Morgan Park's Ingersoll-Blackwelder House has long been a local historic attraction, built in two stages for grain broker John E. Ingersoll (1874) and then by Morgan Park Village President Isaac Blackwelder (1877). The listing pegs the home's vintage at 1865, but the Beverly Area Planning Association (BAPA) says otherwise. But it's oddness, not age, that ultimately draws people to the four-bed. The 3,750-square-footer is Queen Anne in front and Italianate at back. A more comprehensive set of photos attests to this, but the resolution of several pics is too poor to post. Anyway, the point of all this blather is that the property can be yours for $399K, chock full of original details, new marble, a solarium, and set on 0.65 acres with mature trees and a carriage house.
