A 4-Bedroom “Modernist Dream” in the East Village: 915 N. Wolcott

For those of you who are contemporary lovers, this Studio Dwell designed 4-bedroom single family home at 915 N. Wolcott in the East Village neighborhood of West Town has been on the market since April 2011.

915-n-wolcott.jpg

It has been reduced $200,000 in that time.

At 4700 square feet, it has the modern aesthetic found in Studio Dwell properties.

The kitchen which has what looks to be a wall of glass also has modern white and stainless steel cabinetry and what looks like might be concrete counter tops (does anyone know?)

3 out of the 4 bedrooms are on the second floor with the master bedroom on the third floor.

There is also a 18×13 home theater in the lower level.

The house has several outdoor spaces including a stone patio off the kitchen and a rooftop deck of some kind (off the bedroom?)

Will the sales price ultimately be under the 2005 purchase price on this minimalist home?

Stephen Somogyi at North Clybourn Group has the listing. See the pictures here.

  1. I like it except for the deck being off of the master bedroom

    Although I think there’s a gator deck

    I also like the decorations for the kids rooms, the rooms look fun unlike the craptastic farmhouse letters with the kids name and bright paint you usually see in rooms with cribs in this city

  2. Owners are trying to sell before the place becomes even more tired looking. Anyways, yes it’ll sell for closer to a million, possible 950,000, if they find a buyer who isn’t turned off by the design.

  3. I love this. If it was north of Augusta and closer to Wicker Park or in LP or Bucktown, I would buy it…even for more money. Why doesn’t Studio Dwell build these in better locations?

  4. This part of east village is very nice. I wonder how the kids faired in the hood however. (aside from the schools–which were or were soon to be private) I think it would be harder to have neighborhood friends and a tough sell to have friends visit from east of the expressway.

    GatorDeck, but only in one direction, as the garages for the neighboring condos cut off the view of the gators in the N-S alley.

  7. Wow. beautiful.

    If the private practice job market wasn’t so terrible in chicago i’d be tempted to expunge whatever trust money i’ve got left and buy this place. I don’t think my salary would be enough to pay utilities and taxes and still manage to feed myself though. I could probably ignore the blah neighborhood ; why would you even want to go outside?

  8. Is there any other desirable (hot etc.) place in the city were you could get 4,700 sqf feet for under $300 a foot? Well designed none the less. It looks like they did a great job mitigating the alley location. I love the exterior it feels very insulated.

  10. Interesting looking house. I wonder how people will view it 20 years from now though. If I had the kind of money to buy this place, I would probably plan to hang onto it until I was elderly and the mortgage was long paid off. Otherwise, I would worry that in a few years people’s tastes would change and this would look as ugly to future generations as the 1970s complexes look to us now.

  12. Sonies,

    you’re right, didn’t realize this was that far up on Damen, was thinking it was a bit closer to 290. I think anything past damen/chicago towards bucktown is a pretty decent ‘hood, but you do see a ton of graffiti on a lot of the new development along damen leading up to division. I love division as well, i know it’s a bit of the ‘brah’ crowd but there are some legit restaurants and bars there.

    Bob,

    it’s nearly 5k square feet and is very well built. I’d say this house would definitely net more than 1.5 mil if it was a few blocks up on damen towards bucktown, so i think anything from 1-1.2 mil is a reasonable price given the size and build quality. If i was in a position to buy i’d probably offer 1 mil for it and see what happens.

    $950K is crazy talk.

    $200/Foot for this? i can’t see it going for under $250 when you factor everything in.

    $1.175MM is bearish IMHO. probably goes for more than that. done at $1.3MM is my guess.

  21. maybe so, anonny, but this just looks very, very well done to me. that’s all i can say.

    the more i look the more i love.

    love the layout. love the kitchen. the master suite is perfect imho. that master bath is one of the best i’ve ever seen, combined with the outdoor space up top…talk about a private sanctuary. love the outdoor spaces (yes that rooftop deck is off the master and it is huge…not to mention the huge deck off the second level, and the outdoor space off the main level). the lower level is perfect. sauna, move room, with a playroom that could easily be considered a 5th bedroom.

    IF i’m in the market for a 4 bedroom in the city, this would be near the top of the list.

    done at $1.3MM all day long. only question is the flexibility of the seller.

  23. re: 1935

    You’d be right on Lincoln (it is not crazy busy at that point but still. No roof deck. The interior design here is terrible and hard to look past. Very little vintage feel remaining (except for the stair case) and over-all just a little blah. I guess the question is would you like to live in Lincoln park in a nice but less than perfect place that needs alot to feel finished or would you like to live in west town in a home where people are taken a-back? I am sure many would choose Lincoln, but these are not comps IMHO.

    Sure, better if north of Augusta, east of Wood, but it’s still only a 15 minute walk to the Division stop, which means your total commute time is about the same as a 5 minute walk from Jeff Park stop, which is a pretty small circle. And there’s a lot more to walk to from this place than there is from *most* of your beloved NW Side.

    This isn’t my favorite neighborhood, but there is actually stuff to walk to around here. I have relatives with kids in the far nw hoods. They can take a nice walk around the block, but they don’t walk anywhere else, except to the blue line, which is pretty much an hour door to door to the loop for them (obviously depends a bit where you live and work, but it’s a long commute). They drive (or sometimes bike) pretty much everywhere else.

    haven’t been on the chicago ave bus in about 10-12 years, but remember it was not pleasant. and i dont think its lighting fast with only one inch of snow on the ground. shoot even if it rains add 15% time to your commute if its by bus. I F’ing hate the bus.

  37. I grew up in the Peterson Park area and now live in the south loop and I find the commute very easy. The houses on the NW side are very nice and unique and the neighborhood was very safe. I still prefer living closer to the loop. I drive to work in River North and arrive in 15 minutes. I still depend on my car since I can’t stand the CTA.

    I agree with Groove that the far NW side is probably nicer than a lot of the areas closer to the loop, but I just can’t stand the long commute. I’m picky in that the most time I want to spend commuting is 20 minutes each way.

    But your carbon footprint is disastrous. My relatives do live farther away, it’s a good 12-14 min walk from harlem stop, and another 5-7 to work, which puts them v close to an hour assuming a few min of wait time. Still, I think 50 min from say norwood park would be pretty standard.

    also take my words with a grain of salt as i dont commute to the loop.

    I will always live 30 minutes or less from work. so my view is not of the typical sorts. if it takes 35 mintues on average then i will move :)

  45. You need four bedrooms for no more than $1.3 million? Buy a rowhouse or smaller SFH in LP east of Halsted or an even bigger and nicer SFH in LV, or spend more like $1.0 million on a condo in the northeast GC, ELP, LVE or north Sville and allocate the difference to assessments. Otherwise, take the $1.3 to the east side of Evanston/Wilmette and call it a day.

  51. valid point, Groove (and i really have never entered the whole debate you reference)

    but i find if funny that numerous people on here seem to think that access to public transportation is high on the list of important consideration for anyone buying in the $1MM+ range.

    honest question: of any 100 potential buyers for a $1MM+ property in your NW side hoods, how many would you say actually give ANY consideration to the fact that they can hop the blue line to O’Hare?
    or, for another often-cited example, that they’re just a block/two walk to a bus stop where they can then get to the Brown line to then get to the Loop.

    i would venture to guess that, at this specific price point and up, maybe 1 or 2 out of 100 would actually value this added “convenience”.

    because for people who make serious dough, it is not actually a convenience at all.

    these people take cabs/car service or they drive to O’Hare.
    and they don’t do a bus-to-train CTA commute to the Loop every day either. because on average you don’t save any time at all to use the CTA like this.

    point is: at a certain price point in Chicago, convenience to the CTA simply doesn’t matter. because it is not the Metra, which can actually save you TONS of time relative to driving the farther out you go. the CTA is MOST efficient the closer you are to the Loop, whereas the Metra is completely the opposite.

    from a time=money perspective, the CTA doesn’t compute and $1MM+ home buyers generally have a time=money perspective.

    all jmho.

    It doesn’t compute in the far nw side, that’s part of the point. In logan or btown where you can be 25 min true door to door, I’d rather do that than drive even if cost were the same. If you’re close to 50 min commute, driving is a lot more attractive.

  60. Regarding the Lincoln house…no way near a comp. Its fugly…this house is gorgeous. Yes, LP land/lots go for a premium but I’d still take this Wolcott house. You can’t underestimate function and quiet (Lincoln is noisy). The only reason to buy the Lincoln house is if you want that neighborhood but the houses are not comparable. The kitchen in the Wolcott house costs about 50K more than the Lincoln house. To repaint the Lincoln house, retile, and get rid of the wallpaper is 50K…the tile is tacky…and that’s expensive to replace.

I got fam in Mt Prospect who the first year they moved there the used the metra after that they went back to driving. they make enough and live modest so the rise in gas prices isnt a factor for them.

    his view of chicago and its transportation is skewed and his blinders are as bad as many here (does chicago go past western ave?)

    Groove, it seems every major city in the world simultaneously decided you shouldn’t drive into it any more. Doing the same down here now too. Closed off half the lanes for buses only, and it was real bad before this, now impossible. Fairly certain that’s the intention.

    Of course finishing the new metra *first* might have helped.

    I’d take the job for the fixed fee of $50k, sub out all the work, and take a nice vacation.

    They obviously aren’t going to appeal to the same person, but they are similar sizes, with similar overall layouts, for similar prices, with this one (the nicer *house*) giving up 20% of the land, and in a cheaper (if not necessarily less desirable for a given person) location. Basically, drop this house on the Lincoln lot, they probably would have started it at ~$2mm, and gotten something close, while the Lincoln house squeezed onto this short lot would probably slip below $1mm, unless they neutralized the interior.

    To me that’s a good thing. This Wolcott house. I LOVE that cooktop. BUT about 36 inches of pass thru space between the range and the sink. Try walking thru that while I am cooking and I will stab you. behind looks like even less space, and to walk closer to the windows makes you look at what looks like unfinished cabinetry, an out of place garbage can, and a ladder. Not even sure where the fridge is, but I’m assuming it’s hidden in those cabinets forcing someone to constantly come thru my knife wielding passage of death. NO WAY! HUGE FAIL HERE!!

Tourists from other parts of the midwest love Chicago for its walkability, and the density and accessibility of shopping and sights. Taming Chicago’s streets to make them even more enjoyable will only help.

    Some of you may remember how fugly ALL of River North was just 10-20 years ago, and compare it to now, with sections that have much more of a neighborhood feel due to people on the streets (many living in the residential condos) going to shops, art galleries and clusters of restaurants with outdoor seating. Cities like Kansas City and Oklahoma City are eminently driveable due to wide-open streets meant only for cars, but the tourists sure ain’t flocking there.

  89. “the loop will never be car free…it’s just a fun idea.”

    One of the issues with congestion pricing are the contracts for street and garage parking–if the city implements congestion pricing in a fashion that reduces the parking revenue, the owners of the meters and park-garages might have recourse.

    What is needed is some separated bike lanes somewhere useful. Kinzie is a decent start, but need something out of the loop on the south end and some N-S options. Also need some dedicated bus lanes, apart from the bike lanes–Halstead and Chicago would be prime for that, as the buses are so slow. Course, requires rebuilding some rail bridges, to avoid choke points, and giving up some street parking here and there.

    Let me know if not because I might pick up a 49cc one (if there are actually any decent ones, last time I checked only rare ones from the late 70s).

    The justifications that people make to prop up their choices are laughable. I’ve driven, taken the CTA, biked and walked in Chicago for the last 12 years of my life. It has been my experience that pedestrians, bikers and drivers are all complete asshats who only look out for their own interests. And they’ve all convinced themselves that the other groups are both evil and the root of all of Chicago’s transportation problems. That certitude of course gives them just cause to act like an even bigger asshat to the “others.”

  127. I saw a pedestrian (who had the walk symbol/right of way) get hit by a bike while crossing the street near my office in River North. The biker fell and then just got up and road off without saying a word to the woman he just hit. She was OK, luckily, thanks to strangers who helped her get up.

    I suppose some drivers do things like that too, but it just seems like the vast majority of bikes care about no one but themselves and their carbon footprint.

    It’s a tube TV so makes it cool/retro.

    Reminds me of something my parents used to have: the concrete foundation had a cut out for the fireplace on the first floor which extended down to the basement. When finishing the basement a 32″ fit perfectly in there.

    Worked out perfectly since the early 1990s till when they moved out when tube TVs no longer cut it. I always wonder what the new owners were going to put in there. Aside from a kegerator or mini fridge their options are limited. Different aspect ratios killed the tube TV star I suppose.

  141. I do commute daily downtown via bike, and I had read that story. It was a terribly misleading headline. That “crack down” mainly consisted of interns from the city’s bicycling ambassador program reminding cyclists to stop for red lights and thanking them when they did. There were cops present, who mostly gave a “talking to” to a few cyclists who didn’t obey the law.

    I’m a bike rider, pedestrian and car driver in the city, and I believe EVERYONE needs to follow the laws, and should be ticketed when they don’t, no matter which mode of transportation they choose. Stay safe, be kind, and smile!

    he rides like an asshat but totally admits it. like i said i dont mind the stupid looking sponsorship jersey tight shorts carbon bike livestrong wristband riders, its all the other jackbutz that need to meet the end of my louisville slugger.

    how in the heck could you have a bike lane and still end up in traffic, i dont get it! and these tree hugging fixie idiots dont understand how to use signals and just fly right into the left turn lane. then get pist when you almost hit them.

    F’ing signal then merge safely you pricks, then there wouldnt be an issue.

    and i dont give a flyin f***** if you stopping at stop sign makes you pedal harder to get back up to speed, you need to STOP as i treat you like other vehicles and expect you to stop then when you dont i get to test my reflexes. then my son starts crying all because you dont want to pedal harder you stupid fat azz.

    the best of all are the mix matchers i call them, the ones who jump from sidewalk to street when ever they feel like it or when ever it suits them. if i am driving and see you on the side walk i assume your a pedstrian, if your in the street i treat you like another vehicle. but when your assclown idiocy jumps the curb randomly then what the f am i to do?

    i swear one day if you see on the news a man going bat-tastic on these idiot cyclist then you know groove has snapped and will need to be committed.

  144. Groove – hysterical. No matter what we will always have crappy bikers, drivers and pedestrians too. That’s just how it is. The sidewalk one is really annoying…only bikes on sidewalks should have kids under 10 on them.

    Although if I had a choice – I would get rid of bad drivers over bikers anyday. They take up a lot more room and do a lot more stupid things. I always love the people who won’t pass you running or biking on the side of the road as they feel like they are getting too close. I mean come on…..a 20 foot wide road with 10 feet for parked cars leaves 10 feet for a car and a person to share. You can tell people really have no concept of the size of their cars. And if that is the case, they shouldn’t drive them on public roads.

    Daley’s pathetic sharrows are often too dangerous to be in. At least we have a mayor now who realizes that and is putting in protected lanes which will completely separate bikes and cars for the most part.

    Might wanna work on that road rage too btw, no good comes out of that. Cars aren’t exactly innocent, just this morning on the opposing lane a car was double parked, the SUV behind it instead of yielding to me went around it and missed me by about 6 inches…

    And yes, there’s a big education problem with bikers (fixable), but if you’re in a car they ain’t gonna hurt you, so why rage so much. Just chill out and let god sort em out.

  156. “Cars are supposed to yield for pedestrians in EVERY cross walk whether there is a stop light/ stop sign or not.”

    OK, not to geek out on you, but this isn’t quite accurate. Since July 2010, the law was changed to require drivers to STOP for pedestrians in a crosswalk with no traffic control signals, or at an intersection where the traffic control signals are not functioning. If the stoplights are working, the pedestrian does not have the right of way in a crosswalk if they’re crossing against the light. The law previously only said that motorists had to “yield” to pedestrians, which no one could define any more clearly, but it didn’t mean STOP, as it does now. Also notice that pedestrians don’t have the right to dart out in front of cars, even though they have the right of way. Here’s the new law:

    When traffic control signals are not in place or not in operation the driver of a vehicle shall stop and yield the right?of?way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk when the pedestrian is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling, or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger.
    (b) No pedestrian shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a moving vehicle which is so close as to constitute an immediate hazard.

    But what does that mean? If the speedlimit on a city street is 25 and the car is 10 car lengths away or so, I should be able to cross. Issue is most people are doing 40.

    It means that at a marked zebra crosswalk, you can’t dart out in front of a car at the last second, but yes, if you are obviously trying to cross the street and there is any chance the car CAN stop, it MUST stop to let you cross. As you said, the problem is mostly that 1/ cars are going faster than the posted speed limit and 2/ they are more afraid of getting rear-ended by the car behind them than they are of getting caught breaking the law and getting a $200 ticket, so they buzz right by you.

  177. The law is that if you ‘dart-out’ into the street as the cases are called you have a 50/50 chance of recovering money from a jury. And given those odds, a lot of dart-outs go to jury. One particular dart out case I first chaired on its way to jury, eventually settled at pre-trial for $75,000, Plaintiff asked for $450,000 (broken femur among other things, necrosis of the bone, hardware removal and reinstallation, messed up gait, etc) – but at pre-trial the judge said, “Based on the facts you’d probably get nothing at jury, but I’ll recommend $75,000 to pay your medical bills, but that’s it.” $75,000 it settled for.

    as for rollerbladders, they take up the whole dam bike path… but that swing back and forth makes it ok. girls who rollerblade and rock climb seem to always have great bodies.

  185. “honest question: of any 100 potential buyers for a $1MM+ property in your NW side hoods, how many would you say actually give ANY consideration to the fact that they can hop the blue line to O’Hare?
    or, for another often-cited example, that they’re just a block/two walk to a bus stop where they can then get to the Brown line to then get to the Loop.”

    I dunno about the Blue Line for the nice house/public transit combo, but I know a lot of people who make a ton of money who ride public transit everyday. A guy who I work with lives near me and does probably a 45 minutes bus/train combo every day. This guy makes seven figures and just prefers the public transit commute, I guess. I make six figures and mostly drive because I like to. I occasionally catch the train when it makes more sense for whatever reason. You shouldn’t just assume that everyone is just like you.

  186. I think that the subject property would be a great deal at around $1.2 million. If the owner will sell it there, I think that someone will snap it up. Not everyone who has money is Johnny and Mary Suburban Mindset.

  189. Why don’t overweight people rollerblade, BTW? It is easier than walking after all so shouldn’t it appeal to the less physically active?

    Overweight people don’t rollerblade because then they would spill their Big Gulp.

    Groove, now that you mention it, I’ve never been mad at a surfer girl in her bikini stealing my wave either. They really do have magical powers.

  191. “Why don’t overweight people rollerblade, BTW? ”

    i would assume the ankle support would be scary? and like ZE said you cant eat your flaming red hots and rock a slurpee while skating!

    “Groove, now that you mention it, I’ve never been mad at a surfer girl in her bikini stealing my wave either. They really do have magical powers.”

    there is two reason men do what they do and that is one of them.

  192. Bikers are terrible in Chicago. I had nothing against bikes, I own one I used to ride occasionally. But all the hardcore biker types have ruined it. I’ve been yelled at, cursed, and literally spat at by bikers over nothing. I once made a right turn into a parking lot from a right lane down by the post office on canal. The biker behind me got irate because he had to use his brakes. I lowered my window to say “sorry I didn’t see you.” His immediate response was to attempt to spit a big glob of phlegm right in my face. How civilized. I was soo lucky it just barely hit the door of my car. The next occasion I was unloading from my car with my door opened into the bike lane. My door was already openned before any bikers were in the area. There was also no traffic on this part of north kenmore, so I wasn’t impeding anyone. Then a female on a bike rides by and starts name calling and just keeps going. So I guess you don’t even have a right to get out of your car when you are parked next to a bike line from their perspective. Then I needed some part time help for my small business. This guy shows up and just assumes its ok to bring his bike indoors, which I didn’t mind, but then he pulls this stunt of intentionally not working like day dreaming when I’m not looking, then when I walk in the room he suddenly starts working again. This was in his first day, his first freakin few hours on the job. Needless to say there wasn’t a second day. On youtube there are some good videos of bikers intentionally blocking cars and one gets his bike run over and the cops don’t do anything, some funny stuff. I’m sure there are a lot of upstanding courteous bikers out there, but unfortunately a great many of them are broke as a joke and have a grudge. One externality is that they slow down every car driver, who are on average more productive to society. Yep, every biker over 16 should be licensed, registered, and taxed like cars. It’s not right for them to be anonymous little terrors of the road.
