Beds: 5 bed

Garage: 2-car attached garage
School: Oscar Mayer Elementary School

This home is filled with show-stopping details! My favorite aspect of the property is that it is one of those few special homes that is adjacent to a beautifully-landscaped double lot! The expansive three-story windows allow you to reap all the benefits of the lush greenery and natural light. 

I also love the neutral, yet thoughtfully detailed interior design featuring gas fireplaces with marble detail, Brazilian walnut floors, and coffered ceilings. Plus, the floor plan is so well-thought out--very convenient and so conducive to entertaining. I especially love the attached two-car garage(!), five outdoor spaces, and recreation room with wet bar and custom movie theater. The open flow from the kitchen to the large family room also allows for great sight lines, and access to the main floor patio with built-in gas grill. 

The master bath feels like a special retreat, and features dual walk-in closets, gas fireplace, private balcony and a spa-like bath and separate steam shower. I also love the third level with a flexible sitting and office area, which can easily be converted to a fifth bedroom. Plus, the rooftop deck features amazing city views!

School: Pulaski International

What a beautiful, livable home in the heart of Bucktown! Every time I walk into this home I am struck by just how much natural light beams in through the arched living room windows. The classic wood mantle and marble surround, plus refinished Jacobean hardwood floors add to the elegant feel of the room. 

I also love the thoughtful details in the kitchen like the new buffet/media center and the stainless steel subway tile backsplash (so sleek and easy to clean!). The seamless transition from the kitchen to family room also makes the floor plan so accommodating. A new refrigerator and dishwasher don't hurt either! 

The cathedral ceilings and private balcony, plus new master bath, make the master suit a real retreat. Think a total spa-like experience in the master bath with a multi-head rain/body shower, carrera and glass tiled walls, and heated floors. 

The lower level recreation room is perfect for relaxing or entertaining, with a gas fire place and large wet bar. Or, head out to the back deck or roof deck.

Garage: 2 car
School: Oscar Mayer

Spectacular is really the only word that comes close to describing this property. Every single aspect of this home has been designed with the upmost consideration, and the end result is a giant WOW. 

After admiring the brick and limestone facade and tree-lined Lincoln Park street on which the home is situated, walk through the front door and admire the open floor plan, high ceilings and intricate millwork. The custom inlays on the 4-inch wide oak hardwood flooring are also to die for! 

In the kitchen, the quartzite waterfall island is a show stopper, and spacious enough for six bar stools. The top-of-the-line appliance package with custom cabinet overlays make the white-on-white kitchen feel so fresh and open. Gold hardware, custom in-cabinet lighting and exquisite glass pendents round out this truly special kitchen. 

In the master bedroom you will find two walk-in closets and views of the paved patio and garage roof deck--a true retreat from the hustle and bustle. The master bath features a double vanity and separate makeup area, steam shower and separate water closet. The white and gray finishes in the master bath also give the space such a spa-like appeal. 

The top floor penthouse is the perfect getaway, complete with a wet bar, covered loggia with a gas fire place and deck with spectacular city views. Or, head to the lower level recreation room where you will find a second wet bar and temperature-controlled wine cellar. Grab a glass of wine and head out back to the heated bluestone patio with a built-in grilling station and wood burning fire place.

1907 N Bissell St

Overview:
Beds: 3
Baths: 2 Full
Garage: Detached, 1 Car
School: Mayer Elementary

This property is the best of both worlds: an incredible vintage facade with all the charm of another time, with a 2014 gut rehab inside. The white-on-white professional kitchen features one of the largest islands I've ever seen, making the kitchen functional, yet really drop dead gorgeous! 

Along with all the high-end finishes, the views to the street particularly from the master, are also special feature. The mature trees add such a lush privacy buffer for the home. Coupled with the professionally landscaped yard, the property feels like a little oasis in the midst of the city. But when the lure of the city calls, the Armitage shopping strip, Steppenwolf Theatre and Oz Park are all a walk away.

728 W Melrose St

Overview:
Beds: 4
Bath: 4 Full, 1 Half
Garage: Attached, 2 car
School: Nettlehorst

I love this property for all that it offers both in terms of amenities and location. First, can you really put a price on an attached (two car) garage in the city? Easily tote your groceries into the house and through to the kitchen, which is as beautiful as it is well-thought out. Top-of-the-line appliances are complemented by a large walk-in pantry and an eat-in island. I also love the deck off the kitchen, which leads to the backyard patio -- talk about perfect for entertaining! Then when the party is over, retire to your master suite, complete with a wood burning fireplace. 

The location is also tough to beat, nestled just a few blocks from the Lake, El, Lake Shore Drive, and all the shops along Halsted and Broadway.

This home is a true Chicago gem. Built in 1911 by architects Mundie & Jensen, the property was originally commissioned by Cyrus Bentley, an acclaimed lawyer of the time. Impeccably maintained, you truly feel the history of the era through the beautifully updated interior. 

To celebrate its downtown location, this duplex penthouse features a 1600 square foot private rooftop deck with panoramic city views, and Trex decking for easy maintenance. One of my favorite aspects of this home is its historic merit coupled with its modern amenities. 

When first walking into the home you are greeted by a dramatic entry way featuring a beautiful wood staircase. Next you find a large living room with great natural light, perfect for entertaining guests at the wet bar and around the wood burning fireplace. 

The second floor features all three bedrooms, including the master suite complete with a spa-like master bathroom--jacuzzi tub, steam shower, heated floors, double vanity and built-in make up area!

Garage: 2.5 car, heated detached
School: Oscar Mayer

This property is a truly spectacular combination of a particularly well-thought out floor plan, gorgeous finishes and OUTDOOR SPACES! What I love most about the floor plan is the flow and openness. On the main level, the combination of the kitchen, breakfast nook with built-in banquette and family room makes for beautiful sight lines and bright, airy open spaces.

The second floor features three bedrooms, including the incredible master suite with two walk-in closets, fireplace and beautiful marble master bathroom (double vanity, steam shower, jacuzzi tub -- the works!). I also love that the office is on the third level, offering beautiful views off the private terrace and tons of light. The fourth bedroom also features a very large private terrace and en-suite bathroom. 

Two additional outdoor spaces include the patio and huge deck featuring a pergola, surround sound and custom lighting. One of my favorite details of this home is the thoughtful and innovative breezeway that runs across the backyard, connecting the home to the heated 2.5 car garage. This home is truly as beautiful inside as it is outside, with a true attention to detail.

There are a few reasons why this property is so special. First, all the natural light! Really, the first second I walked into this home, I was amazed by the bright and open feeling. The three-story windows overlooking the neighbor's side yard definitely has something to do with it. I also can't get over all of the outdoor spaces: FIVE! This home is definitely for the ultimate entertainer. 

I also love the floor plan--for entertaining, but also just for everyday living. The recreation room with wet bar and movie theater is perfect for family nights, and I really love the separate dining room. The versatility of the third floor is also great since it could be setup as an office/sitting area or fifth bedroom. Whichever way you decide to lay out the space, the rooftop deck and city views can't be beat!
