Description

BACK ON MARKET! DEAL FELL THROUGH! New price reflects a new roof. The "GREEN HOUSE" - featured in the New York Times, the Discovery Channel, Crains and Natural Home Magazine, to name a few, is the epitome of green, sustainable architecture in Chicago and is now available for you to own this truly one-of-kind home. Originally designed as an art project in an effort to live sustainably in an environmentally responsible house, this home harvests energy from solar, wind and geothermal sources. Ultra modern, multi-functional floor plan with open loft-style living, currently being used as a 2 bedroom plus office, as well as a massive, phenomenal artist's studio. Designed to accommodate many lifestyles and can easily be converted into a more traditional 5 bedroom, or used as an ideal work/live space for artists or small businesses to bring in their teams or store inventory. Go past the unassuming front entryway and be amazed as you take in the soaring 17' high ceilings (yes, 17'!) and a center courtyard that floods this home with incredible natural light from every angle. Sliding glass doors on all interior openings around center courtyard create a seamless link of inside and outside spaces providing a sense of calm and fresh ventilation. Locally sourced products and materials are used extensively throughout the home, including honey-blonde elm hardwood flooring milled from fallen Chicago trees. Other sustainable materials include: recycled HDPE decking, Xeriscape green roof with edible plants and succulents, 360-gallon rainwater collecting cisterns, self-watering greenhouse "Earth Boxes", compost bins, recyclable metal siding, LED lighting throughout, 100% recycled and formaldehyde-free insulation, Energy Star appliances, low flow showers, dual flush toilets, recycled ceramic tile, and artisanal glazed bricks on the unassuming modern front facade. Home is fully electric except for kitchen gas range, and is powered by solar panel arrays and wind turbines imported from Finland, on a tiered system that uses all energy onsite before importing. Heating and cooling systems consist of Geothermal radiant flooring and HVAC, Solargenix thermal panels, tankless hot water heaters and a free-standing wood burning fireplace imported from Germany. A recovery ventilation system that pulls fresh air from the exterior and pushes stale air out is in place, providing a constant flow of clean air. Kitchen completely remodeled in 2017 with modern white cabinetry and seamless stainless steel counters, backsplash and integrated sink. New shower fixtures, lighting and mirror in the main bath, which includes a steam shower as an additional sustainable element. Main level was freshly painted and radiant concrete floors refinished in 2022. Custom 17' electronic floor-to-ceiling drapes installed in 2017 and custom roller shades installed in 2020. Custom closet organizers. Ramped first floor entry. Two car attached garage. This hot West Town location is where everyone wants to be - close to all the restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries that make this neighborhood so unique. Close to the Blue Line, easy access to the Kennedy and a quick commute to the loop. Check out the 3D tour! Comprehensive descriptions, floor plans, drawings and media coverage in "Additional Info". Must come to see what this incredible home has to offer. Book your in-person or virtual tour today before it's gone!
