NEIGHBORHOOD: Highland Park
We renovated 933 N St Clair Street a few years back. You don’t remember it, because it never hit the market and was promptly claimed in a pre-sale. But now that this three-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath spot’s back on the market, we’ll give you the full rundown.
First though, you’re invited to climb the second level’s spiral staircase to a third-floor loft with stackable laundry and wooden ceiling beams. The master bedroom’s close by, boasting an ensuite bath; lofted ceilings; exposed, track-lit floor joists; and an adorably tiny balcony.
Design-wise, this place is a combination of contemporary and natural elements. Exposed brick, recessed lighting, and hardwood floors are prominent throughout, while a gourmet kitchen offers granite countertops, stainless appliances (including a coveted Wolf stove), and a set of French doors connected to a rear deck. A sizable entertainment space on its own, this deck features a catwalk that leads to an extended deck above a two-vehicle carport. And because a backyard of this caliber deserves solid privacy, an XL tree was planted long ago — and has since proven to be quite effective.
