Built 1885
This exquisite historic Queen Anne and Romanesque style property located in Chicago's vibrant Streeterville neighborhood, in the heart of Northwestern Memorial Hospital medical district, and steps away from Michigan Avenue and Lake Michigan consists of 13,000 square feet of living space - an empty canvas ready to become its next masterpiece. Built in 1885 by Edwin F. Getchell who purchased the land from the estate of William B. Ogden, Chicago's first mayor, then hired prominent architecture firm, Burling & Whitehouse, to design the original four-level property. The property was later purchased and inhabited by renowned American portrait painter George Peter Alexander Healy, most famous for his portrayals of eminent persons including Abraham Lincoln, John Quincy Adams, Ulysses Grant, and The Peacemakers. In the 1970's, an addition was constructed to include such amenities as the outdoor deck, garden, sunroom and a 3-car garage, when it was used as a live/work property, with offices on the first 2 levels, and the owner's residence on the upper 2 levels, until current ownership purchased it in 2021 for investment purposes, and it now awaits the next chapter of a long and intriguing history.
