To sum this house up on one word: Wow. Where do we start? Here’s a contemporary renovation of an old Tudor Revival that is not only respectful to the house and the surrounding community, but it’s also very functional. This is a great example of luxury finishes that are classic luxury—tasteful finishes and tones that aren’t over the top and aren’t going to go out of date in a few years.
It’d be interesting to see some before images to see the condition of the original interiors and to see how much this one has come along since it was last sold in October 2011 for $435,000. However, there are some original finishes still around, most notably an incredible stained glass piece at the bottom of the staircase.
From the curb appeal to the finely crafted kitchen to the solarium and back deck area, there’s a lot to like about this one. And with six bedroom and four and a half bathrooms spanning 6,000 square feet, there’s a lot of room here. The $1.299 million can’t buy a ostentatious French chateau-inspired behemoth in Lincoln Park, but it can get you a lot of house and a lot of look in Uptown.
