This brick home is located at 1746 W Surf Street in Chicago, IL in an enclave of 14, million-dollar single family homes. It was built in 2006 and features approximately 7,824 square feet of living space with 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2-story foyer with curved staircase, central atrium with seating and water feature, formal living room with fireplace and French doors opening up to a front terrace, formal dining room with coffered ceiling and custom built-ins, custom gourmet kitchen with adjoining breakfast room, step-down family room with stone fireplace and bar area, deck off of kitchen with built-in BBQ, playroom, gym and a 3-car garage. It is listed at $3,295,000. The atrium is a neat space that most people wouldn’t expect a home to have, great getaway. I also love all of the custom built-ins and vibrant colors throughout. Even though there isn’t that much outdoor space, they made great use of the space given.

    This is such a cozy home! It’s decorated nicely and the rooms are spacious. There’s nothing like having an atrium in your home. So cool 🙂

    The foyer is a little dissapointing but the rest is very workable. That family room is fantastic – love the color scheme. The rest of the rooms just need a different paint color and you’re good to go. Maybe I’d change that kitchen island too.

    I’m confused about the price: if it’s in an enclave of $14 million houses, why it is only $3 million? Many of the surrounding houses look smaller than this, so I can’t imagine they’d be worth four and a half times more.

    The house itself is pretty nice. There are some design changes I’d make, such as the wall colors in the foyer, master bath, dining room, and kitchen. But, that’s just paint. I think the house would look even better with some personalization added to it, like actual books in the bookshelves in the living room. I’m unsure about the kitchen island (maybe it looks better in person), but I do love the atrium.

      14, million-dollar houses lol (as in 14 total homes). Not $14 million dollar houses.

    Double lot-so it should have an awesome back yard…no pics. Only a second floor balcony with dinette set. No doubt house built on as much land as possible-no back yard/grass- garage is under the house. Wonder what the alley looks like! No side yard. Might as well live in a condo with a view. But, it is a really cool house.

    I like this house overall, but the architect did make a few mistakes. It is visually a two-story house with basement and a loooong exterior staircase. This would be OK in Miami, but this is Chicago. The entrance should have been at ground level, with staircase completely INDOORS. This would have meant a visually three-story villa, which would have been more appropriate. Also, the balcony should have been larger/deeper and more prominent, to lessen the impact of the garages. But well done overall and probably a good value.

    Most urban mansions on small lots don’t appeal to me. Too many compromises to make it fit take away a lot of potential. That said, this is a cozy yet spacious interior and the atrium may be the best feature.
