Welcome to 2651 N. Orchard St. #2

How close can one get to perfection? If "location, location" is your mantra, then park your car—you have arrived! This Lincoln Park one-level simplex is so centrally located, it's like the bulls-eye on a hotspot map. All, that this highly desirable neighborhood offers, radiates from this point in every direction. Virtually anything is within steps or no more than a mile away. But you might not know it from the tranquil one-way residential street or treetop view from your living room. This second floor 2 bedroom/2 bath is one of three units in a traditional brick & limestone condominium, surrounded by a wrought iron, gated fence. The entryway opens to a light and airy kitchen, living & dining room combination. Nearly 10 ft. ceilings and light oak floors continue that theme throughout the home. The living room features a handsome painted millwork & gas/wood burning fireplace, w/granite surround/hearth. Expansive floor to ceiling windows, w/Juliet balcony, overlooks sun-dappled trees. A clever dining nook offers a formal option in addition to convenient bar-style seating in the U-shaped kitchen. Dark bull-nosed granite countertops, and natural maple cabinets w/crown moldings, are a great complement to the suite of stainless steel appliances and Viking range. Continue down the hallway to find storage options including a Frigidaire W/D closet, separate mechanical closet, linen and extra storage closet. A second bedroom, w/wide slat blinds and organized closet has a corresponding hall bath featuring a glass enclosed polygonal shower and marble undermount vanity. The master suite features an extra deep, organized closet & a back entrance transom door. Sliding glass patio doors open to a lovely porch w/room for a grill and table-seating for 4 or more. The master bath features a jetted steeping tub & separate shower w/heavy glass door, double sink marble vanity, marble flooring and surround. Other notables include assigned garage parking, extra storage & alarm system with 2 keypads. A few of the many local offerings include shopping at the new Trader Joe's, the Century Mall, theatre at Victory Gardens, blues at Kingston Mines & concerts at DePaul University. Many local parks include Wiggly Field for dog-lovers. Transportation includes major bus arteries, the Red Line & easy access to Lake Shore Drive and I-90/94. Best of all, this address qualifies for automatic acceptance into the highly regarded, neighborhood K-12 school, Louisa May Alcott.
