Ernest Hemingway's Boyhood Home Lands a Buyer

The 3-flat childhood home of Ernest Hemingway will soon be back in private hands, with Friday's revelation that a buyer has been found for the 1906 Oak Park house. The $525K listing just went under contract, so no final sale price has been determined. Closing is scheduled for June 12. The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park chose to unload the property in February after plans to convert the house into a learning center collapsed. The rationale was that a private buyer would be better suited to return the subdivided structure to single-family use. The three units have a combined six bedrooms, four baths, and 4,200-square-feet.
