Celebrity Chef Lists Chicago Townhouse Brimming with Eclectic Style
Stephanie Izard is a celebrity chef, competitor, and restaurateur. The first woman to win Bravo’s Top Chef and now an Iron Chef, one could call her the GOAT (Greatest of All-Time). After all, her restaurants already embrace the title. Opening the Girl & the Goat, Duck Duck Goat, Goat Group Catering, and more, her professional endeavors are named with a side of whimsy. Now Izard’s Chicago home, a townhouse in the Tri-Taylor neighborhood, is for sale with an equal splash of quirkiness.
Priced at $1.35 million, the four-story residence has a simultaneously cozy, sleek, and fun feel to it. Like a chef’s tasting menu, it is full of surprising and delightful combinations.
“This is a true creative’s home with Stephanie’s eclectic style and creativity infused throughout,” says listing agent Jennifer Johnson of Compass. “From the incredible Kalamazoo outdoor kitchen on the spacious back patio to the vintage bar and wood-paneled wall off the kitchen around the fireplace, this home is perfect for anyone that loves to entertain and wants a home with character. There is nothing cookie-cutter about it.”
Looking around, it’s hard to disagree. A colorful glass pendant hangs above the wet bar, a blue clawfoot bathtub sits in the primary suite, and barrel staves from Goose Island surround the office.
Expected the unexpected here. But, you can certainly count on a great amount of space with four bedrooms and lovely outdoor areas to soak in.
