    Description

    Own a piece of art history! 704 Highland was home to Sabina Ott, an internationally renowned artist and educator who was nicknamed the "artist mother of Chicago". In addition to being an acclaimed painter, sculptor, and installation artist, Ott was a longtime professor of art at Chicago's Columbia College and the founder of Terrain Exhibitions, an alternative gallery space run from 704 Highland's front porch and yard, that encouraged and exhibited the work of local artists. The gardens are starting their spring journey and the backyard heated studio with vaulted ceilings, awaits to inspire. Currently, there is a parking space on the south side of the garage. Parking can be restored in the garage simply with the installation of doors. The home is a 3 bedroom bungalow with 1 ginormous primary bedroom on the 2nd floor and 2 bedrooms on the first floor. There are plans for a full bath on the 2nd floor and adding a bath to the basement is also possible. The kitchen has been updated with custom tiles made by Sabina, stainless appliances and fabulous modern cabinets. There is a small mudroom off the kitchen that leads out to the back yard through a sliding glass door. The front porch is deep and welcoming. The living room has a gas log fireplace with a fabulous built in mantle and book shelves with glass doors on each side. The dining room is able to manage a large table and buffet. The basement has high ceilings, walk out access to the back yard and is full of possibilities. Amazing location, near Longfellow elementary school, walkable to 2 parks, walkable to the Harrison Arts District and easy to connect with public transportation and highways.
