3731 N Bell

A top-notch conversion of this classic North Center two-flat is just one block from Bell Elementary School. No expense was spared in making this a one-of-a-kind home, complete with today’s layout, high-end finishes and appliances, and all the features you would expect on an oversized 30-foot lot providing 360-degrees of natural light, all in pristine condition. The feeling is light and airy, and as you walk through the grand entrance, you are transformed from the timeless Chicago classic façade into this pristine contemporary home.

This home is great for entertaining and family gatherings, with a dedicated entry foyer that flows into an open concept living room and dining room. From there, you are drawn in to a large chef’s kitchen with top of the line Sub-Zero, Miele, and Viking stainless steel appliances, as well as a center island with breakfast bar seating, a pantry closet, a powder room, a breakfast room with built-in buffet including a beverage cooler and a wine cooler, an expansive family room with fireplace, custom cabinetry, cook’s library and tons of natural sunlight all opening out to a large deck, fenced backyard, and a two and a half car garage. There are three large bedrooms and two bathrooms on the second level, including a luxurious master suite with fireplace, custom cabinetry, huge walk-in closet, private balcony, and a sophisticated spa bath with steam shower. A study opens out to the front balcony with artisan iron railings. Skylights across the 2nd floor offer great light and a cheerful ambiance.

The radiant heated lower level is newly carpeted. It has a recreation room with fireplace, wet bar, two large bedrooms, a laundry room, and plenty of storage. The lower level Jack and Jill bathroom has a dual vanity and a large steam shower.  Other features include zoned HVAC, two 100-gallon hot water tanks, a whole house security system, and a Rain Bird outdoor sprinkler system
