Sophisticated & Classic Renovated Home

Sophisticated, classic, and exquisitely designed, 2825 N. Cambridge Ave. is a 5000-square-foot, 5 bed/6 bath, completely renovated home located in Chicago's charming East Lakeview neighborhood sited on a rare 33' x 150' parcel. Expertly updated and appointed by the award-winning designers at James Thomas Chicago to preserve the home's vintage character while layering in first-class finishes and modern comforts, the main level begins with a traditional entry and foyer with two custom coat closets and a beautiful hand-painted wall treatment. Refinished original hardwood floors and seamless custom millwork details connect the main living and entertaining spaces - an elegant living room with a custom marble fireplace, a formal dining room with a built-in buffet, a hand-painted wall mural, and a silver leaf treatment on the ceiling, an inviting family room with a second fireplace, and a handsome den with a built-in media center and coffered ceiling. The chef's kitchen stuns with custom cabinetry, natural stone countertops, professional-grade appliances including a wine station, an island with counter seating, a walk-in pantry, and a sunlit breakfast area that overlooks the back patio and garden. Upstairs, the second level presents two exquisitely designed secondary bedrooms, one with a 16' x 4' private terrace with refreshed tile, and a spacious primary suite with a custom Venetian plaster finish, a deluxe dressing room, and a spa-like ensuite bath with a dual vanity, a deep soaking tub, a glass-encased shower, and a standalone water closet. The top level features a bespoke rec room with custom built-ins and a gaming table nook, plus a customized fitness room with a beverage center. Better still, the lower level boasts an expansive guest suite with a recently renovated kitchenette, a cozy den, two offices, a 1,200-bottle wine cellar, a craft room, a stylish mudroom with heated floors, and surplus custom storage. Plus, this gorgeous home has three meticulously hardscaped/landscaped outdoor spaces - a gated front yard with pretty pavers and mature trees, a 33' x 32' bluestone back patio with a built-in outdoor kitchen and exterior audio, and a side yard that runs the length of the house. (All greenery has been updated/refreshed, including the addition of a lattice wall on the side of the garage and house.) There's also a highly rare, oversized three-car garage with epoxy flooring. Additional callout details include custom window treatments throughout including automatic shades in all of the bedrooms, designer wallcoverings and light fixtures throughout, custom closets throughout, hand-painted wall murals in the dining room, hallway, and stairs, two design-forward powder rooms, updated lower level and second-floor laundry, state-of-the-art AV, security and irrigation systems, new landscape lighting, and a brand new roof. Effortlessly elegant, completely turnkey, and walking distance to the best of Lakeview and Lake Michigan, 2825 N. Cambridge Ave. is in a class of its own.
