The Beaconsfield

From HistoryWiki

The The Beaconsfield is at the southeast corner of Winthrop Avenue and Hollywood Avenue and the apartments of The Beaconsfield have since been cut up from their original configuration to provide additional units.

Nonetheless, The Beaconsfield stands today as a wonderful example of Pridmore's craft. One cannot walk past it without realizing instinctively that there is something special about it, something which one has seen nowhere else in Chicago. Of particular significance is the way the building is positioned on the site to maximize light and air entering the apartments.

The Beaconsfield originally contained 15 apartments - in four separate buildings connected by a common basement. It was noted that "every suite has its own sun parlor, sleeping porch, and practically every bedroom has a bath attached."
