Step back in time in this loving restored 7000 square foot Burnham and Root home built in 1889 for a wagon maker, Issac N.W. Sherman who was the brother of John B. Sherman, Chicago stockyard magnate. Issac Sherman was the uncle of Daniel Burnham's wife, Martha. Daniel Burnham was famous for planning the 1893 world's fair, The Rookery, The Field Museum and The Museum of Science and Industry among others. The home is the Kenwood neighborhood with quick access to the lake, museum campus, downtown, UIC, IIT and McCormick,
After the death of Sherman in 1914 the home was split into as many as 12 boarding rooms with the addition added to the back of the home around World War 1. The house is finishing a $500,000+ renovation. This vintage home boasts 7 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half baths over 3 floors.

Character being restored
This home is definitely filled with history and great architectural definition . The owners are great and greeted us the evening we arrive to give us a tour with some history . It has all the amenities of home and it made for a wonderful family reunion !
Christine was great! Loved having her and her family!
This is a WOW house!
From beginning to end this was a great weekend in the city! Everything went as planned and I can’t say enough about this home. I would stay again, and recommend to anyone wanting to stay/sleep in beautiful Chicago history in a wonderful area! Classy, clean and an excellent owner! I hope you all enjoy this home as much as we did!
Nicely restored and renovated home
The renovation and updates to the home are fantastic. There was plenty of space for us too. Location was great for us to get to McCormick Place quickly. Would stay here again without question. The owners were friendly and helpful with the area the home.
Wow!!! What an amazing home!!!
Thank you to Lori and Derek for getting this magnificent home ready for our stay. The location from the convention center was very convenient and just a short Uber ride. The home was spacious with beds for our entire group plus more bathrooms than we could ask for. And we didn't run out of hot water!!!
We were very honored to be the first guests to stay at this home since the restoration. Thanks for letting us host the open house celebration and for working so hard to make it all come together so wonderfully! We can't wait until next time to see what else you have done to the home.
