Magic lives here! The artistry of this meticulously handcrafted home is an abandon of color, imagination & pure fun. It's a whimsical re-imagining of one of the 40 homes of Chicago's first residential landmark district: Alta Vista Terrace. A years-long, down-to-the-studs renovation is now a playful retreat for an art, history, architecture loving Cubs fan. Spectacularly detailed thru-out featuring hand-painted wall & ceiling murals; expansive hand-laid mosaics; jewel-toned art glass; a 250-yr old Moroccan balcony; an elegant custom stair rail; La Cornue range & so much more. No detail overlooked: from the light sconce made from a vintage clarinet to the elegantly painted Moorish keyhole entry to the master bath. The lofted second floor of the home is a large master suite. There's a guest room/bath in lower level. Rear patio overlooks beautiful Kelly Park. This inspiring home overflows with joy & abundance. Free pkg in Cubs' Camry Lot. Featured in Crains.
