Uniquely special in every way, this home with a private pool is a stunning example of world-class design. Perched above a gourmet market in Printers Row, a neighborhood with National Register of Historic Places status, the home was developed, designed and constructed by Filoramo Talsma Architecture to afford incredible exposure and sight lines to Dearborn Station.
The exterior finds definition from masonry construction and a steel-and-terra cotta sunscreen by Fabrik that harnesses light and shadow. Inside, the first level features a sleek foyer, a stylish vestibule/mudroom with smart storage and bench seating, and attached access to the home’s heated, oversized two-car garage (can accommodate a lift for additional parking). The main floor is devoted to this home’s spectacular living and entertaining spaces – a double-height living room, a modern kitchen, a dining room that can house an exceptionally long table, a family room, and 2,000 sq ft of private outdoor space.
Accessed via a sliding glass wall system, the terrace features designated dining and lounge spaces, perennial landscaping, and a stainless steel swimming pool by Diamond Spas that can be heated to 900 for year-round use. The striking chef’s kitchen features custom Italian cabinets and Carrara marble/stainless steel countertops by Arclinea, Wolf/Miele/Sub-Zero appliances, a back kitchen for added prep space, and a massive island with bar seating. Luxe residential living just a few steps away from the full tilt of the city’s core commercial and business district, 747 S. Dearborn Street is an elevated, urban dwelling for the homeowner who appreciates cutting-edge architecture and uncompromising comfort.
