Home of the Week: A 19th Century Classic Home in Chicago
A four level historic home in one of Chicago’s best neighborhoods
Located on a prestigious block in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, this $6.4 million dollar home is a perfect blend of classic architecture and modern luxury. The home was designed in 1891 by James Egan, who was one of the handful of architects who rebuilt the city following the “Great Chicago Fire”. Mr. Egan is best known for his work designing some of the city’s grandest Catholic churches. With its rustic stones, colored mortar and distinguished arches, this home is a timeless example of the French Romanesque style that was popular during the Civil War.
This home set on a 150-foot deep lot offers four levels of elegant living space, a private landscaped backyard and a very cool rooftop terrace. The interior boasts 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half baths along with fireplaces, a breakfast room, an exercise room and a sizable wine cellar.
