Perks for the Parents

This romantic and beautifully designed home in Irving Park includes a playroom, dress up clothes and sensational living spaces, and is 3 block from a great playground. Close to trains running to the city’s liveliest neighborhoods and the airport, it’s in a well connected and family-friendly area. Everything from the wetroom bathroom to the play room, with its wall of dress up costumes, and the cozy nook on the deck where you can enjoy the sunshine, offers a luxury take on a stay in Chicago.

Why Kids Love it

The house is great for kids under 10 and includes books, toys, balls and more. There are 2 different parks and playgrounds just 3 blocks away, and the house has a private fenced grassy backyard. For younger children, 2 high chairs, 2 toddler chairs, a single stroller and possibly a double are available to borrow, along with a Pack’n’Play, baby lounger, baby tub, a rock’n’play bassinet and more. The kids will love the play kitchen, tepee and family spaces designed to enjoy together.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 days. Note that the house has a few steps up to the front porch, and gated stairs inside the house. Overall it is child-safe but little children should still be supervised. There is plenty of street parking; car hire may not be essential as the house is 3 blocks from the train and buses which run just about everywhere in the city. There is plenty of street parking and a 2-car garage in the back.

About the Location

The residence is in the family-friendly Irving Park area of northern Chicago. The location is great: 3 blocks to 2 parks with playgrounds and 3 blocks from the Blue Line train which runs to Logan Square, Wicker Park, Bucktown and more in 10-15 minutes. It goes straight downtown to The Loop in 25 minutes. The Blue Line train also runs to O'Hare Airport in about 15-20 minutes; by car/taxi it takes 40 minutes.

Accommodation Details

This 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home has an office, and a living room on each floor. It includes a huge gourmet kitchen with 6 burner stove, butler's pantry with wine refrigerator and beer refrigerator, plus a long dining table to seat 12. The master bedroom has a California kingsize bed; the guest room has a queensize bed, and the toddler bedroom has a toddler bed that can be extended to a twin if needed, with a crib-sized toddler bed as well. The playroom can hold a queensize air mattress or Pack’n’Play, and 2 sofas can be used for further guests. Bathrooms include a wetroom with shower and another with tub. The house has a large front porch with a deck and grassy backyard with grill.

Style Notes

Graceful living. Style and grace characterize this incredible family home. With an open floor plan, tall ceilings, and bright white walls, everything is selected to created a space that feels warm, inviting, clean and very peaceful. The owner is a lover of the simplicity and zen-like qualities found in Scandinavian and Japanese design, and has created a truly unique house. The mural on the nursery bedroom wall adds a soft drama to the room, while the entry hall has a dramatic and dynamic lampshade. Everywhere, soft textures combine with neutral colors to create a warm and welcoming ambience. We love the wooden stools, floors and benches, the art, and the shaggy sheepskin throws.

I'm a freelance interior designer living in Chicago with my husband, Mark. We have 2 young boys, ages 3 and 1. My husband travels a lot for work and sometimes, I get to travel along with him! I love nearly all of Europe and parts of Asia, as does my husband. :) I love small cafes, shops, brick paths, cobblestone streets, local, fresh food and of course, art, great design and noteworthy architecture. My husband speaks German and Mandarin and is endlessly fascinated by global economics, policies and history. Cheers!
