Cool Property

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.

16_09243350_11_1464809064.0

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.

About Lincoln Park – Choose Chicago:

In Lincoln Park, Chicago’s motto urbs in horto—or “City in a Garden”—truly comes to life. Historic churches and handsome brick row houses nestled within landmark districts sit next to peaceful parks, while quiet, tree-lined residential areas give way to bustling business corridors.

Armitage Avenue is lined with independent boutiques and high-end retailers; Clark Street is packed with casual cafes, ethnic restaurants and sweet shops that spill out onto the sidewalks during warm weather; and Lincoln Avenue buzzes all night with bars and taverns that cater to the young college crowd from the nearby DePaul University campus. In addition to shopping and dining, Lincoln Park is a diverse arts and entertainment destination as well with a plethora of museums, top theaters and live music clubs to pick from.

For scenery, there’s plenty of natural beauty and outdoors to enjoy. This North Side neighborhood’s namesake park is a sprawling 1,208 acres of green space with a free zoo open year-round, a nature museum and conservatory. And when the weather’s right, head over to the lakefront trail and beaches, where sand and surf are set against a backdrop of downtown skyscrapers.
