Available for in person showings!The new 4896 North Paulina is a sophisticated home that has undergone a plush renovation in a top Ravenswood location. This spacious home, originally built in 1885, is situated on a huge 52x165 lot and is conveniently located in the northeast corner of the Ravenswood neighborhood, adjacent to Lincoln Square, Andersonville, and Winnemac neighborhoods. The existing structure was rehabbed down to the original masonry walls to give this historic home a new chapter. There are six bedrooms (four upstairs, two on the lower level), five bathrooms, and an elegant first-floor powder room. The home features three mudrooms. And it is perfect for entertaining. The large home features an estimated 5300 square feet of high-quality design with a contemporary flair and boasts over 10' ceilings on the first and second floor. It's a commuter's dream, located near schools including Lycee Francais de Chicago, Chicago Waldorf School, and Rogers Park Montessori School and the Ravenswood Metra station. Upon entering the original striking front door to the main level, you'll notice the flowing space and seamless transitions from the foyer into the large living room, dining room, lounge area, and high-end kitchen. The kitchen displays honed, Italian porcelain counters, professional appliances, Wolf, Fisher Paykel, Sub-Zero, Bosch, a large breakfast peninsula, and a spacious, separate custom-built pantry and breakfast room. The abundant natural light, warm woods, and elegant metal materials will make you feel at ease and right at home. Upstairs, you'll find four large bedrooms with custom-built closets. The gorgeous master suite has it's own private roof terrace and features a soaking tub w/ large separate shower, as well as a large walk-in closet. The convenient upstairs laundry room offers stone countertops, a stainless steel sink, and European-style cabinetry. The lower level includes a family room with loads of natural light, a wet bar with a wine cooler, two spacious bedrooms, another large bath, and plenty of storage, complete with comforting floor radiant heat throughout the lower level. The third Mudroom leads you out to the gated backyard. Throughout the home, you'll notice the elegant trim package, which includes 8' doors, modern hardware, and custom railings. An oversized glass door leads from the Family Room to the rear open deck which benefits from low maintenance composite materials and a wood trellis. The exterior of the property offers a front covered porch, originally restored brick and stone elements, Marvin windows, Hardie siding, and garage parking for four cars.
