Property Description

This mixed-use corner property is an ideal option for the savvy entrepreneur. A perfect separation of work and play; live upstairs in the gorgeous apartment, and a quick commute downstairs delivers you directly to your new brick-and-mortar storefront. A large picture window at the front of the commercial unit floods the entire space with light, and east-facing windows along the side add to the sunny floorplan that is a blank but beautiful slate to build any type of business. This unit has direct access to the basement, perfect for extra storage, or exterior Bilco doors allow landlord access to utilities (gas and electric are already separate) without disturbing a tenant. The apartment upstairs has also been totally renovated and is ready to wow any future owner-occupant or renter. This unit is accessed through the pretty and private rear patio via a proper vestibule entry. Throughout, timeless finishes are paired with fun tile and blond hardwood floors to add just the right balance of style and personality. There are two large bedrooms towards the front, one with a lovely bay window, along with a spacious bathroom featuring white beadboard vanity, black and white patterned tile floors, and subway tile tub surround. The L-shaped kitchen is at the rear with marbled quartz countertops, subway tile backsplash, crisp white Shaker-style cabinets, and stainless steel undermount sink and GE appliances. Commuters will appreciate the convenience to multiple trolley lines while community greenspace can be found at nearby Carroll Park or a quick ride over to Fairmount Park.
