Extra wide, ultra notable Astor Street home, originally built in the 1890's, and completely reconfigured in 1930. Throughout its existence, this home has been touched by some of Chicago's most notable families and architects. Chicago census records showed that the home was first occupied by B.E. Sunny, the president of Illinois Bell at the turn of the last century, and best remembered for his gift of the "Sunny Gymnasium" at the University of Chicago. The property was purchased in the 1930's, by architect James Eppenstien who transformed the property into an international style home for modern living, which was a rare find in the Gold Coast at the time and is certainly what it exudes today. In the late 90's the current owners commissioned award winning architect Rugo Raff who received the "Excellence in Restoration" award from the City of Chicago. Upon entry to the home, the classic Deco styling is evident in the curved granite, granite ribbed glass, and terrazzo flooring. The main level of the home is opulent in its width, with gorgeous parquet style flooring. Made for entertaining, the kitchen and dining rooms are perfect. Lovely finishes throughout. These 6300 square feet this is a wonderful piece of Chicago History in the most outstanding Gold Coast location and includes a theater room, gym/additional bedroom, a roof top deck, and multiple outdoor spaces. The back yard can easily be parking.
