Beautiful Vintage Rehab: 2023 W. Crystal

2023 W Crystal Street, Chicago, IL 60622

2023 Crystal is elegance defined, with timeless and classic white brick gracing a wonderful, tree-lined street in the heart of bustling Wicker Park. Entering the front gate, you'll be captured by the sophisticated slate courtyard and architectural staircase, added in 2018, which lead to the stately double entry. This fully rehabbed home, c. 1890, is a true show-stopper. Character blends seamlessly with quality as every detail has been curated for the most discerning eye. With 10' ceilings and the graceful lines of a bygone era, this handsome home exudes warmth and style. The main level hosts a stylish and inviting living room with wood-burning fireplace, capacious dining room, and a knock-out kitchen that opens to the "heart of the home" family room. The sweetest of powder rooms is tucked away and adjacent to the pantry closet. 2023 is an entertainer's delight with multiple gathering spaces, including the newly-faced rear deck and the lovely grassy yard, trimmed with new landscaping. The garage-new in 2017-is equipped with attic storage, and effortlessly accommodates 2 cars and all the essential accoutrements of family life. The second floor of the home boasts 3 gracious bedrooms, 2 full baths with exquisite finishes, full-sized stacked laundry and linen closets. The primary bedroom-at the front of the home-is adorned with moldings, a cathedral ceiling, and a fully renovated, discerningly appointed bathroom. Bedrooms 2 + 3 are each very generous in size and can fit queen-sized beds and room to grow. The lower level completes the home. Double-parlor living rooms offers a hang-out space as well as a home gym or play area. The entire back portion of the lower level is the 4th bedroom, currently working double-duty as bedroom and home office. A full bathroom was added in 2017, creating the perfect guest suite. A second full-sized laundry is found adjacent to the bathroom. This dazzling home has been exceptionally maintained and improved, most recently as follows: 3.5 new designer bathrooms, stunning new designer kitchen, new windows and new furnace completed just prior to 2016 purchase. Exterior painting, slate courtyard, front staircase, rear landscape and hardscape, roof, AC, lower-level full bathroom (no bath previously), full garage (including pad) and insulation to the 3rd floor have been some of the most recent updates. Bespoke touches across all 3 floors of living make 2023 Crystal an impressive and impeccable stand-out. 2019 taxes: 11,786
