Daily Dream Home: James P Sherlock House

The extraordinary James P Sherlock House in Chicago, Illinois is a truly magnificent Romanesque Revival brownstone that takes advantage of its 30-foot-wide lot in the Sheffield Historic District.

Meticulously preserved and thoughtfully updated, the most recent being a complete exterior renovation two years ago.

Impressively light and bright throughout, with expansive room sizes, tall windows and third floor skylights.

Historic home aficionados will adore the lead glass windows and hand carved woodwork, including pocket doors, fretwork spandrels, fireplace over mantels, lovely balusters and newel posts, and oak/birch inlaid floor border.

Other features include three-floor turret with slate roof, original tile hearths and surrounds, and a built-in china cabinet with antique lighting.

The chef’s eat-in kitchen has a south-facing built-in bench seat with views of patio/roof deck perennial plantings.
