With almost 11,000 interior square feet, five bedrooms, five full baths, three powder rooms, five incredible outdoor spaces and one meticulous renovation, 1871 N. Howe St. is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for those looking for an amenities-rich, design-forward, single-family home. Situated on a double lot in the most prestigious pocket of Lincoln Park, this home's lovely limestone facade and four-seasons landscaping by Mariani Landscape make a grand first impression. Inside, flawless millwork and modern space planning keep things bright and airy, beginning with a foyer that flaunts high ceilings, sleek wood paneling and limestone floors. Upscale, transitional design selections by Richar Interiors are evidenced throughout, including designer light fixtures, tile and stone from Ann Sacks, dark hardwood floors, Stark carpeting and Lefroy Brooks fixtures. The main floor consists of seven interconnecting living and dining spaces for seamless entertaining, including a living room with limestone fireplace, a formal dining room, an elegant library with bar, an incredible three-story gallery, a light-filled family room with fireplace, a presentation kitchen with breakfast room, and a walk-in closet/mudroom. This home's impressive chef's kitchen boasts custom white cabinetry by Christopher Peacock, Calcutta marble countertops, professional-grade appliances and a butler's pantry. The family room affords direct access via French doors to a new backyard sports court. The crown jewel of the outdoor areas is an expansive, more than 1,100-square-foot, raised deck above the attached four-car garage that features maintenance-free, porcelain tile, a professional outdoor kitchen and grill, a defined dining space and a shaded lounge for a truly impressive, alfresco oasis with a spa-like vibe. Back inside, the second floor presents three secondary bedrooms, all with en suites, a media room with custom built-ins, second-floor laundry, and a fabulous primary suite with two dressing rooms, a fireplace, a private balcony, and a hotel-worthy spa bath with dual vanity, two WCs, a standalone soaking tub and a glass-encased shower. The third level features a family-friendly, multipurpose room (think exercise room, game room, or another WFH office depending on your preference), a beverage center, and a large walk-out terrace space, and links to a rooftop observation deck with spectacular skyline views. This home also comes complete with a recently renovated lower level with a large rec room, new carpeting, a bonus laundry and a guest suite with a newly remodeled bath. Recent upgrades include a new HVAC system, new windows, several new Pella exterior doors, new decking, fresh paint and a new roof. With an epic, indoor-outdoor footprint that's walking distance to restaurants and boutique shopping along Armitage and Halsted, not to mention within close proximity to neighborhood parks and the lakefront, 1871 N. Howe St. is an incomparable property on Chicago's charming North Side.
