This tudor style home has been thoughtfully renovated over the last five years to pay homage to its storied past. Designed in 1902 by renowned architect Solon Spencer Beman (of Pullman fame) for one of Chicago's first Civil Engineers, William J. Bryson, this home served as the Coach House for Bryson's matching tudor mansion that once stood just east of this home. While the mansion was razed in 1954, this home withstood the wrecking ball and has long been admired and cherished as one of Buena Park's most iconic residences. Enter from historic Buena Avenue through the private gate into the bluestone tiled terrace, complete with an outdoor grilling area, fire pit, and plenty of space to host a garden party. The moment you walk in the front door, the house's energy grabs you as if to say "welcome home", with its vibrant earth tone color scheme, high ceilings, and comfortable furnishings. The first floor is set up with two bedrooms, which share a Jack-and-Jill bath. The den is perfect for movie night, with an attached powder room, and is adjacent to a wet bar area. The main level on the house on the second floor takes full advantage of the natural sunlight, privacy, and park-like setting of the neighborhood--the views from the living room look into a wall of trees and into the home's courtyard--not into another neighbor's living room. The great room is long and spacious with large windows, a gas fireplace, and opens to the kitchen and dining areas, all recently renovated with top-of-the-line appliances (Wolf stove, Viking refrigerator) and is complete with a walk-in butler's pantry. The primary suite is well equipped with a king size bed, and a large walk-in closet with custom organizers. The renovated primary bathroom makes mornings and long days worth it--relax in the free-standing tub, enjoy the heated floors, or take a long shower in the oversized steam shower with body sprays, then get ready for your morning or a night out in front of the double vanity and make-up counter. The guest bedroom features an en suite full bath and spacious closet, including a laundry chute (no excuse for leaving clothes on the floor)! The best work from home space is the office, tucked away with an adorable window overlooking the terrace, and french doors for privacy when on your zoom calls. This house is perfectly situated on Buena Avenue, with easy access to CTA bus lines (146 Lake Shore Drive express, 148 Clarendon Avenue commuter express), Sheridan Red Line, and only two blocks to the Montrose Lake Shore Drive ramps. At the end of the street, via the Buena Avenue pedestrian tunnel under Lake Shore Drive, is easy access to the lakefront path, Montrose Harbor, the Bird Sanctuary, Montrose Dog Beach, and all that lake life has to offer. Have a cup of coffee at Klein's Bakery, and grab your favorite bottle of wine and one of the best sandwiches on the north side at North Buena Wine and Deli, just two blocks west! And of course, Bar on Buena, a Buena Park staple, is right across the street from the north branch of the Public Library--all of this right on Buena Avenue!
