The rare jewel of all riverfront properties in Ravenswood Manor. 2711 W Windsor sits elegantly facing the river with a tremendous front lawn with 135' of River frontage that reaches down to your private permanent dock. You will feel as if you are magically transported to your country estate whenever you come home. Located in the fabulous Ravenswood Manor neighborhood, there is truly nothing like this house to be found anywhere within the city boundaries. Long time owners have meticulously and carefully crafted a classic home full of vintage features, custom millwork, custom cabinetry, and lovely spaces. Much thought has gone into planning the interior. The layout and design not only show a sensitivity to the age and architecture of the original house but bow graciously to the modernization that is necessary for today's living. Nothing here has been overlooked. No expense has been spared. The first floor is open and has tremendous flexibility of use. The front sunroom is being used as a formal dining room but works just as well as a wonderful sitting room, home office or playroom. The focal point of the living room is an amazing wood burning fireplace with custom millwork, a custom facade and original metal doors. The den bridges the foyer and the kitchen and has been finished with incredible custom built columns. The kitchen has space for a table with a built-in banquette and a breakfast bar and is a creative cook's dream - custom quarter sawn oak cabinets, ample and well planned. The powder room was added by these owners and is a showplace. Upstairs, the primary suite is a private retreat with windows facing south, east and west, a huge walk-in closet and spacious bath with jetted tub, heated floors, and separate shower with a unique toe tester. Two additional spacious queen sized bedrooms, another custom designed bath and an incredible library with river and treetop views and a snug gas fireplace. There is room to add your own personal touches. The basement is vast and dry and additional living space could be added to the existing guest bedroom and bath. This is not a floodplain and the river never freezes so access is available all year long for boating, kayaking, birding, and experiencing incredible nature right outside your door. Ravenswood Manor is known as a tight-knit community with wonderful and plentiful parks, nature trails, bike paths; great restaurants and shopping in close by Lincoln Square, amazing transportation with the Brown Line El stop 1/2 mile away, near 90-94 and with incredible school options (Waters Elementary, Queen of Angels, North Park, Lycee Francais de Chicago, Northside College Prep, DePaul College Prep, Lane Tech) nearby. If you are seeking something unique that is incredibly special, 2711 W Windsor has all your must haves.
