Timeless and turnkey with an incredible outdoor footprint that includes a pool, 545 W. Dickens Ave. is a 5-6 bed/5.5 bath, 6,400-square-foot single-family home located in Chicago's coveted Lincoln School District. Situated on a charming residential stretch of Dickens, this 1880s home's facade has 50-ft-wide frontage that has been expertly maintained to preserve its original character, including turn-of-the-century front doors and updated ironwork. Inside, the entire home was stripped back to the brick to create a one-of-a-kind, custom dwelling for elevated entertaining and modern living. The living spaces are impressively open-concept for the provenance of the home. The entryway opens onto a main level that's designed for entertaining, including a natural light-filled living room with large plank white oak hardwood floors, a distinctive fireplace, and custom, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, a large formal dining room with meticulous millwork details and a built-in wet bar and dumbwaiter direct to kitchen, and a polished family room that invites gatherings. (This level also features an ensuite guest bedroom as well as a stylish bonus room with custom cabinetry) The second level boasts a large sitting room with a second fireplace that connects to a great room and a designer kitchen. The great room features a breakfast dining space and a den with a movie screen that drops down from the ceiling, while the light and bright chef's kitchen stuns with custom Arclinea cabinetry, marble countertops, a large island with seating for five, and professional-grade appliances. Both the great room and the kitchen link to a 45' x 28' back deck - more than 1,200 square feet of private outdoor space! - with defined dining and lounging spaces, a pergola, and a pool with a retractable cover and endless swim resistance feature. The top floor presents four total bedrooms (one with yet another gorgeous, wood-burning fireplace), including a large primary bedroom with a custom walk-through closet and a spa-like ensuite bath with a dual vanity, a soaking tub, and a glass-encased shower. But there's more... This spectacular home also comes complete with a basement level that boasts a wine cellar, surplus storage areas, multi-purpose recreation/craft area and a fully equipped home gym with attached bath (could be used as additional bedroom space). Additional callout details include designer draperies and custom shades, designer light fixtures, three total fireplaces, and an attached two-car garage. Walking distance to Oz Park, Lincoln Park proper, the Nature Boardwalk and Lincoln Park Zoo, and the beautiful beaches along Lake Michigan, 545 W. Dickens Ave. is a design-forward home with first-class amenities and proximity to the very best of Chicago.
