    A classic, family-friendly home that also lends itself well to formal entertaining, the historic Chicago brownstone features high-ceilinged rooms tastefully renovated by designer Marvin Herman to maximize on the building's old world charm. Grand staircases sweep from the foyer through the stately dining and living areas, which feature expansive entryways, grand pillars and inlaid wood. An in-home library is equally rich in detail, while several formal sitting rooms are opulently designed with deep, bright colors and luxurious finishes. The master suite occupies the second floor, while family bedrooms are situated on floors above. A European-style kitchen is built for the working chef, with a butcher-block island, overhead storage, a wine vault and classic, black-and-white tiled floor. Finally, a tastefully-manicured roof-top terrace lends itself to dining al fresco, a perfect vantage point for city views. View the property.
