Property Description

The original owners have thoroughly refreshed this sunny townhome in the Jazz on the Boulevard in South Kenwood/Bronzeville. The marble foyer floor has been refinished to its original glossy sheen. All of the walls have been resurfaced and repainted. All of the carpeting is new. The ground floor bath and the powder room on the main floor have new vanities and sinks. The foyer and stairwell lights are new. New fans with lights are in the top floor bedrooms. All of the 2" wide Venetian blinds are new. New high end stainless steel appliances were installed in the kitchen and a new front loading washer and dryer are on the top floor. To top it off, there is a new deck off the dining room and a new deck on the roof with beautiful views of the surrounding neighborhood and the wide Midwestern skies. Pressure treated wood means you'll have years of enjoyment from both decks. This house has a terrific layout. On the ground floor is a carpeted bedroom with a good size closet, a full tiled bath with tub/shower, the water pump for great water pressure all through the home, a coat closet (which somehow builders forget these days) and the long attached garage with plenty of storage space. The carpeted stairs lead to the entertaining floor. A big bright living room with 3 windows facing east and one facing south has a gas fired fireplace with a marble surround. The room is wired for surround sound and a TV over the fireplace. Both can lights and track lights add drama. It opens to the dining room and kitchen which access the just redone balcony for lovely al fresco meals. The kitchen has maple cabinets and black granite counters. A pot rack hangs above the peninsula. The new appliances include a gas range, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. Also on this floor is the powder room and furnace room which has a 50 gal hot water heater manufactured in May 2018 and the HVAC system which heats and cools the entire house. Up the 2nd set of carpeted stairs are two good size bedrooms with closets that span entire walls. The master bedroom has a door opening directly into the tiled bath which also has a hallway door. It has a whirlpool bathtub/shower. Off the landing is the laundry closet. Up the last set of carpeted stairs is a small bright landing perfect for a reading nook or desk. The door opens to the brand new deck with wonderful wide open views. The house is remarkably bright because the west side of the house overlooks a field that is owned by a fraternal group which uses it a couple of times a month as a parking lot for their meetings. Walkscore says it is very walkable and very bikeable with good transit. Martin Luther King High School is just down the street. The shopping corridor of 47th St boasts a Walmart, Binneys, Ross and Walgreens. You are just over a mile from the 53rd St entertainment center with great shopping and restaurants. Mariano's is a mile to the north. Whole Foods is east. Trader Joes at 55th St. The Cottage Grove bus stops just behind the house heading to the Loop and beyond. Mandrake Park is a few blocks north with its running track. The new pedestrian bridge to the lakefront and Oakwood Beach and marina is a few blocks east. So lovely to watch the boats. The lush Drexel Boulevard parkway has recently refurbished paths for shady walks. This townhome is in the middle of this most private block for quiet living, yet it is a mere 10 minute drive to the Loop along the majestic Lake Shore Drive. It's been burnished and buffed and is ready to move in.
