Nate Berkus-Renovated Townhouse Asks $3.2M in Chicago

A Chicago townhouse gut renovated by none other than Nate Berkus Associates is on the market. Located in the Windy City’s historic Gold Coast district, the home and its sensibilities seem reminiscent of a brownstone somewhere in the Upper West Side or Park Slope. Leave it to such a talented designer to meld bold and elegant aesthetics so seamlessly. With a price tag of $3.195 million, the glamorous spread is a bright spot in what can be a cold and dreary winter.

In 2014, Nate Berkus’ design firm descended on this townhouse found at 23 East Scott Street to do a major overhaul. The property, originally constructed in 1883, wasn’t yet finished evolving once Berkus was through, however. Later in 2018, the current owners further personalized the interiors with the help of the Environmental Design Group, although Berkus’ substantial contributions remain. A black and white marble-tiled foyer grants that essential first impression, with a spiral staircase climbing upwards topped by a skylight. And if you really love drama, you’ve got to check out the kitchen.

The home spans a total of 5,024 square feet, with 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and 4 half-bathrooms included in the floorplan. A four-stop elevator offers an easy alternative to the dramatic staircase, sweeping you first from the foyer to the living spaces and then all the way up the full-floor master suite. Ryan Preuett of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
