Contemporary architecture with timeless finishes across 6,000 square feet of continuous living space. Located in Wicker Park's coveted landmark district, a tree-dappled Chicago neighborhood marked by community and recreational pursuits, this stunning single-family home was originally constructed in 1885 and still boasts its painstakingly restored brick Italianate facade to this day. As part of a full gut renovation, design and build, award-winning architectural firm dSPACE tuck-pointed the entire building and added lined roof parapets before initiating a top-to-bottom interior plan to include 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a streamlined kitchen with butler's pantry, a fully finished basement, a two-car garage, and a children's play space -among other flex spaces. From the foyer and salon to the formal dining room and handsome wet bar, the main level maintains an effortless flow that leads to an open, natural light-filled space at the back of the house. Here, a chef's kitchen with a massive island, Miele cooktop, a separate space for a breakfast table, and integrated wine tower extends into a game-changing, double-height, glass-encased addition featuring a great room with a double-sided fireplace and a proper mudroom. Upstairs, the second floor holds the master suite complete with fireplace and an ensuite bath with freestanding tub, a modest library and a loft office. On the third floor, three additional bedrooms, two baths, a second laundry and a playroom reside. And thanks to a higher zoning that was grandfathered in, and an empty easterly lot next-door (zoned as green space by the city), unobstructed views and plenty of privacy are part of the package. Out back, a generous deck overlooks the home's meticulously landscaped backyard. A second patio adjacent to the garage and a new outdoor lighting system round out the open-air entertaining amenities. With flawless finishes, fully integrated smart home status and sustainable design-all just a 10 minute commute from downtown-1935 West Schiller is an investment in the good life.
