3921 N Ravenswood Avenue, Chicago, IL 

Firehouse Architecture for Sale on Chicago’s North Side

16_09243350_1_1464809060.0

We’ve all seen those films where the main character lives in a firehouse with exposed brick and several original firehouse features, right? Well there’s an ultra cool firehouse-turned-single-family-home on the north side, just off the Irving Park Brown Line.

This beauty was built in 1907 and was recently transformed into a unique space that’s perfect for families and singles alike. Featuring the original, functional firehouse doors, the space at ground level is perfect for entertaining or displaying artwork due to the 14-foot ceilings and ample exposed brick. The second level is more suited for living spaces, though the completely open floor plan, vintage built-ins, and beer-taps can also entertain quite nicely. Spoiler Alert: there isn’t a functional fire pole between the two levels, but adding one is definitely (mandatory) an option.

At 4,500 square-feet, this huge space has two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a two-car garage, a wine cellar, and a stunning, elevated outdoor deck.
