If you're a lover of historic Chicago homes, then you may already be well aware of the housing stock on South Drexel Boulevard. The stately brownstones and greystones along this thoroughfare in the Kenwood and Bronzeville neighborhoods rival those found in Lincoln Park, Palmer Square, and even the Gold Coast. Many of the proud mansions that lined the boulevard have been demolished over the decades, however, the ones that remain offer a look back to the days when ornamentation and craftsmanship were unrivaled. This 6,000-square-foot brownstone mansion retains its beautiful exterior and many architectural details in the interior as well. Like many historic homes that need to serve the needs of modern living, the kitchen and bathrooms in this one have been updated. While a similar home in Lincoln Park or Old Town would list in the millions, this one has just hit the market with an asking price of $830,000.
