Less than a block from the Irving Park Brown Line, this handsome 1907 brick firehouse has been transformed into a truly unique single family home. Just behind its functional and original red firehouse doors is a large space perfect for entertaining or displaying an art collection thanks to the lower level's 14-foot ceilings and an abundance of exposed brick. While the second level is more catered towards livability, it too is a great space to entertain thanks to its spacious open floor plan, rustic cabinetry, and a pair of kitchen counter-top beer taps fed by two independent barrels.
The 4,500-square-foot two-bedroom, three-bathroom property also comes with an attached two-car garage, an elevated outdoor deck, and a generously-sized wine cellar. The home just arrived on the market and is currently asking $1,350,000 which, depending on your budget, may or may not leave enough cash leftover to add the obligatory fire pole through the floor of your new master bedroom.
