A townhouse built for a family who survived the Titanic disaster has gone on the market for $13.3 million.

Located in Chicago’s upscale Lincoln Park neighborhood, the house was originally built between 1915 and 1917 as part of four Georgian residences, according to Chicago Historic Preservation Society.

The townhouses were among the first to boast amenities commonly seen in high-end apartment towers built along the lake, the company explained.

Architects Henry Corwith Dangler and David Adler designed the timeless homes for a group of close friends, including Emily Maria Ryerson – who was an American first-class passenger who survived the sinking of the RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912, with her three children, Suzette, Emily and John. But her husband, Arthur, sadly perished in the tragedy after refusing to board a lifeboat until all the women and children were rescued.

Tragically, the couple had returned from Europe to America to attend the funeral of their son, Arthur Jr., who had been killed in a car accident.

The mansion has since been split into two multi-million dollar luxury residences and is now up for sale for a total of $13.3 million.

“The first unit is much more historical. We have a lot of original moldings, original stairs, original stairs,” Leigh-Anne Kazma, an investor behind the Adler on the Park Showcase House for Charity, told local station WGN9. . “Unit two is a bit more contemporary.”

The house is currently open to the public for tours every weekend until the end of this month, with $65 tickets.

Called Residence One in the Lakeview Avenue townhouse neighborhood, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom estate spans more than 6,400 square feet, blending Adler’s 1915 architecture with modern interiors.

Features include a grand foyer with marble checkerboard floors, restored columns and a restored staircase backdrop. The first level includes a three-car garage, two mudrooms, a large family room and two bedrooms.
