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.
The five bathrooms provide convenient access throughout the home. The three full baths adjoin bedrooms including the master suite. There is also a powder room on the main floor, and an additional powder room on the lower level.
The home is wired for your entertainment and your convienece. Secured property access and a camera system keep your home private. Lighting and shades are easily controlled. The home has audio throughout and a dedicated home theater, all connected to a tech room on the lower level.
1804 North Leavitt is designed with an attention to detail, both inside and out.
