Dazzling Max Adler Mansion Sells $1M Below Ask at $3.95M

New, 16 comments

It took just 14 weeks for the South Side's most opulent home to go under contract, and a sale is now official at $3.95M. If you weren't here for it in April, we're talking about the 11,500-square-foot Kenwood mansion built in 1914 for Sears exec and planetarium founder Max Adler (hence the mood-lit lead photo at dusk). The 18-room home enjoys a 0.8-acre lot at Greenwood & 49th and is flanked by dense English gardens. The property's details are astounding, returned to early splendor through $3M in renovations. Even the driveway is brick herringbone. Thanks Arthur Heun!
