Big Price Reduction on a Brawny Uptown Prairie Home

New, 13 comments

On the market for six months now, this listing is starting to reach maturity and beginning to ask tough questions of its purpose and self-worth. It shouldn't get too down on itself, there's a lot to be fond of here. For starters it's a handsome home with a lot of early-20th century details, including stained glass windows, stenciled beamed ceilings, and pocket doors. Its eight bedrooms, four baths, gigantic foyer and 5,000 sf of living space qualify it for mini-mansion status. The addition of new wooden fire escape and decks must be a peculiar looking thing slapped onto the rear of the house. We're only guessing. It does considerable expand outdoor lounging space, though. One drawback: the kitchen is pretty small, owing to the days when cooking was all that happened there. Originally priced at $985K, the ask is down to $895K.
