One-of-a-kind home on a one-of-a-kind block. This meticulously handcrafted home is pure fun & could be a sought after Airbnb/seasonal rental property. Fee simple with no association, this is 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 art, history, architecture or Cubs fans. Spectacularly detailed throughout featuring hand-painted wall & ceiling murals; expansive hand-laid mosaics; jewel-tone art glass - new and antique; a 250-yr old Moroccan balcony; an elegant custom stair rail; La Cornue range & so much more. No detail overlooked: from the wall-sconce crafted using a vintage clarinet to the elegantly painted Moorish keyhole entry opening to the master bath. The lofted second floor of the home is now a master suite. Guest room/bath in lower level. Rear patio overlooks beautiful Kelly Park. This inspiring home overflows with joy & abundance. Perfect for April-September rental to Cubs fans; and year-round to Chicago tourists who would LOVE the chance to stay on Alta Vista Terrace and enjoy a truly one-of-a-kind Chicago vacation experience. Steps to Wrigley and Red Line.
