Tucked away on Dickens Avenue in Bucktown lies this unassuming stone building that has been completely reworked into a contemporary home by architect Richard Blender. According to the listing agent, the building was home to a church, and more recently, was a yoga studio. However, now it is a super contemporary single family home decked out with Far East influences at every corner. Originally built in 1900, the 5,800 square foot space now contains four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. The home sports custom-made fixtures and furnishings, and includes a rather unique master bedroom and bath. Outside, the yard has a zen-like feel with its contrasting stone, grass and wood elements. The backyard features an outdoor kitchen and plenty of room for friends and family. This architectural gem can be had for $2.5 million.
