The seller just moved out of this huge 2200 sq ft high floor condominium that was substantially renovated in 2014. Closing could be quick! The kitchen has two toned wood cabinets, Caesarstone countertops, a long bowl stainless steel undermounted sink, a Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator and a Whirlpool gas cooktop, convection wall oven, microwave and dishwasher. The washer and dryer closet has a deep laundry sink and front loading Bosch washer and dryer. The shared bath has a spacious fully tiled shower stall with a glass surround and door, and a seat with two grab bars. Shower while gazing at the lake through the window. That bathroom also has a heated floor, a large and wide granite topped 8 drawer vanity with undermounted sink and a triple door mirrored medicine cabinet. The bathroom off the bedroom nearest the kitchen was also transformed with a shower stall with sliding glass doors plus a pedestal sink and mirrored medicine cabinet. While the lake breezes flow through the many large windows, there is also central HVAC with a brand new humidifier which can be used in the winters while radiators are keep the place toasty warm. The corner layout is deemed the best in this esteemed East Hyde Park high rise. You enter a wide foyer leading to the living room which has views of the lake through the replacement windows (which are found throughout the condo). All of the entertaining space is up front. The dining room, which can accommodate the largest of dinner parties, opens to the living room and to the kitchen. The small bedroom (once for a maid) with the ensuite bath has a fold-down murphy twin bed for extra visitors. On the other side of the living room is another bedroom with two walls of windows. It is customarily used as a den in this layout, but would make a terrific home office as well. The other two bedrooms are large and airy with good storage space and lake views. The bathroom off the back bedroom has the original vintage tiles, tub, tankless toilet and mirrored medicine cabinet; all in terrific shape. Laundry in unit has a sink too! Fabulous lobbies have gorgeous woodwork & decorative ceiling. The building is handicapped accessible & the attentive staff keeps the common areas meticulously; cleaning surfaces continually. Each elevator services only two units per floor for a private ride. High speed internet and basic cable are available for $31.99/mo for effortless working at home. The building is a throwback to the time when residents expected to be coddled: 24 hour friendly doormen, on-site manager, secure parking lot with 2 electric charging stations and responsive maintenance staff make for carefree living. The parking spaces are not deeded, but you are assured a rental spot for $165/mo. However, you don't have to rent one if you choose not to have a car. The assessments include everything else except your electricity, and the building maintains healthy reserves while carefully maintaining everything inside and out. The building spent a bit over $1M on their sidewalks on both 50th and East End Ave, widening the walks & heating the sidewalk at the entrance. They installed parkway sprinklers on both streets, and replaced the main entrance doors with bronze doors. Lovely gardens, exercise facility, storage and a common laundry room. The location scored 94 as a biker's paradise and 90 as a walkers paradise. It's an easy walk or roll to bus, Metra, shops & Lakefront. Hyde Park has been undergoing a renaissance in the past years with major retailers joining the neighborhood boutique owners to create lively shopping experiences. Just around the corner, on the west side of the Metra tracks, is the recent development with Whole Foods, Marshall's and restaurants. At 53rd St is a busy commercial corridor with restaurants, a movie theater, 2 hotels, an LA Fitness gym and shops. At 55th St is the Trader Joe's and more restaurants and shops. It's a quick 10 minute drive to the Loop. The lakefront and parks are at your feet
