At first look, this 5-bedroom home in Edgewater’s Lakewood Balmoral district offers the well-known, historic neighborhood charm. However, a complete rehab and expansion on an extra-wide lot provide a modern, light-filled space.
The addition on the backend houses the kitchen, living space, and master suite which all have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking abundant greenery. All five bedrooms are on the second and third floors, and the conversion of the basement into a sixth bedroom is possible.
There are also three decks, including a 400-square-foot rooftop lounge with an outdoor fireplace. If its too chilly outside, you can cozy up in front of one of the three other indoor fireplaces. Need another place to relax? Try the wood-paneled sauna or maybe the recreation room.
Natural light floods through skylights and large windows on all four levels of the home. The clean modern lines, open shelving, minimalist feel and incredible open space are envy-inducing features. However, the $1.45 million price tag is a bit hard to swallow.
