Rogers Park Prairie Style Two Flat Begs to Be a Single Family Home Again

New, 4 comments

This old house in Rogers Park has seen its better days, but hopefully it's got more good days ahead of it. It's got beautiful bones and with a little bit of work, could once again be a stunning single family home. According to the listing agent, the home was designed by Prairie School architect George Grant Elmslie and built in 1912. At some point, the home was converted into a two-unit flat, but fortunately, many of its original architectural details remain. The home even has a matching detached coach house and garage, but it's currently in a critical state. It'd be a real shame if someone were to get to it and rip out all of the millwork, built-ins and art glass windows, so here's to hoping that this old house get some well deserved attention. While the home does need a considerable amount of work and restoration, architecture buffs could consider it a steal at only $500,000.
