About 39 E Elm Street, Chicago, Illinois

Historically significant yet fully renovated for contemporary conveniences, 39 E. Elm St. is a 4 bed/3.5 bath single-family townhome with serious pedigree and polish. Located in the preeminent, residential part of the Gold Coast, steps from the lakefront and Chicago's world-class dining and shopping, this 4,650-square-foot greystone stuns from the street thanks to a limestone facade, manicured landscaping and a beautiful, stately front door. Originally built in 1887 by Potter Palmer, aristocratic character endures inside, too, but every inch has been deftly designed with quality finishes and modern flow, beginning with an elegant foyer that flaunts black-and-white stone floors and detailed crown molding. Refinished, original hardwood floors connect this home's living and entertaining spaces, including a light-filled living room with custom built-ins and a marble fireplace, and an open-concept dining room that finds definition from a second fireplace and a gilded, crystal chandelier. This home's custom, all-white chef's kitchen features marble countertops, flawless Christopher Peacock cabinetry, professional-grade appliances, a large island with counter seating, another original fireplace, a butler's pantry with wine fridge, and immediate access to a private back terrace and patio. This home's refinished, spindle staircase is a lovely statement feature, and a stellar example of the millwork details throughout. Upstairs, the second level reveals a spacious primary suite and a handsome library/den with designer wallpaper and wall-to-wall bookshelves. The primary bedroom boasts more beautiful built-ins, a fourth fireplace, a large dressing room with accessories island, and a marble en-suite bath with dual vanity and a glass, walk-in shower. (Cabinetry in the primary closet and bath are Christopher Peacock as well.) The top floor presents two secondary bedrooms, a full bath and an upstairs laundry. This home's lower level features a large family/media room, temperature-controlled wine storage, a proper mudroom, and a garden-level guest/in-laws suite with a modern kitchenette. Additional details and amenities include newly renovated baths with heated floors and Lefroy Brooks/Perrin Rowe fixtures, fresh interior and exterior paint, designer lighting, Stark carpet runners, custom closets throughout, new blinds throughout, six total fireplaces, and a deeded parking space nearby that is included in the list price. With proximity to the best of everything on Chicago's Near North Side, including top schools and the Division Street Farmers' Market, 39 E. Elm St. is turnkey living for the refined homebuyer.
