Located in the heart of the south side's Historic Prairie Avenue District and just steps from the Clark House Museum, this recently-listed rowhouse can speak to both traditional and contemporary tastes. Despite its 2005 construction date, the home manages to conceal its newness and fit in with many of its historic neighbors thanks to details like rounded window bump-outs on the first and second floor and the arched Richardsonian third-floor windows tops.
At four stories and 5,300 square feet, the sprawling home includes three bedrooms, four full baths, two half-baths, and a private elevator. The massive chef’s kitchen and dining area is particularly handsome thanks to its clean lines, thick countertops, and unique "floating" central island. The generous master suite occupies the home’s entire second floor and features massive closets and a spa style bathroom with white book-matched marble.
The general decorating is a successful marriage of traditional and modern styles and sports muted gray tones, a contemporary staircase, and lots of classic mid-century touches like Eames and Barcelona chairs. The property, which also includes two outdoor patios and garage parking for two vehicles, can be had for $2,175,000.
