Property Description

This distinctive row house is located on a prime stretch of Professor Row houses at the edge of the University of Chicago campus. Designed in 1904 by NY firm, Mann, MacNeille and Lindeberg, this historic row is highly esteemed for its steeply pitched tile roofs and intricate brickwork on the facade with a raised diaper pattern. The home's approx. 3000 sf interior also has a notable history, remodeled by Keck & Keck and Marianne Willisch in 1950 and 1977 w/ built-in Art Moderne furniture throughout the home and a solarium off the dining room (with their trademark Thermopane glass and radiant heated floor) that overlooks a marvelous back deck & yard. The powder room on the 1st floor has wonderful Art Moderne vitriole Carrara glass tile, as does the sizable master bath w/separate areas for tub & shower. There are three full floors & a full basement w/wine cellar, laundry, storage & a Keck-designed family room w/ orig. fireplace & hutch. Copies of blueprints (1904 &1970) will transfer.
