Truly unique opportunity in Chicago's South Shore community - just steps to Lake Michigan. The former St. Bride Church and Rectory are being offered as a package. The church was designed as a French Gothic edifice comprised of brick and stone accents. The actual dedication of the church was in June,1909. The main level worship,altar,and sacristy space is approximately 4,800 sq ft. The church has ten double stained glass windows and a choir loft. There are 51 pews of various sizes circling a raised altar,seating for nearly 350 worshippers. The church has a full basement which houses a large meeting/gathering space,a full kitchen,a raised stage area,and two restrooms. The basement has nearly 4,200 sq ft. The rectory to the south of the church was built in 1925 of similar French Gothic design and on the site of the original church. It's a 2.5-story building of brick and stone with a clay roof. The main level has three offices,a chapel,a full-sized kitchen with butler's pantry,an expansive formal dining room,1.1 baths,and extra closet space. The upper level has a large Pastor's suite at the front of the building - living room/office area,a primary bedroom with private bath,closet,and an enclosed porch/sunroom. The remainder of the upper level has five additional bedroom suites with three full bathrooms. The center hallway has a domed ceiling and access to the top level which had been used as recreational space. The full basement is partially finished and houses the heating system - a six-year-old Weil McLain boiler which fuels the radiators throughout the building. There is a 100-gallon water tank. There are two electrical panel - one with circuit breakers,the other with fuses. The sump pump system is about three years old. Laundry facilities and plenty of storage also exist in the basement. A concrete side drive separates the church and rectory. At the end of the drive way is an all brick 2-car garage. Above the garage is a brick breezeway or "bridge" that was built to provide interior access from the rectory to the church. There are separate PINs - 21304140010000 (the church which sits on a 138'x135' lot); and 21304140030000 (the rectory and green space on a lot measuring 35'x198'). Final lot size will be determined by the survey. Property is currently tax exempt. Looking for a visionary to transform or repurpose this historic part of South Shore.
