Vintage at its BEST! Building designed by John A. Nyden and completed in 1917 as one of the earliest buildings in the area constructed on the landfill from the Great Chicago Fire. The brick and terra-cotta facade building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. The 3900 square foot residence underwent a 13 month masterful renovation by 23 trades. Truly old world artisans restored many of the original items as well as added new features like hand laid plaster ceiling inlays. Step into your secure, private, key only access elevator to a full floor residence. Your private foyer is decorated with original marble flooring and baseboards, English wallpaper, large cove molding and a ceiling embellished with bell-flowered plaster onlays. Enter the secure door into the gallery which is flanked by Honduran mahogany and tastefully lit with LED up lighting showcasing the 19th century French Empire style plaster onlays. Move to the front of the home into the Living Room decorated in vibrant Williamsburg yellow paint with white poplar onlays. This room has a fully renovated, remote controlled fireplace with white Italian marble surround hand carved in France in the 18th century. Double Mahogany doors lead you to the spacious and comfortable Great Room, also finished with Williamsburg yellow paint and poplar onlays. Across from the Great Room is the Library with views of Lake Michigan. Paneled in Honduran Mahogany, the room is filled with plenty of shelves for book collectors, a dry bar with cabinetry and a gas fireplace. The spacious second bedroom and full Bathroom with Kohler hand painted sink can be closed off with 2 doors to create its own private suite, ideal for guests. Moving back through the Gallery, with closets and powder room disguised behind matching mahogany panels, you arrive at the Dining Room. The walls and flooring match the design and layout of the Living Room. The kitchen is just off the Dining Room and has a French Country design aesthetic. Counters and backsplash are Gray granite. Under cabinet lighting and upper, ceiling height cabinets provide ample storage. The Primary Bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom, gas fireplace and custom walk in closet. The third bedroom contains its own en-suite bathroom and is one of many places with lead diamond pattern with Belgium etched glass for privacy. There are 3 zones of air conditioning as well as most rooms have thermostatic controlled radiators for zoned heating. There are also 2 electronic air cleaners for air purification and to assist in dust accumulation. The entire residence has been wired and plumbed to pair a beautiful 19th century aesthetic with 21st century requirements, including all new copper wiring, all new copper plumbing, wireless internet and set up of iPad controlled Smart Home functionality. Rental parking available across the street at 200 E Delaware.
