5620 Jackson: Reclaimed potential
Let’s say, hypothetically, that you’re looking to settle on down in Highland Park. And let’s also assume that the home of your hypothetical dreams is fully renovated, beautifully designed, and mere blocks from Bryant Street’s shops and eateries. It’s big and bright, boasting four bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, and a contemporary aesthetic with hints of reclaimed materials.
Just one thing: This isn’t a drill. We’ve located your dream home, and our sister company built it. Non-hypothetically. Dramatically overhauled and new on the market, 5620 Jackson Streets emits equal parts artistry and functionality at every turn.
The second-floor master, for example, has been morphed into a personal luxury suite. It offers both sitting and sleeping quarters and uses a gas-burning, double-sided fireplace to divide them. We never said this place was conventional.
Below, the living room’s open layout makes for a solid entertainment space, particularly when paired with an adjacent kitchen. Illuminated naturally by French doors connecting a rear deck, the room features subway-tiled backsplash, exposed brick, quartz countertops, and a lovely wet bar / wine fridge combo. Those modern assets are fitting contrasts to the home’s natural bamboo flooring, which you’ll find everywhere but the third floor. That floor has perks of its own (like a separately controlled thermostat, for one). Dually zoned HVAC for the win.
