Come see this solid and well-built 3B/1B newly beautified 1890 Chicago brick bungalow in Bridgeport! The home is located on a one-way street with no outlet providing for the quiet use and enjoyment of the home and block. Inside, you will find tremendous vintage charm in the living spaces and sleek and tasteful contemporary renovations of kitchen and bathroom which, along with thoughtful exterior improvements all combine to make this a warm, inviting, and attractive new home. Major work completed in the last few years includes a newly plumbed and wholly renovated kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen features premium stainless steel GE Monogram appliances, high output range-hood fan, new cabinetry, quartz countertops, white subway tile backsplash, and stainless-steel open shelving. The original hardwood floors have been beautifully and warmly restored throughout, and the home boasts newly-installed baseboard heating. A terrific and money-saving feature of the home is the newly-installed and space-saving high-efficiency/high-output combination boiler/on-demand hot water heater by NTI. The exterior of the home has also been the beneficiary of thoughtful and handsome improvements including new exterior light fixtures, a newly-poured cement gangway with fully secure attractive metal/wood access gates, and new rear exterior Hardy board siding in a French blue hue which coordinates with the brand-new two-car garage. The backyard is perfect for enjoying on your own or for entertaining friends and family. The nice-sized grassy area is surrounded by a pebble path with large stepping-tiles and recently built (and planted!) raised garden beds with custom timer-operated drip irrigation system. The brand new two-car garage features plenty of additional storage and a long wooden work surface inside, along with a smashing party door that opens onto a patio stepping down to the backyard extending the entertaining spaces and options. Out front, the curb appeal is off the charts. Elegant new landscaping, along with a long custom wooden flower box which graces the architectural stone corbels of the facade, complement the alluring brick architecture of this classic Chicago raised bungalow. There is tremendous potential for taking this property to the platinum level by expanding the living space in both the tall attic (create a spacious primary bedroom suite and bedroom/den) and tall basement (convert to open recreational area and additional bedrooms). There is no central air conditioning system installed currently, but the house can be effectively cooled by window units with a cumulative 20K BTUs - or new owner can install ductless mini split a/c wall units. Come take a look at this extremely handsome charmer of a house located in prime Bridgeport near terrific galleries, independent coffee shops, and excellent restaurants!
