S.009 James Charnley Residence,

1365 North Astor Street, Chicago, Illinois

 

LINK TO OFFICIAL WEBSITE

 

This 1891 residence was designed by Sullivan and Wright, and now serves as headquarters for the Society of Architectural Historians. Tours are offered.

 

It sits at the corner of North Astor and East Schiller on the near north side of Chicago near Lake Shore Drive, and it can be a maze to navigate through one-way streets and typical Chicago road construction. The building can be viewed from three sides, as there is an alley behind although its alley views are unremarkable. It is also difficult to get a photo without cars in front.
