Ames Group Chicago is pleased to present this gorgeous Gold Coast home. Set on a 35-foot-wide lot, this 9,750-square-foot home was designed in the 1880s in a Richardsonian Romanesque style for merchant Benjamin Felix. In the 1920s, the Victorian-era interior was updated in a Georgian Revival architectural style and the back of the home was enlarged. In the early 2000s, the home was lovingly renovated by Dudley Ross Interiors with every detail in millwork, tile, fabrics, paint, and glaze painstakingly executed.This six-bedroom home features eight full baths and three half baths, 10 fireplaces, a passenger elevator, a penthouse conservatory, and a lower level staff apartment.1441 N. State is located on a prestigious residential block in Chicago's historic Gold Coast neighborhood. This desirable stretch of State Street is distinguished by its mature trees, planted parkways, and stock of vintage and upscale homes.The Gold Coast grew in the wake of the Great Chicago Fire. In 1882, land baron Potter Palmer and his wife Bertha moved to the area from Millionaire's Row on Prairie Avenue on the city's South Side. He filled in a swampy area which later became Lake Shore Drive, and built their Henry Ives-Cobb-designed ''castle'' on Lake Shore Drive. Potter purchased large tracts of land in the area, developed dozens of large-scale stone and brick mansions, and then sold them to other wealthy Chicagoans who followed the Potters into the neighborhood.The Gold Coast's residential oasis is ideally situated near a wealth of fabulous neighborhood and city amenities. Upscale dining and nightlife on both Wells and Rush, live music, and park and lake front recreation are all just blocks away. It is a short drive to the North & Clybourn Shopping Corridor, and several grocers as well as the Division Street Farmers Market are conveniently close.The home is within the highly rated Ogden Elementary School and Lincoln Park High School attendance areas. Excellent private schools, including the Latin School of Chicago and Catherine Cook School, are close by.Transportation options are convenient. The CTA's 22 and 36 buses offer a quick ride to the Loop, it is walking distance to the Clark/Division Red Line subway station, and there is easy access to Lake Shore Drive.If you think this home might be right for you, please call or email us.
