WICKER PARK — An 1800s-era house that architect Hermann Gaul once called home will soon be on the market for $2.99 million, according to its listing agent.
The five-bedroom, 3½-bathroom Victorian house at 1530 N. Hoyne Ave. is on a corner lot along "Beer Baron Row," which earned the nickname for all of the brewers who built homes in the area.
Earlier this year, another Beer Baron Row home sold for $2.3 million.
According to listing agent Mary MacDiarmid of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services KoenigRubloff Realty Group, the brick house was built along Hoyne in the late 1800s.
"It really is just exquisite," MacDiarmid said.
Gaul, whose early 20th century work includes St. Benedict Church in North Center and the Monastery of the Holy Cross (then Immaculate Conception church) in Bridgeport, among others, once lived in the home with his wife and 10 children.
