Location: Chicago, Illinois
Price: $6.385 million
Designed by notable architect David Adler and built in 1915, this stately home is luxury Windy City at its best. The original owner of the property, American artist Abram Poole Jr., had the home designed to include a grand gallery room, where he could display his paintings. Much of Poole’s work now hangs at the Art Institute of Chicago.
The current owners purchased this row house in 2016 and gave it a complete overhaul to restore its historical integrity. The person who did the work “really paid attention to preserving the architectural detail,” said Katherine Malkin, a broker associate from Compass, who is representing the property. “They gave it the beauty and glory, and then put every convenience that everyone would want for today.”
Details include a restored winding oval staircase and skylights. The main entryway, for example, features carved rams’ heads and garland swags and Carrara marble tile floors.
Modern ease comes in the form of a stylish breakfast nook well-suited for the harried family, a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen and a multi-car garage.
This newly renovated 10,000-square-foot property has six bedrooms, four full bathrooms and three half bathrooms.
The updated home features an exercise room, theater room, laundry room, three-car garage and a terrace. The kitchen includes Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. There are four fireplaces. The bathrooms have heated floors.
The Georgian-style townhouse is one of several properties of the Lakeview Avenue Row House District, built for eclectic artists and intellectuals of the time.
The park-view home neighbors the Elks National Memorial and Headquarters and is less than two blocks from the lake in the picturesque neighborhood of Lincoln Park. This upscale area is known for its charming tree-lined streets, nightlife, restaurants, boutiques and the city’s finest museums including the Chicago History Museum, Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and the DePaul Art Museum.
