Have you ever wanted to own a piece of Chicago history? What about live in one? For real though.
The Flair House, one of Chicago’s most historic buildings, hit the market recently. The River North home not only used to play host to famous block parties but also helped birth the Chicago Marathon–all thanks to the work of Lee Flaherty, who worked at an ad agency the building. Pretty much everything in the place has been locally sourced or plucked from another Chicago building.
The property features some extravagant renaissance design, including a four-story spiral staircase, giant bar, coy pond and some incredible stained glass. In terms of basic amenities, it has five bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The beauty and history is all yours for $2.99 million.
