The historic Patterson McCormick Mansion, built in 1893, was designed by Stanford White and expanded in 1927 by David Adler. Warm Roman brick and terra cotta trim contribute to the distinctive aura of this grand palazzo-style home, which was built as a wedding gift for the daughter of the Chicago Tribune’s Joseph Medill.
The mansion, at the corner of Burton and Astor, was converted to condominiums in 1978. The full-floor residence featured in this video tour is the only unit with access to the massive south-facing front porch. With 12-foot ceilings, 4 fireplaces, a gorgeous library, designer kitchen and much more, this 2-bedroom, 2 ½ bath, 3,700 square foot landmark is one of the treasures of Chicago’s Gold Coast.
