This spectacular Astor Street residence is a true embodiment of Gold Coast elegance. The home was originally designed by Joseph Lyman Silsbee, employer and mentor to Frank Lloyd Wright. This magni cent greystone radiates sophistication, paired with opulent, modern appointments. The history of the home is fascinating. Once an apartment building, then condos, the current owners completed a 3-plus year renovation, taking the home down to its exterior shell. Now, it has been completely restored to its former grandeur. A large addition was added, offering expansive spaces for both luxurious living and entertaining. Many original 1891 elements were restored so they could remain in the home, including a fully restored main foyer, still intact with original rift-sawn oak carvings, paneling, and gorgeous marble. The main staircase, with carved Oak newel posts and wainscoting was also restored, and some additional materials were thoughtfully recycled into the rebuilt design, such as corbels used in the construction of the theatre. The attached two car garage is an added bonus for ease. This is a true Astor Street splendor.
