THIS HONEY IS AN URBANIST'S DREAM!!!! “The Duchess” is giving an audience for the first time in 34 years! Commanding a premium view down Magnolia Avenue, this grande dame is dignified, well placed, and like all great ladies, possesses hidden charms. Read on to learn why this property is not to be missed!!! ************************* Located in super desirable Magnolia/Edgewater Glen, this true Chicago 3 flat with a raised basement is a BONANZA of opportunity. Totaling 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, the apartments are (1) 3 bedroom/1 bath and (2) 2 bedroom/1 bath with another bathroom in the unfinished basement. (3rd bedroom possible in 3rd floor unit.) Each apartment features a separate, formal dining room with original sideboards with leaded glass doors. Original woodwork, crown moldings, and wood floors throughout all apartments. Two apartments feature decorative fireplaces with original Craftsman tile facings and flanking bookcases. Two very sunny south facing sunrooms keep the winter blues away! Main bedrooms can fit king and queen size beds. Huge, 8’-0” x 18’-0” fully rebuilt open rear porch has plenty of room for barbecuing and summer entertaining. The rear stairs even have space for a dumbwaiter! (Help with the groceries? Yes Please!) Wide lot with open rear yard is ready for a new three car garage. Radiator heat, window AC units. Steps to Thorndale L stop, Whole Foods, Aldi, Walgreens, Osterman Beach, Lake Michigan and Andersonville. ***************** “Hidden Charms” you ask? Yes! Unlike most properties in this area, this lady has room to grow and tons of added value to be realized. While a fourth unit can be added “as of right”, this property is ALSO located in the RT-4 zoning district; one of 5 pilot areas in Chicago where accessory dwelling units (ADUs) are permitted. SO…. ***************** Are you an investor? How about duplexing the first-floor unit to the basement (existing 7’-7” ceiling height as is!) and build a three-car garage with a coach house above? Maximum income potential! ***************** Are you looking for a terrific home with income? Consider duplexing upper units into a wonderful 2000+ square foot home, convert basement to an additional unit, and build a three-car garage with roof deck. Rent two units and garage space for additional income! **************** Are you looking for a home for you and your extended household? Ditch the commute and get everyone out of the “burbs”! Bring them to their own, beautiful, private apartment(s) in the city where they can watch the kids play in the back yard, take them to outings and picnics at the beach, and never miss a school event. Combine units or keep additional unit for income! *************** This is a perfect live-in owner property. It has taken care of us for 34 years, and it can take care of you, too! ************** What is YOUR wish? This property could be your Fairy Godmother!!
