Welcome to 936 W. Margate Terrace #1W

There's a little thing in Chicago called a melting pot and Margate Park is one of them. Live, work and play where it all comes together. There is just nothing comparable to this home in the neighborhood! Directly off the lakefront, this enormous 2700 sqft duplex down with attached garage is tucked away down a secluded byway. One of 6 condos, this unique home, w/ an extra-wide floorplan, has 3 exposures & a front row seat to the newly expanded Buttercup Park. It is landscaped & includes water features & charming vintage streetlamps. View this idyllic, tree-lined setting from the LR/DR's 2-story windows, seemingly made for your eyes alone. There are rich, dark oak floors & an expansive exposed brick wall running the length of the entire unit. Keeping it clean & simple, the kitchen features white retro cabinetry-S/S appliances-laminate & butcher block countertops & terra cotta tile flooring. The U-shaped design creates a breakfast bar counter & natural division from the eat-in area. A full hall bathroom features a tub/shower in natural stone, blue tile & a Corian integrated vanity top. The master suite offers additional mirrored closet storage outside the bathroom. A soothing mix of white subway tile, marble flooring, nickel fittings & furniture-style vanity complement the double shower, complete w/ handheld sprayer & cubby storage. Both bedrooms are unimaginably large & provide optimum storage & organization. Notably, the master BR features handsome oak, double panel closet doors & room for a sofa & then some. Taking the stairway downstairs, put your plants on a tiled floor. The lower level & stairway share light from 2-story windows. At grade level, they open to a private terrace retreat, invisible from the street. The wide-open, carpeted family room is adaptable to many configurations. A wood-burning fireplace, built-in counters & shelving suggest various entertainment, conversation, office/study options. Storage is maximized throughout. A half bath, laundry & mechanicals complete this level. Getting around is a breeze-the Red & Purple lines- busses & Lake Shore Dr make it easy. Foster Ave Beach features beach volleyball-basketball & bike rentals. Namesake Margate Park boasts interactive playgrounds, a dog-sanctioned park & fitness center offering kickboxing, yoga & Pilates classes. The world is your oyster or perhaps your spring roll-choose from myriad eateries around the globe including Asian-Indian-Mexican & African cuisine.
