Built this year, a brand new home in Bronzeville with lots of room and on-trend finishes is for sale. It’s minutes from acres of green space and the University of Chicago.

The modern grey and white home comes with four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a finished basement, a giant backyard, and a two-car garage. The first level is raised a half-story so there is a bit more privacy. The entryway leads to a formal sitting area, small dining space, kitchen, and living room. Within the open layout, part of the kitchen acts as a room divider with a center wall that hides a range, cabinets, and a waterfall-edge island.

The master suite on the second level features views of treetops, a luxuriously large bedroom, and a bathroom with walk-in shower and soaking tub. The other bedrooms on this floor share a Jack and Jill style bathroom.

The sunny backyard is fenced in and mostly a grassy blank canvas ready for any landscaping, native plants, or even a vegetable garden. The home is also a few blocks away from Washington Park which has acres of green space housing the DuSable Museum of African American History, a lagoon, playgrounds, and sports fields.

5030 S. Michigan Ave. is listed for $519,900 by Alysa Peterson of Redfin.

Shiny beige wood floors and white coffered ceilings set the stage for a small glass dining room with four velvet chairs, Glass and chrome tables sit in front of a small white couch that looks out the front window across from the black iron staircase.

Looking down a narrow hallway to the right is a large island and breakfast bar with grey drawers and a white quartz waterfall countertop. To the right is more white cabinets, stainless steel sink and dishwasher, and skinny blue backsplash tiles.
The kitchen divides the dining area and comfortable tv room.
The master suit has indirect ceiling lighting, a large white and grey upholstered bed, and a comfortable white upholstered chair without arms in front of a window with tree-top views.
The top floor bedroom has room for a king bed.
