Located at the northwest corner of Leavitt and Barry in Chicago’s North Center/Roscoe Village neighborhood, this old commercial storefront turned quirky single family home has a lot to offer. Originally built in 1908, the structure is flooded with natural light thanks to a mosaic glass brick wall and multiple skylights.
These details—combined with a retro hanging fireplace, exposed brickwork, and overhead timber beams—provide a healthy dose of old-school coolness to the home’s large living room. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex also sports an updated kitchen, attached garage, and gallery-like barrel vaulted hallways.
The home features a private rooftop deck and is close to both Hamlin Park and the soon-to-be overhauled riverfront trails of the Lathrop Homes. The property listed for $750,000 in early 2011 before ultimately selling for $675,000 later that fall. The unusual home returned to the market today and is currently asking $869,000.
