Last summer we fixed our eye on a peculiar tudor home in Kenwood, listed at the time for a shade under $1M. Not only is the style a little anomalous to this South Side nabe loaded with rapturous Victorians and Colonial Revivals, it contains a super cool cathedral-ceilinged wing branching off the main house. We've seen others like it in the Beverly/Morgan Park area, but it's still a real treat. Today's news is the house has a buyer at $885K. That's down from a mid-2010 high of $1.2M in a prior stint on the market. What sold it? Had to have been the floral brokerbabble: "Look!! An enchanting and magical English Tudor cottage sited on a quiet, tree and flower filled Kenwood street brings the romance of 1926 into the 21st century..." [our emphasis]. Equally captivating: the French doors; marble fireplace; skylit attic bedroom; buxom backyard; and, the generally curvaceous rooms and doorways. Sorry, you had your chance.
