ROGERS PARK — A five-bedroom, 4½-bathroom bath home 1718 W. Jarvis Ave. listed for $499,900.
Connie Abels, the RE/MAX listing agent, said this stately home is flanked on the outside with wrought-iron fences, stone planters and stone pillars with period lanterns atop. The large enclosed front porch has a tiled floor, bead board ceiling, beautiful wood accents and a porch swing, she said, and the double foyer has beautiful oak pillars.
There are jalousie windows throughout the home, and a stunning 18-foot ceiling makes the living room even more spacious, Abels said.
It's completed by a marble- and oak-trimmed wood-burning fireplace, built-in bench seating flanking the fireplace with leaded glass, and a long built-in bench along the wood-trimmed windows on the side of the room. It has wall sconces around the room, a lighted tray with up-lights, and skylights.
A second foyer leads toward the beamed ceiling dining room, with the original gaslight fixtures that have been converted to electric. Another built-in bench leads to a French door that lead to the kitchen.
It features maple cabinets with crown molding, butcher block counters and stainless steel appliances — a newer Kitchenaid five-burner stove, dishwasher and French-door refrigerator with bottom freezer. The maple floors lead to a mud room and out into the backyard.
The main level has a full bathroom with a whirlpool tub and a pedestal sink, as well as three bedrooms, all accessed through a hallway that also has a laundry chute. One of the bedrooms has an en suite half bath.
Upstairs is a loft that Abels described as an "immense living space, with two skylights and windows with mullions." There is also a raised area with a spacious closet.
There are also two master suites, each with its own private bath and walk-in closets. The smaller one has a private bath with a shower and skylights. The larger one has a private bath with skylight, a separate whirlpool bath, double-bowl sink and a separate tile bath.
The home was built on three city lots that sit just five blocks from the lake.
