A Lincoln Park townhouse built for a survivor of the Titanic is coming to market in two separate listings for $7.65 million and $5.65 million.

Titanic survivor Emily Ryerson commissioned architects Henry Corwith Dangler and David Adler to build the home at 2700 N. Lakeview, according to the New York Post. It was completed in 1917 and was originally one residence. Currently the property is split into two homes, each up for sale.

Wendy Berg of Baird & Warner is the listing agent for the properties.

The home was built as part of a group of four Georgian-style homes, according to Chicago’s Historic Preservation Society. They were built for a group of friends including Ryerson.

Ryerson was an American who survived the sinking of RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912, according to the Post. She and her three children, Suzette, Emily and John made it to safety, but her husband, Arthur, died in the accident.

“Unit one is a lot more historic. We have a lot of original molding, original staircase, original stairs,” Leigh-Anne Kazma, an investor behind the Adler on the Park Showcase House for Charity, told WGN9.

The four-story building is now divided into two condos, one on the first two floors, and the other on the third and fourth floors.

The 6,500-square-foot lower unit is listed at $7.65 million. The five bedroom, four bathroom home includes a grand foyer with a marble checkered floor and restored columns as well as a three-car garage, two mudrooms, and a large family room.

The 5.200-square-foot upper unit is listed at $5.65 million. It includes four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a heated 2.5 car garage and an 800-square-foot terrace.

The four row homes are connected and overlook Lincoln Park, and have a landmark designation. Six homes were originally planned for the site, but the death of one of the architects as well as the U.S. involvement in World War I prevented the construction of the final two homes. While the homes are in Chicago’s elite Lincoln Park neighborhood, the site was considered unfashionable at the time, away from the Gold Coast, then the center of wealth and society, according to the Historic Preservation Society.
