located that it meets most everyone's needs; I-90 Expy, Blue Line and Metra are all under ½ mile away, as are dog parks, movies, Damen Ave. shopping district & schools including the Bucktown International Charter School. This 2546 sq ft home masterfully integrates sloping walls to optically widen that rare bonus of extra room length. The main level greets w/warm contemporary style from diagonal oak floors w/inset cherry trim, nickel-finish stair railings, art-deco floor grates, overall crown molding to the superb paint choices throughout. Dramatic 2-story windows w/wood blinds flood both levels with light. Painted millwork is featured in a marble surround WBGFP, visible throughout the LR/DR/Kit. The warm kitchen features crowned cherry wood finished cabinets, a suite of new SS LG and Bosch appliances, glass & stone subway tile backsplash, pendant lighting & thick U-shaped granite countertops & bar-style seating. Glass block windows extend the length of the hallway & give superb light. Both BRs feature overhead ceiling fans, organized closets & lush carpet. The hall bath features marble floor & tile surround, pedestal sink & shower with an outside linen closet. A rear entry security door provides access to one of three outdoor areas, as does a set of privacy glass French doors in the master suite. The master bath is appointed in marble from the floors & double vanity counters to the jetted tub & shower surrounds. Heavy glass panes form the shower on two sides, cleverly maximizing light. An impressive maple staircase leads to a carpeted lower level w/incredible storage. Here, a similar WBGFP is the focus & tall ceilings are again appointed w/crown molding. French doors lead to a charming, private, enclosed patio. A glass-paneled door encloses the office while another full tub-shower BA features marble throughout. Surprisingly, the remaining 3rd BR is quite large. The entire level is carpeted. A walk-in laundry room houses Samsung front load W/Ds w/extra storage & leads to a separate mechanical room complete with a new ejector pump. Other notables include updated, whole house security & surround speaker systems, a stunning roof top deck, assigned storage & garage.
