The perfect balance of sophistication, history and location is hard to come by, which is why 1308 N. Astor is a rare gem in Chicago's Gold Coast. A picturesque 4 bedroom/4.5 bath single-family home that was originally designed by John Wellborn Root in 1887, the home underwent a total renovation to appeal to a modern sensibility. Inside, the first-floor foyer sets a distinctive tone courtesy of marble floors and a stately fireplace (one of four total fireplaces throughout the home). From there, its 4,700-square-foot footprint reveals a state-of-the-art chef's kitchen with iceberg quartzite countertops and best in class appliances with 2 Sub-Zeros, Wolf cooktop and two dishwashers, a spacious dining room, a handsome book-lined library, two romantic living rooms boasting custom millwork and crown molding, and a natural light-kissed landing that's ideal for an office. Accessed by a curvaceous spindle staircase (or private elevator), ensuite bedrooms give family and friends the space to spread out. The top floor, however, is entirely devoted to a posh master suite that flaunts a custom walk-in closet and a spa-like, marble-clad bath with his-and-hers vanity and statement sconces. Additional amenities include a luxurious in-law suite (or nanny suite) with separate entrance, seamless hardwood floors throughout, two private terraces, a family-friendly mudroom, a subterranean flex space with surplus storage, state-of-the-art smart home systems and staggered security cameras. Polish and privacy - all on prestigious Astor Street overlooking Goudy Square Park, two blocks from Oak Street Beach and the lakefront. It doesn't get any chicer than this.

As a licensed real estate brokerage, Estately has access to the same database professional Realtors use: the Multiple Listing Service (or MLS). That means we can display all the properties listed by other member brokerages of the local Association of Realtors—unless the seller has requested that the listing not be published or marketed online.
The MLS is widely considered to be the most authoritative, up-to-date, accurate, and complete source of real estate for-sale in the USA.
Estately updates this data as quickly as possible and shares as much information with our users as allowed by local rules. Estately can also email you updates when new homes come on the market that match your search, change price, or go under contract.

Climate models project that both the frequency and amount of precipitation are likely to increase throughout most of the US. Your storm risk rating is based on both of these dynamics: the typical number of extremely wet or snowy events and the amount of rain or snow that will fall during those storms. An extremely wet event for your area experiences an amount of precipitation over 48 hours that normally happens only 8 times during the 1981-2005 baseline period.
Drought risk is based on water supply stress, which estimates how much of the available water in a location will be used by human activity, like watering the lawn. This information is specific to each watershed, or drainage basin, and takes into account both the projected supply of water, projected demand due to population growth and water use, and features of the watershed, such as soil properties and land cover.
Heat risk estimates are based on the typical number of extremely hot days that you can expect in the future. An extremely hot day for your area has a high temperature that normally happens only on the hottest 8 days of the year, during the baseline period from 1981 to 2005.
Fire risk estimates are based on projections for the average proportion of the area surrounding your home that will burn annually. Baseline estimates for burned area are drawn from the Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity project and MC2 simulation data, and supplemented with Cal-Adapt modeled historical area burned since 1960.
Walk Score is the most well-known measure of walkability for any address. It is based on the distance to a variety of nearby services and pedestrian friendliness. Walk Scores range from 0 (Car-Dependent) to 100 (Walker’s Paradise).

Soundscore is an overall score that accounts for traffic, airport activity, and local sources. A Soundscore rating is a number between 50 (very loud) and 100 (very quiet).

Jameson Sotheby's Int'l Realty
Listing Agents and Buyer’s Agents represent the two sides of a real estate transaction. As a Seller of a home, your Listing Agent represents your interests and will advise, consult and follow your instructions to sell your property at the best possible price and terms.
If you’re a Buyer, a Buyer’s Agent advises you throughout the transaction, helping you get the best deal and advocating for you. The Buyer’s Agent commission is also paid by the Seller, so the Buyer never sees a bill for their service.
Many first time Buyers believe they can work without a Buyer’s Agent and instead use the same agent as the Seller. When both Buyer and Seller use the same agent, known as “dual agency”, it can sometimes save on fees, but it also puts the agent in a conflict of interest, not fully representing either party.
