1804 North Leavitt

Chicago, Illinois

Single Family Residence | 5 Bedrooms | 5 Baths | $4,000,000



Only so often is there a home so special, that even for those not looking, we are called to it. A rare combination of size, location, and architectural achievement, Leavitt House stands outwardly as a formidable urban fortress, but gives way inside to a three-story open atrium that floods the home with light; an oasis for the senses and respite from the day. This converted Bucktown warehouse stands on three city lots, a testament to modern adaptive reuse and sustainable housing. The centuries-old heavy timber beams, thick masonry walls, and high ceilings have been preserved and offer what today’s stick-built homes cannot; a historic charm this is at once grandiose and unassuming. This masterful renovation seeks not to emulate the past, but rather to build upon it while introducing modern design, technology, and finishes. An elevator services the entire home from the 1200-bottle wine cellar & theater on the lower floor, all the way up to the master suite and roof terrace. It’s easy to see why this home has been the location for countless commercial photoshoots, and with so many television filming requests, the house comes with its own booking agent should the new owner want the income. Standing just steps from the spire gardens, the winding gateway to the newly adapted 606 trail, the house feels intrinsically connected to a neighborhood that too has evolved and found new uses from its past, while embracing our modern lifestyles; and for one lucky Chicagoan, this icon can soon be called home.
