214 W Erie Street, River North


214 W. ErieThis stunning gem of Chicago history known as the Flair House not only used to host famous block parties, but it was also an integral part of the creation of the Chicago Marathon.

This beautiful house with a vine-covered brick exterior has been home to ad agency Flair Communications for several decades, but now it’s on the market being sold as a luxurious private residence. Originally built in 1883 by an Irish immigrant, this five-bedroom, four-bathroom house was completely locally sourced from other Chicago buildings.
The four story home was purchased by Flair Chief Lee Flaherty in the 1960’s, according to Curbed Chicago. Soon after it received a major overhaul that took years to complete. The extravagant, 7,000-square-foot residence features beautiful stained glass, a four-story spiral staircase, a giant bar, and a coy pond!

This magnificent home is all yours for a cool $3 million.
