About 1956 N Orchard Street, Chicago, Illinois

Wonder of wonders. Rarely available three lot property (75' by 124)' in the heart of East Lincoln Park on prime Orchard Street. Incredible limestone home with stunning recently redone (2020) one-of-a-kind additions to the home and grounds. The home is an extraordinary property with a large and gracious floorplan oriented to take advantage of the lush south side yard. Nature is seamlessly integrated into the plan. The home has a grand center entrance. The formal living room and dining room flank the foyer. A soaring three-story staircase atrium with giant picture windows floods the home with light. The casual living space is remarkable. The kitchen is a cook's delight with two islands, eat in area, top of the line appliances, two dishwashers, butler's pantry, walk in pantry, three full sized refrigerators, six freezer drawers and wine/ beverage fridges. Huge adjacent family room leads to the outdoor kitchen, the wonderful decks and the magnificent yard. Also on this level; an office, mud room, two powder rooms, pet/kids' shower, thoughtful storage and an attached three car heated garage with roof deck on top.
