Welcome to your urban sanctuary in the heart of vibrant Bucktown. If you're tired of cookie-cutter and have been holding out for something special, look no further; this is it! Tucked back in a small gated community, alongside only a few other units, this top-floor triplex with a private entrance and large secluded outdoor space promises a truly unique living experience. As you step into your private entrance, you'll be greeted by a substantial mudroom area, where you can effortlessly drop everything from the day and store a bike with ease for coming and going. Upon entering the unit at the top of your stairwell, you'll immediately notice high ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors, and natural light pouring in. The open-concept living space features a modern kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, a stylish backsplash, and an ideal breakfast bar, which sits adjacent to a sunny living room with plenty of space for plush seating, as well as a dining nook. Off of this main room sits an 10'x9' completely private balcony, which serves as a true extension of your living space, where you can look forward to savoring early morning coffees or unwinding with an evening glass of wine, curled up in a cozy blanket. The thoughtfully designed split floorplan offers one bedroom up, complete with a convenient office nook, and a second bedroom on the lower level; a layout that strikes a perfect balance of accessibility and privacy. Your spacious bathroom features updated light fixtures, a modern vanity, and fresh paint. Additional upgrades include new fans and lighting, custom top-down bottom-up blackout shades throughout, built-in closet organizers, a new (2023) hot water heater, and more. In addition to the unit features, you'll enjoy an expansive shared yard, complete with a turf-covered lounge space, perfect for entertaining or playing with your pup. There is also storage galore and free laundry in the building (you may also add laundry in-unit if desired). Ample street parking is available. This exceptional location is just steps from all the amenities Bucktown has to offer including Mindy's Bakery, Small Cheval, Coast Sushi, Lottie's Pub, the 606 trail, Midtown Athletic Club, the blue line and metra, and quick access to the highway.
