Pristine Home, Survivor of Gangland Bombing, Asks $2.75M

New, 6 comments

Do you enjoy the former haunts of men of ill repute? Then this exquisite Lincoln Park Victorian gets even better when you learn it once belonged to Chicago gangster Jacob (Mont) Tennes. Built in 1875, this 5-bed—the "grandest of dames"—is drop dead gorgeous. What else is there to say? It starts with the prefectly-intact brick facade and wrap-around porch, and continues with grand rooms, high ceilings, leaded glass windows, built-in foyer seating, vaulted attic lounge space, and modern greenhouse kitchen. The property also comes with guest quarters which can serve as a possible income-generating unit, and a four-car garage. Fun fact: the home was the target of a bombing in 1907, which only grazed the structure. New-to-market, the ask is a well-justified $2.75M.
