Description

Architecturally significant true loft - one of Lakeview's hidden gems! Designed by Chicago's very own Larry Booth of Booth Hansen Architects detailed this factory into the ultimate single family luxe residence. This home showcases soaring ceilings, an abundance of natural light, cool open spaces, and even has a swimming pool. All come together to create an amazing property that rivals the most discerning eye. Beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces engulf the home with beauty behind the fence which keeps the world guessing this is even a single-family home. Upon entering, main entry sets a wonderful elemental tone for the home. Heated concrete floors throughout the main level are a welcome accompaniment to the raw brick walls and factory roots of yesteryear. The kitchen is an entertainer's dream, with two huge islands, a 48' range/ hood, plus custom built-ins and south exposure that leads out to a private garden. The living-dining spaces are right out of a movie set with a steel surround fireplace and open space galore. The perfect live-work situation, a studio space with its own entry and kitchen can be accessed from this location, perfect for all of your Live/Work needs. The second floor is comprised of a wonderfully oversized primary suite, complete with a private deck that has tree lined landscape views of George Street. The ensuite spa like bathroom with soaking tub, separate shower and dual vanities, makes for an amazing respite, and a clothier's dream walk-in closet completes the room. Three more bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms, and a laundry room round out the second floor of living space. The pool is accessed from this level as is the roof top where the factory's original smokestack provides access to the roof, with ability to build more interior/exterior space. An attached two car garage is the icing on the cake. An absolute gem for those wanting a modern, unique home walking to all Southport Corridor has to offer and in the Harriett Tubman elementary district.
