Description

PULLMAN HISTORIC DISTRICT! "Skilled Craftsman" Row House - fully renovated and beautifully restored! First built in 1883, this well-preserved four-bedroom, one-bath row house features a formal dining room, new kitchen, new bath, ten-foot ceilings, and hardwood floors throughout. Most of the original woodwork, four-panel doors, hardware, and floor plan have been carefully preserved, including the original staircase and oak balustrade was stripped and beautifully restored. The entry vestibule introduces new tile replicating a vintage tile floor pattern from another building in Pullman. A highlight is a new kitchen with custom "Westminster" cabinets, a quartz countertop, farmhouse sink, hexagon-pattern marble floor, and new appliances. The new bath features a deep tub, subway tile, a skylight, and a new shaker floor tile in a historical configuration. Several attributes include a new roof, new plumbing, and a new furnace & central air in 2022. Enjoy the enclosed porch year-round, with a skylight and plenty of windows, which opens up to a large redone deck in the rear. The upgraded 2-car garage has insulated walls and a workbench area. There is plenty of storage and a laundry area in the basement. This historical row house is a rare end unit on a 24-foot by 124-foot lot and includes a four-foot gangway (the district has no homeowner assessments). The seller will respond to offers after May 26, allowing at least five days for showings. This row house was built as part of the Original Town of Pullman, constructed in the 1880s by George Pullman, founder of Pullman's Palace Car Company. Today, this home is located in the Pullman National Historic Landmark District since 1970, a City of Chicago Landmark District since 1972, and within the Pullman National Monument declared in 2015, with restoration happening throughout the area. There is easy access to i-94 and Metra Electric trains. If you are looking for a completely upgraded and yet historically preserved home, this is it!
