Haute Residence: A Spectacular Lincoln Park Home Just Shy of $10 Million

Haute Residence 4

It’s hard to know what to highlight first at 2230 N. Wayne Street. Perhaps its the expansive 9,500 square feet, which don’t feel a bit cramped on its three-lot parcel on the northwest border of Lincoln Park. Or maybe its the myriad extras, like an exercise room, media room, game room, study, elevator, and (gasp!) three-car garage. Or the fact that the house, listed at $9.9 million, was conceived by famed designer Steven Gambrel and notable architecture firm Liederbach and Graham, in the style of the late David Adler.

The home’s listing agent, Katherine Malkin of Baird & Warner, who calls the home one of the most distinctive homes she’s seen in her 40-year career, begins with the details. “The house is customized literally down to the hinges,” she says. “All of the hardware in the house–the door handles, cabinet hardware, and door hinges–were specially made. The flooring is French antique wood that’s been brought in and laid in different patterns throughout the house. The ceilings are also high, and combined with the fact that the house in on such a big lot, that gives the entire home a wonderful sense of light.”

Malkin also can’t help but rave about the kitchen, the centerpiece of which is a double Bonnet range. “It’s the same one chef Daniel Boulud uses,” she points out. “It’s a dream kitchen for a chef.”

In fact, the 5-bedroom home, which was built in 2011, has so many unique and one-of-a-kind details that the original design team is in Chicago this week to walk Malkin through it, ensuring that she (and thus the home’s future occupant) is aware of the craftsmanship and thoughtfulness that occupy every corner of the space.

If you’re worried that a house this special might feel a bit too over-the-top, don’t be. “The house is not fussy,” says Malkin. “It’s just extraordinarily well detailed.”
