2431 West Leland , Chicago, IL 60625
A building like this comes along once in a lifetime...literally! Old-world charm meets modern amenities. This original family-owned building is in exceptional condition and features a full addition which was added in 2002 including expanding the basement. The new rear interior rear staircase is now sitting on a foundation and is insulated heated and cooled so making that duplex up will be that much easier. The 1st floor was duplexed down and features 9' ceilings. Seller installed all the rough-in plumbing for kitchenette or bar in the lower level so it's ready to go (possible in-law unit with the new ADU program). Loads of extra storage were added and a lower level workshop tops it off. Overhead sewers, drain tiles and everything at that time was new including electric and plumbing throughout. Windsor thermal windows with a wood finish on the interior were installed. Attention to detail honoring original features took place in the owner's unit and it shows. The 1st floor is a 3 bedroom 2 bath duplex down with tall ceilings, in-unit laundry, and eat-in kitchen. The tablespace in the kitchen opens to the deck and yard with a newer wide 2.5 car garage with a yard side roll-up. Custom closet organizers in the first-floor bedroom. The top floor is an updated 2 bedroom plus den (due to addition) with room to add in-unit laundry. Bonus, there is a full unfinished attic which is ripe to create a duplex up. Both high-efficiency individual water tanks and 1st floor HVAC are brand new. Waterproofing, overhead sewers, and ejector pumps are all installed and the property is in excellent condition. Custom siding graces the exterior honoring the original design. What a wonderful location, walk to the heart of Lincoln Square and all this wonderful neighborhood has to offer. Brown Line is steps away as well as Wells Park and award-winning Waters School. This property was originally built in 1912 by the seller's great-great-grandfather then rebuilt in 2002 by the granddaughter with exceptional attention to original details. Are you the second owner of this 100+-year-old updated property?
