Situated a short walk from Jackson Park, Promontory Point, and the University of Chicago, this Hyde Park Tudor revival from notable Architect Howard Van Doren Shaw recently hit the market looking for a new owner. Dating back to 1895, the vintage home features five bedrooms, three-and-half bathrooms, and an upgraded chef’s kitchen. The spacious 4,000-square-foot interior is further complimented by a generously-sized landscaped rear yard, wooden deck, and detached two-car garage.
While some rooms could certainly benefit from improved staging and fresh decor (the mirrored walls of one of the bedrooms comes across as especially dated), it’s hard to beat an architecturally significant home in one of Chicago’s most culturally rich neighborhoods. Currently asking $949,500, the historic mansion is nothing short of a bargain.
