Thursday Three Hundred: Beautiful, Sleek, and Sexy — It’s Not a Model, But a Modern Marvel on Throckmorton Street
It’s funny how, just like their owners, houses have distinct personalities. I imagine some as refined Scotch drinkers who both have and are acquired tastes. Some are classics, some are works of art, and some are better off seeing the business end of a wrecking ball.
And some, well, they take your breath away like a gorgeous gal in a trendy sportscar. That’s 2712 Throckmorton, which is marketed by David Griffin himself! With all of the angles, textures, and colors, this home will get your engine running!
As I understand it, this unit is one of six designed by architect Ed Baum. Not only are the homes stunning, but they have an award-winning pedigree, too. Besides being recognized by the American Institute of Architecture, “These homes have been published (including a feature story in DWELL magazine) and have received most positive attention in the press for their innovative and forward thinking urban design,” the listing says.
This two-bedroom, two-bath unit is centered around a gorgeous courtyard. Large floor-to-ceiling windows in the living area and one of the bedrooms look in on the outdoor space, which would be perfect for entertaining.
Everything about this house is tres chic and super sleek, from the kitchen with bamboo and stainless, to the painted beam ceiling, even to the hallway, which, with huge bookshelves, is perfect for any bibliophile.
This is Uptown, though, and with all this space (more than 1,600 square feet, if you’re keeping track!), expect to fork over some dough. With this home, you really do pay for location, and this location doesn’t disappoint, clocking in at more than $236 per square foot!
Of course, it’s a great spot, smack dab between the Tollway and Oak Lawn. You get accessibility and culture (and nightlife!) and a really sexy house!
