Take a Look Inside a $2.7M Gold Coast Home

Doug Van Tress and Chauwarin Tuntisak, owners of the Golden Triangle, are asking $2.7 million for their roughly 4,000-square-foot four-story home on Division Street. This incredible Gold Coast home originally contained four apartments when the men began work on it 20 years ago.




Behind the 19th-century facade with a prominent cornice at the top, a traditional Chicago look, the home has rooms paneled with teak from an old British men’s club in Yangon in Myanmar, built-in armoires made of doors salvaged in China, exposed brick from removing most of a wall to enlarge rooms, and a surface that at one end is a kitchen counter and at the other is a step on the way out to a terrace.

The terrace is one of four levels of landscaped outdoor space that Van Tress says “we made so we could have a treehouse hideaway in the middle of the Gold Coast because we worked weekends so having a second home was unrealistic.”
The building contained four apartments when the men paid a little less than $1.16 million for it in 2002. They rehabbed it into two two-story units but wound up using the whole thing as their home. A new owner could use it as either a single home or two units.
