**Rarely Available Architectural Gem--Unit 21B ** Stunning Spanish Renaissance Revival structure built during an era when extra time was invested creating intricate detailing and carvings. Sixty-six units are arranged to maximize natural light and cross-breezes via oversized windows, this U-shaped courtyard building is frosted in white terra-cotta and adorned with the ornamentation of masters from the late 1920s. Still vibrant today due to the vigilance of the homeowners and dedicated maintenance professionals, Casa Bonita is a stunning place to call home. The beauty of the landscaped courtyard and fountain set the stage for what lies inside the doors--exquisite terrazzo floors, heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room, workshop, and billiard room on the main floor draw residents together and pamper them with amenities beyond the scope of most buildings. A staircase with a window leads you up to #21B, and you enter into a spacious 1200 foot unit drenched in southern light through the multiple metal casement windows in the living room. This home still has the living room ringed with thick cove molding and multiple sconces. The ornately carved decorative fireplace anchors the room while leaving ample room for two distinct sitting areas. Past the spacious entryway is a narrow room masquerading as a walk-in closet, but could easily be an office space if needed, or just keep it as an over-achieving closet. The primary bedroom easily holds a king-sized bed and two nightstands on the far wall and leaves room for a double dresser. The primary bedroom has its own door to the full bath which has a fantastic neutral color tile and room for additional storage if desired. The dining room is enormous and can fit an oversized rectangular table making hosting friends and family a pleasure. The second bedroom still has the original built-in clothing cupboard in its natural wood finish and a sunny window that looks out to the trees. The kitchen has room for a bistro table or free-standing kitchen storage cabinet, double casement windows, an original nook, and a door to the back porch. Building runs much higher reserves than other condo buildings which is evident in the exquisite maintenance of the building from the personalized backdoor trash pick up to the award-winning terracotta maintenance. No neglect here! This pet-friendly home is a true two bedroom with oversized living and dining rooms and amenities to match. Close proximity to the culinary delights of Howard & Clark Streets, two gorgeous area parks, the Ravenswood Metra train line, and the express Western bus. Waiting list for monthly parking for a fee. Do not miss this rare architectural gem designed in 1928 by Alexander Capraro and Morris Komar. Pride of ownership is evident. Schedule to see it now before another architecture buff makes it theirs.
