There's little technology we've retained from the days of horse-drawn fire vehicles, but some of the structures that housed them remain a part of Chicago's landscape. One such structure, converted into a single-family home in Wicker Park, is on the market with a $789,000 price tag.
The rehabbed four bedroom, three bath space retains 12-foot beamed ceilings, exposed wood support beams and brick, and replicated firehouse barn doors that hearken back to its original purpose. It's also been updated, with heated bathroom floors, three fireplaces, and new windows and skylights.
Part of the approximately 3,158 square foot-space has been repurposed into an attached two-car garage. An expansive wood deck shoots out from the home's back entrance, mirrored by a 450 square foot rooftop deck. The building, originally constructed to hold horses and fire-fighting vehicles, was built in the 1800s.
