Sophisticated urban living in the heart of the University of Chicago community. When Davis Swan designed this residence on Kimbark Avenue in 1985, his post-modern house replicated the rhythmic quality of other older houses on the block. However, Swan used a series of geometric solids and voids to do so, that today blend beautifully into the streetscape. The 6 bedroom, 4.2 bath home he created is a jewel, with broad windows encompassing the surrounding landscape and interiors that provide sizable volumes for each member of a family to find their own space. Situated in a coveted location, the house is contemporary yet malleable to a number of styles within. 5748 has been beautifully transformed by the current owner. Windows have been replaced, Pella doors are new, hardwood floors redone, while a continuity of color palette and design flows through each of the four levels. The stunning high-end kitchen opens onto a family room, providing a space that is perfect for entertaining, with vistas out to the lushly landscaped patio and BBQ area. On the second level there are four bedrooms with high-end and ingeniously designed custom closets in each, two new bathrooms and a large laundry. Sun porches and decks add additional welcome and private areas for summer enjoyment.The master suite encompasses the entire third level, with a separate office and fabulous bath - truly a room with a view. A dressing area and two walk-in closets add to the amenities. Full finished basement and, a necessity for this location, the requisite garage and parking pad. Meticulously cared for and a fresh departure from the surrounding Gothic structures of the University of Chicago, this house is move-in ready. A home where you can write the next chapter of its extraordinary history.
