Watch our video walk through at 105sEllsworth.com! EXTRAORDINARY 3-story red brick “Italianate Style” house just a stone’s throw from downtown Naperville, perfectly positioned on a rare DOUBLE LOT – Outside the Historic District (not subject to additional regulations.) The current (3rd) owners purchased the property as a three-flat apartment and have renovated it back to single family.
Improvements from the 2005-2010 renovation include: ALL NEW copper plumbing, NEW electrical wiring, NEW appliances and mechanicals, NEW roof and gutters, NEW windows and/or new storms, NEW kitchen and baths, extensive hardscape and landscaping. ONE FOOT THICK SOLID BRICK exterior walls. Huge south windows flood the home with sunlight. Unique CUSTOM KITCHEN features Heartland “reproduction vintage” appliances, an old fashion “bubbler” DRINKING FOUNTAIN, ZINC counters, TIN CEILING, pantry door REPURPOSED FROM A BUTCHER SHOP meat locker, microwave hidden in the oak ice box, Bosch dishwasher.
Back door enters into MUDROOM with true METAL LOCKERS and convenient doggie shower. Wine room (off the kitchen) features ceiling comprised approx. 8000 wine corks generously donated by many, many friends. The PHONE BOOTH was salvaged from a downtown Chicago business on Monroe Street. Gleaming heart pine wood floors offer a beautiful grain and color that comes with age. Expansive MASTER SUITE with fireplace, built-in wardrobes and separate walk-in closet, spacious MASTER BATHROOM w/HEATED FLOORS, clawfoot soaking tub and separate shower.
Also on 2nd floor: BR2, Full Bath 2, Laundry Rm, 2-story Sunroom with deck access. 3rd floor offers spacious BR’s 3 & 4 and 3rd Full Bath. The lush yard with fountain and pond is reminiscent of an English Garden and provides a variety of options for outdoor seating, relaxing, entertaining. Ellsworth St is unique due to the “No Left Turn” from Chicago Ave to Ellsworth, which eliminates cut through traffic from the south – and the private school to the north blocks Ellsworth for most of the day, so through traffic to the train is not possible. Van Buren ends at Central Park parking lot, so again a very low volume of traffic.
