Developers across the U.S. are finding unique ways to save old buildings instead of tearing them down for new, modern structures. In Chicago, developers took a chance on a 1907 firehouse, complete with the signatory red doors.

The oversized first floor is complete with 14-foot ceilings and is perfect for a studio or office space, while the second floor is for main living, featuring an open floor plan with kitchen and living. With two-bedrooms and three bathrooms, the 4,500-square-foot property also comes with an attached two-car garage, a generous wine cellar, and counter-top beer taps connected to two barrels.

The home hit the market last week, listing at $1.35 million. Curbed Chicago takes readers on an inside look of the renovated space for some inspiration.
