Only rarely do historic homes on double/deep city lots become available in hot appreciating neighborhoods... the William Wood House in East Ravenswood sits on almost 1/4 acre - a professionally landscaped, fully-fenced yard with a magical blend of perennials, stone path, and outdoor lighting-it's your own oasis in the city! The wide wraparound front porch leads to original vintage treasures in the Stick-style Victorian -hardwood floors, oversized double-hung windows, huge moldings, a carved wood staircase and more! The kitchen has been expanded west - a built-in breakfast room with huge bay windows overlooks the showstopper yard and enormous rear deck. The expansive renovated kitchen includes granite counters, wood ceiling, and premier stainless steel appliances. The first-floor rooms are well apportioned and flow beautifully. The living room with wood-burning fireplace and ornamental woodwork is particularly lovely! Additional special details include the butler's pantry, back servant's staircase, bonus powder room (2nd), and huge bedroom/office overlooking the backyard. Located steps from the convenient Metra, with easy access to Lake Shore Drive, the red/brown lines and multiple bus lines, this beauty is part of the East Ravenswood Historic District, which means you can use home improvements to freeze your property taxes! It's the perfect home to add an Additional Dwelling Unit (ADU), too!
