One-of-a-Kind Wicker Park Home Hits the Market

Glass Walls, Chicago Common Brick and a Nod to the Past for Just Under $2.2 Million

With its façade of common brick and large, arched garage door, you might think this Wicker Park home was once a firehouse. But this single-family residence now listed by Vincent Anzalone of Dream Town was built just 5 years ago—designed by the noted Chicago architecture firm Liederbach & Graham.

Inside, there’s a dramatic blend of industrial elements, textural contrasts and luxury finishes that come together with precision elegance and panache. Most striking perhaps are the two 2-story glass walls that overlook the private fenced backyard, the no-gloss plank wood floors, and the distinctive designs of the luxury kitchen and baths.

In this photo-illustrated article, owner Mimi Novak talks about the many unique choices that were made in her home’s design and construction. Read it on Crain’s Chicago Business or take a virtual tour of the property here.
