Vote On This Very Special Old Town Secret Garden Showdown

New, 13 comments

In today's edition of Real Estate Death Match, we compare two gorgeous Old Town homes with surprisingly large and elaborate back yard refuges. The homes in these Gold Coast listings have 4,500 square feet or more of living space, but what makes them really special is their enviable secret gardens. Take a long gander and let us know which home you would choose.


↑ 59 West Schiller Come step into this very special secret garden on Schiller Street, where you will be met with a back yard space designed by landscape architect Doug Hoerr. The home itself is an incredibly beautiful and impeccably refined four bed, four bath Parisian Rowhouse. There's absolute nothing to gripe over with this Old Town beauty, except perhaps its $3.15 million ask.


↑ 1330 N Cleveland For $2.5 million, you could be the proud owner of this incredible Old Town home with a backyard that could hold its own against any in the Gold Coast. Its outdoor space is perhaps more suited for entertaining than meditating, with plenty of seating for friends or family. In addition to its ground level outdoor offerings, the home also features a private rooftop deck with tremendous downtown views. This large five bedroom, five bath home contains 5,500 square feet of living space.
