41 E Elm Street
Striking in character and highly desirable in terms of location, 41 E. Elm St. is a historic 4 bed/5.5 bath, single-family home that balances timeless charm with a transitional interior. Located on the best stretch of Elm Street in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, just steps from the lakefront, this 4000 square foot Gothic Revival home by architect Daniel Burnham has a commanding street presence thanks to its red brick facade, oversize windows and sloping, slate roof. Inside, the home has been beautifully renovated from end to end with first-class finishes and inheritable design moments, beginning with an elegant foyer with black-and-white tile and a double coat closet. The main level presents a large, open-concept living/dining room with wide-plank hardwood floors, high ceilings, modern crown molding and a limestone fireplace. Past a pretty powder room, the dining room links to a gorgeous, eat-in chef's kitchen with quartz countertops, custom white cabinetry, a herringbone backsplash, SubZero/Bertazzoni/Miele appliances, an island with counter seating and a wall of built-ins for dishware display and bonus storage. Here, the kitchen connects to a private back deck for grilling and alfresco dining. Accessed via a beautifully restored, spindle staircase, the second level presents two, large bedroom suites and an upstairs laundry room. The spacious primary bedroom lives at the front of the house and features treetop views, a second fireplace, a custom walk-in closet and a designer en-suite bath with dual vanity, elegant fixtures and a glass, walk-in shower. The third floor is home to two, additional en-suite bedrooms with walk-in closets, and affords access to a new semi-covered roof deck with Trex decking. Most recently renovated, this home's garden level features a media/family room with built-in wet bar and a fireplace, a temperature-controlled wine room, a WFH office, a second laundry room and another exterior access point. Additional details and amenities include custom millwork and closets throughout, new blinds throughout, 3 total fireplaces, abundant storage, professional landscaping, and fresh paint inside and out. Recent infrastructure updates include a new roof and roof deck, reconstructed chimneys and tuck-pointing, a new septic backflow system, and a new parkway iron fence. (Purchase or leased parking is available in the area.) Steps from the Mag Mile and Oak Street beach, not to mention located within the city's preeminent school district, 41 E. Elm St. is turnkey luxury that is sure to turn heads.
