An incredible greystone mansion on one of the most expensive streets in Chicago listed a less than two weeks ago. In the Gold Coast neighborhood, the majority of homes on North State Parkway are priced between $1 million and $5 million (although there is one currently at $10 million).
The four-story home comes with six bedrooms and bathrooms, which includes a two-bedroom in-law apartment. The exterior is made of smooth limestone, and typically, but not always, greystone homes are constructed with this material.
The home was originally built in 1873, but the entire interior was recently renovated. Some of the updates include a walnut herringbone floors throughout, subtly textured Venetian plaster walls, and new plaster molding.
There is a lot to gush over in this home—the light-filled, mid-level library and the secluded but sunny deck rooftop deck—but the kitchen is truly a dream. The French-inspired set-up is designed by the internationally recognized kitchen designer Mick deGuilio. It features elegant Herbeau fixtures, a wood-burning fireplace with a marble mantle (one of four in the home), and a glass conservatory that serves as a breakfast nook.
Located at 1245 North State Parkway, this home is listed for $3,750,000.
