Historic Homes: Rehabbed John Wellborn Root Home Wants $2.05M

October 29, 2014


Built in 1887, this four bedroom, four bathroom home was designed by famed architect John Wellborn Root. Partnering with Chicago city planner Daniel Burnham, Burnham and Root was one of the most prolific architecture outfits in the business back in the nineteenth century. The home has clearly been rehabbed, with very few, if any of its original 1800s finishes, however the home appears to be quite livable and is loaded up on amenities. Sporting an elevator, a large wine cellar and roof top deck, this historic Astor Street home can be had for $2.05 million.
