This four-flat was built in 1910 in Katherine Hansen’s Addition to Edgewater. The original owners were Gust. and John Chillstrowen. The builder was G. Ryberg, who built it to fit the lot with the front door right at the sidewalk. The façade of the building is symmetrical, with a central door with two sidelights surrounded by limestone. At the top of the building is a metal cornice. Inside the foyer has a wainscoting and a ceramic tile floor. You will see the first floor unit.
The entrance is through the dining room of the apartment. The wood floors are of high quality and all the doors are oak. The woodwork surrounding the windows and doors has been painted. The dining room is large and has a three window unit facing west. To the right is the living room, with the same type of window. Just off the living room is a small space with a window that functions as an office. It may have had another purpose originally.
Off the dining room is the bedroom. Towards the back is a short hall leading to the bathroom with slate tile floor/walls and the remodeled kitchen. The cabinets are maple and the floor is new maple flooring.
There is a double glass door that opens out onto a lovely deck, on which the owner has beautiful window boxes and a seating area. Out the back door is a staircase to the back terrace which has been beautifully landscaped with a cozy seating area, a pond and many lovely plants. You will exit out the back and down the alley to return to the front.
