The 1955 Personal Residence of Architect John Bartolomeo

3555 W 102nd St, Evergreen Park


3555 W. 102nd St. is the Contemporary Roman-Style masterpiece of Chicago architect John Bartolomeo. Built as Bartolomeo’s personal residence, his highly custom finishes shine throughout every space of this spectacular residence. The exterior bi-level design defies the art of architectural symmetry with soaring roof lines, multiple balconies, elegant stone detail, and over-sized windows, with gorgeous landscaping surrounding the home on all sides. A grand front entrance brings you to a welcoming patio and into the home where the standard of excellence is set high. The formal dining room is adorned with wall to wall, floor to ceiling windows and a Juliette balcony, and the large sunken living room is the ideal space to entertain with an oversized stone fireplace, tray ceilings with indirect cove lighting, an array of windows, and a stone wall complimenting the adjacent fireplace. The spacious kitchen offers a dedicated dining area, peninsula with bar seating, stainless steel appliances, generous cabinets and counter space, and a skylight to bring in more natural light. Completing the main level is a 5th bedroom, office, or toy room (originally designed by Bartolomeo as the maid’s quarters), full bath with walk-in shower, and laundry room with direct access to the 2.5 car heated garage. The second level boasts the primary suite, with a private balcony overlooking the St. Xavier University grounds, dual closets, and full bath with vanity station and dual sinks. An additional bedroom on the second level awaits, with flexible potential to serve as a guest bedroom or den and features a beautiful fireplace with stone and wood surround, a natural wood beamed ceiling, and a wall of built-in shelving. Travel to the third level to find two bedrooms each with walk-out balconies and a shared full bathroom. The finished basement offers even more space for entertaining and play, with a third stone fireplace, wet bar, heated floors, large half bath, game/billiards room with built-in seating, and a sub-level storage/mechanical room. Retreat to multiple outdoor patios, including a fully fenced in brick paver patio offering complete privacy. Enjoy numerous upgrades to the property including Marvin windows throughout, brand new HVAC, newly replaced whole house flood control ejector system, and underground sprinkler system. Highly desirable Evergreen Park location, a short walk to Southwest Elementary or several local private grammar schools, Evergreen Park High School, Mother McAuley, Br. Rice, and St. Xavier Campus. A very special, once in a generation opportunity to own Evergreen Park’s most iconic home!
