A double-wide row house on a distinguished stretch of E 56th known as 'Professors Row' has listed for $2.38M. That makes it the second-priciest piece of real estate currently on the market in Hyde Park— a hair behind Frank Lloyd Wright's Heller House. Notching 6,900 square feet, this enormous renovated playground includes seven bedrooms, three full and two half baths, attic living space with fireplace, skylights, and towering ceilings, and a "dug out basement adding 15' of height". The yard is a fine specimen and includes in-ground irrigation. Built in 1904, this pristine pad sits directly opposite Carol Moseley Braun's former place. Will it emulate Braun's price collapse?
