Henry Rohkam House Returns to the Market in Lake View

New, 3 comments

One of the North Side's most unique homes came back on the market this week. It isn't listed on the MLS yet, but Crain's reported this morning that the Henry Rohkam House at 1048 W. Oakdale in Lake View is back on the market, and it's priced at $3.2 million -- down from the previous price of $3.9 million, according to listing agent Rodolfo Zavala. Although the architecture probably won't appeal to everyone, it is certainly eye-catching, and Zavela says that the 1887 home has been completely restored and "done in high Victorian" by the current owners. Th 6,000-square-foot home was built for Henry Rohkam, one of the founders of Northwest Terra Cotta, and Rohkam put the company's wares on full display. In addition to those striking stepped gables, there are allegorical panels on the side of the home, one of which depicts a woman at a spinning wheel. Zavala says the home sits on 3.5 city lots, and it comes with a 2,000-square-foot coach house.
