Time Magazine aptly referred to artist and artisan Edgar Miller‘s work as the “handmade home.”
When Unit 15 at Old Town‘s Carl Street Studios, 155 W Burton Pl, first came on the market several months ago we wrote that the world of Edgar Miller is one that “some find overwhelmingly attractive – and makes others want to flee.”
Dennis Rodkin’s recent video tour of the unit showcases its attractions exceedingly well, and is a great example of how video can explicate a home’s value better than any other medium. One element of value sorely missing in the video is its steps from Wells Street location and stagger-home proximity to one of Chicago’s most interesting bars, Burton Place.
The unit previously sold for $635,000 in December of 2005 and is currently listed at $549,000. Koenig & Strey’s Helaine Cohen has the listing.
