On the stately stretch of Fullerton just outside DePaul's grasp lies a large litter of 19th Century victorian homes. The luckier ones, like this 5,700 square-foot stone number, have covered wrap-around porches and large front and back yards. Built in 1897 with a mid-90s restoration, this 17-room brick & limestone house has large formal rooms, five beds, five-and-a-half baths, two grand fireplaces, leaded windows, kitchen with coffered ceilings and deck access, vintage woodwork, 3-car garage, and a finished basement with bed, lounge, gym and a dozen or so ridiculous disc carpets scored like pies. The lot is extra wide and extra deep. Basically, except for the basement's departure, this place has grandeur. Fetching $1.865M in 2002, the new ask is $2.495M.
