Al Capone's First Chicago Home Returns With Big Price Chop

New, 10 comments

If you're looking to own a truly unique piece of Chicago history, here's your opportunity. Built in 1908, this brick two-flat on South Prairie Avenue was once the home of notorious gangster and Chicago Outfit boss Al Capone. Capone's family moved into the building in 1923, during the early years of prohibition. The brick two-flat listed in October of 2014 asking $225,000 but it returns this week with a major price reduction. There are also a handful of photos in the latest listing. According to the listing, both apartments have three bedrooms and a single bathroom. The listing agent also states that the building's current owner is looking to unload the property and retire in California. The rather unassuming-looking house can now be had for $179,900.
