Entire home/apt

This 6-bedroom, 3.5 bath home is full of Chicago charm. The house was built in 1896 as part of the original Edgewater development under JL Cochran. We bought the property in 2015 and with hard work and love, we have turned it into a wonderful home. We have added all the modern conveniences while retaining the original character of the home. In the 7 years we have lived here, we have had three amazing boys, so as you can imagine, the home is very special to us. This home is ideally located for visitors to explore all that Chicago has to offer. We are two blocks away from the Chicago lakefront with 16 miles of running and biking trails as well as parks and beaches. We are one block away from public transportation and the red-line. We are just steps away from the restaurants, shops and bars of Edgewater/Andersonville area. In addition, get on Lakeshore Drive and you are only a quick commute to the mag mile and downtown Chicago. Back at the house, you will find the interior just as special as the outside. We have updated the flooring with dark stained oak throughout. The dining room and living room are open up to each other. The dining table can extend to seat up to 12 and a large sectional in the living room is nice for gathering. There is an office space on this floor which offers additional seating and a pull out sofa bed should it be needed. The kitchen is fully updated and includes a large 8' island, gorgeous Carrara counter tops, Wood Mode cabinetry and SubZero/Wolf appliances. Every gadget and accessory has been provided so you will not need to worry about bringing/buying utensils to cook. Off the kitchen you have a large back deck with pergola that can seat up to 10 ppl for a dinner alefesco. The deck overlooks the back yard which is fully fenced in where your kids can play, shoot hoops or adults can relax on an additional sunken patio with a bbq grill. We back up to the train offering a uniquely Chicago experience and you will see it pass from the back yard. We have 6 bedrooms on the two additional floors. The second floor has 4 bedrooms. The master has a king size bed, closet space and full master bath. The additional bedrooms share a large bathroom with tub/shower. Of the three one has a bunk bed perfect for kids, two twins in our boys room and a full bed in the last bedroom. We also have a laundry room on this floor, making any laundry washing that needs to be done a breeze. The third floor has been converted into two bedrooms with a large shared bath. One bedroom has a king sized bed and the other has a sitting area with daybed and trundle. There is also a kitchenette on this floor with refrigerator, coffee maker and small microwave. Additionally, the home has free WiFi. On your arrival, you'll find the home stocked with a starter supply of the essentials so that you can unpack without stress. We have a no smoking, no parties and a no pet policy. We rent a minimum of 4 night stays during the summer.
