Year Purchased: 1982
About the owner: I live on the top floor of this building, which my husband, an architect, and I bought thirty years ago. We have enjoyed living here and renting to interesting people who share our love of this Mediterranean style vintage brick building. It's on a corner of two quiet streets, but only minutes from lively areas on the north side where I grew up.
Why the Owner Chose Rogers Park: We bought this building because of its location in a real Chicago neighborhood, its proximity to music and theatre events in the center city and the north shore,
and because we love to take walks and see people from all different backgrounds enjoying the park. Cycling paths are nearby, and O'Hare airport is a short drive away. We call it 'the old country' because so many people we meet who have moved way out to the suburbs are from this area, and remember it with fondness. Young people are once again moving here, and it's great to see all ages, all kinds of people living together in these vintage buildings.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: We had been renting a large apartment of the same vintage (1928) just east of here, and when we decided to buy a building we discovered this area, just a mile from our apartment. We called it 'Brigadoon' because it just seemed to appear one day -- it had 'old world charm' and Mediterranean arches and ironwork. The apartments were flooded with light from tall windows with no other buildings nearby (on a corner). We completely rewired the building and improved the kitchens, and the final touch is completing the lst level apartment that we are offering for vacation and short term rentals. We enjoy our tree-lined street, the shady backyard with a new trellis and hope you will, too.
