Mosaics and Stained Glass Embellish Custom $1.5M Edgar Miller Home in Old Town

New, 3 comments


You know it's a unique property when the dramatic living room with custom, multi-story stained glass and a fireplace, is far from the most unique aspect of the home. There are more quirks inside this Old Town 4 bed/4 bath than a square block of bungalows. Part of the Carl Street Studios, an 1880's Victorian mansion rehabbed by SAIC artists Sol Kogen and Edgar Miller in the '20s, the two-story space boasts towering more stained glass windows, built-in furniture and bonkers mosaics, including a multi-hued staircase. There's even a sizable private terrace with great views and plenty of space for a rooftop garden. Numerous condos from this building have been on and off the market over the last few years, and a similar multi-unit space was on the market for $1.8M a few years ago, but if you want a funky, artist-designed home, this is an opportunity that rarely presents itself.
