Midcentury modern homes are a challenge to find in city limits. But that’s not the only reason why this duplex in Lincoln Park is rare—it’s located in a building designed by architect Harry Weese.
In Chicago, Weese is known for the Time-Life skyscraper, the circular Seventeenth Church of Christ, and the sloping River Cottages. The modernist architect railed against the popular International Style and Miesian copycats of the time.
This 23-unit condo building was constructed in 1965 at the peak of his career. The two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom duplex comes with ebony-stained hardwood floors, two private terraces just off both bedrooms, and large square windows.
A thoughtful kitchen renovation brought blonde wood, white countertops, cabinets with minimal hardware, and glass globe light fixtures. Plus an all new master bathroom with a stone and glass shower, indirect lighting, and a floating vanity.
The assessments for 235 West Eugenie Street Unit T4 run at about $299 per month. Love what you see? The midcentury modern stunner is listed for $500,000.
