Clearly, patient buyers seized the upper hand with this transaction. The just-sold 15-room, 4,000-square-foot Beverly mansion presides over its block from an elevated 75' x 210' lot. Even with YoChicago face-time, it took the home nearly eleven months to sell. The biggest stunner: what began as a $600K ask (below the 2002 sale price, even), ended as a $325K sale! Sure, the home could use some sprucing up— definitely in the paint and wallpaper department. But let's not discount its attributes: in amongst the six bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths are library, sun room, sitting room, exercise room, and foyer. The basement is unfinished but the attic is in tip-top shape and easily capable of supporting another bedroom and office (at the expense of workout space). Furthermore, original woodwork, gorgeous stairs, and at least one phallic chandelier dot the landscape. There's also central air and zoned heating— no small matters for an enormous 1889 house. Curbed jealously salutes the new owner.
