Property Description

The home creates an unmatched synergy with nature through the tall windows and screened porches on both the first and second floors. The recent improvements bring out the best of the vintage character in the home with newly refinished striking dark quarter sawn oak hardwood flooring and freshly painted walls that highlight the built-in bookcases, interesting millwork, tall ceilings, double doors, and four fireplaces. The bright kitchen enjoys views of both the front and back yards.

The highly regarded architect, Stanley Anderson, designed the south wing first floor bedroom suite addition. The flexible floor plan features two large en-suite bedrooms on the second floor and two on the first floor, plus a bonus office that could be used as first floor laundry/mudroom. Additional amenities include an attached two car garage and unfinished basement with storage space.

Privacy abounds in both the front and back yards. With a reputation for extraordinary landscape architecture, Mariani Landscape designed the front yard landscaping. This sunny spot includes a sweeping lawn and brick patio that are accented by flowers and gardens. Take advantage of this unique offering that has not been available for almost half a century.

About the architects, Probst & Probst were a father and son team. Their firm captured the majority of the large commissions in Chicago from 1912-1936, including the Wrigley Building, Merchandise Mart, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, Civic Opera House, and the former central Chicago Post Office.
