A wonderful enclosed front porch welcomes you to this stately all-brick center-entrance home, filled with original delights, on an enormous 34x165' lot on one of Ravenswood's best one-way blocks. Renovated 20 years ago by the contractor/owner, the house combines the best of its historic roots with easy modern living - and provides a rare combination of large open spaces and more private work/study spaces. A large gracious entry foyer with an elegant staircase opens to formal living and dining rooms, flanked on either end of the house with french doors leading out to the front porch and to the rear terrace. A modern stainless kitchen with stone counters opens to an intimate great-room area, rear deck, large lush yard, and 2-car garage. In addition to an open family room, the second floor includes four bedrooms and two baths, including a private primary suite with its own outdoor porch overlooking the grounds. The light-filled third floor - with spectacular soaring vaulted ceilings- is finished and makes awesome flex space for exercise, game room, or hang-out space. The lower level has additional flex space for playroom, office, art studio and storage. Move right in or easily take to the next level. A fabulous opportunity!
