Local architectural hero Howard Van Doren Shaw may have built superb churches, factories, and suburban mansions, but he also took time to pepper the neighborhoods with humble residences. One of these stripped-down but fully agreeable homes is the 3,000 square-foot six-bed at 4925 S Blackstone Avenue. Built in 1895, the facade has a cool blend of brick and red stone. Inside, original details are intact: wood trim and built-ins, staircase, ornamental fireplaces, and oak floors. The third floor is a vaulted space that combines bedrooms with a lounge and office. The home also has newer mechanicals and a sheltered side lot for yard and/or patio usage. Returning to market after a drawn out listing period that saw the ask drop from $995K to $815K, the new ask is $825K.
