Here’s a chance to snag a (small) piece of the iconic Frank Fisher Studio Houses. The compact Gold Coast duplex is listed for under $300,000.
The landmark property is known as one of Chicago’s best examples of the Art Moderne style. Designed in 1936 by architects Andrew Rebori and Edgar Miller for Marshall Field’s Frank Fisher Jr., the structure was protected with a landmark designation in 1996 and converted into condos four years later.
This particular residence has a bright two-story living room with a wood-burning fireplace on a stepped-up brick mantel. The modest one-bedroom, one-bathroom home has a beautiful winding staircase with the notable curved corners of the Art Moderne style. The best perk of living in one of the Frank Fisher units is the beautiful courtyard on the other side of the bright red door—there’s a brick-paved patio shielded by a vine-covered wall.
1209 N. State Parkway Unit 4 is listed for $295,000.
