Often when a house is a one-owner home, the kitchen or bathrooms need updating or the paint needs to be neutralized. Why? Because time has a way of turning our eyes blind to what updates our home needs. But sometimes there is the rare exception where a home has been meticulously updated over the years because it’s owned and loved by just one owner. This week’s High Caliber Home of the Week, sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is that rare home that’s been lovingly updated to perfection.
The modern townhome at 4029 Gilbert Avenue in Oak Lawn is a three-bedroom, three-and-half-bath property with 2,975 square feet. Lori Ericsson with David Griffin and Company Realtors has listed the three-story townhome for $995,000.
Modern cement pads surrounded by black landscape stone and a patinaed corten planter at the entrance set the stage for what style is inside. The floating bamboo staircase that spans three floors is a natural showcase for artwork with its museum finish walls, soft filtered natural light, and custom art lighting. Unusual for a townhome, the home enjoys an abundance of natural light and tree views from all four sides.
The chef-inspired gourmet kitchen features double 36″ ovens, custom steel spice shelves above the kitchen cooktop, and an extra utility sink in the kitchen with garbage disposal. There’s plenty of counterspace with an extra-long kitchen island with deep steel-reinforced overhang and substantial storage with custom ceiling-height cabinets, a walk-in pantry, and additional deep cabinet space.
The top-floor owner’s suite features a window wall with Hunter Douglas vertical privacy sheers, fireplace, custom walk-in closet, a hydrotherapeutic tub, and attached space for a workout area or quiet sitting area. Two secondary bedrooms are located on the first and third floors.
The outdoor space in this townhome is outstanding. There are four outdoor spaces to enjoy including two separate rooftop decks with engineered wood decking, an outdoor shower, hot tub ready steel-reinforced area (hot tub purchase optional), and outdoor speakers that are connected to the home automation system.
Immersed in a quiet but highly walkable neighborhood close to restaurants, retail, and trails, this sophisticated modern townhome combines dramatic beauty with a comfortable atmosphere.
