Built in 1891 for Charles Vallette Kasson by famed architect brothers Pond & Pond, this home was designed for grand entertaining, yet hidden in plain site to create a sense of privacy. Sitting on a rare 50 foot lot on one of Chicago's most prestigious streets, this has been meticulously maintained by the same family since 1958. Today, the home is a blank canvas ready for the next artist to make their mark. Renovation plans by architect Chip von Weise have been approved by The Commission of Chicago Landmarks to transform this into a 10,000sf+ home for modern living. Bring your developer, designer, and creative eye (please note, the new owner does not have to execute these renovation plans if they do not want to). Basement would make for an excellent apartment, au pare suite, in-law quarters, or AirBnB. Throw a summer soiree or relax in the sun from the one-of-a-kind private garden. Walking distance to the best restaurants in Chicago, entertainment, and Lake Michigan!
