modern living in Chicago's favorite neighborhood
Design-forward and customized from end-to-end, 1708 North Mohawk is a 6,300-square-foot, 6 bed/7 bath single-family home brimming with both historic character and modern conveniences. Situated in a premier East Lincoln Park location, this home's historic, pre-Chicago Fire brick facade has been meticulously maintained. Inside, the entire house received a full-gut renovation by award-winning architect Jonathan Ginnis to integrate first-class fixtures and sustainable finishes - and a fresh, expanded program emphasizing visual connectivity and vertical fluidity. The focal point of the home is immediately apparent upon entry - a dramatic, three-story, floating staircase with an atrium that floods the home with natural light and beckons you in. That staircase also provides a physical separation for the living and dining rooms which feature clear maple quarter-sawn wide-plank flooring, a wood-burning fireplace and a built-in buffet with a precast concrete countertop. The main floor continues towards the rear of the home with an open-concept space that's perfect for elevated entertaining and easy, everyday living. A stunning chef's kitchen (featuring Miele, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, custom Henrybuilt bamboo cabinetry, natural stone countertops, two large islands) and a spacious family room with a second fireplace lead to one-step access to the home's private bluestone terrace and a raised deck above the garage. On the second level, an office and a den are organized in an open plan that cultivates and celebrates togetherness. The primary suite lives on the second level as well, featuring custom built-ins, a large walk-in closet, and a statement-making en-suite bath with honed stone floors, a floating dual vanity, a soaking tub, and a standalone steam shower. The third level presents three secondary bedrooms, a sitting area and an art studio. But there's more. This home's lower level reveals a fully finished rec/media room with yet another fireplace, a custom bar, an en-suite bedroom for guests, and a mudroom. Additional details and amenities include a carefully curated selection of lighting from Flos, Leucos and more, three wood-burning/gas-start Rumford high-efficiency fireplaces, radiant floor heat throughout, 11 total skylights, second-floor laundry, custom built-ins, a state-of-the-art Crestron/Lutron system for integrated A/V, lighting, security and HVAC controls, and substantial closet/storage space spread across the home and an attached, radiant-heated 2.5-car garage. Walking distance to Lincoln Park proper, the lakefront, and shopping and dining along Halsted St. and Armitage Ave. - not to mention located within the coveted Lincoln School District - 1708 North Mohawk exemplifies refined, modern living in Chicago's favorite neighborhood.
