The South Side community of Kenwood is an area of Chicago known for its inventory of historic homes from prominent architects. Take for example the neighborhood’s Richard Nash House designed by John Edmund Oldaker Pridmore in 1895. The British-American architect was behind of number of Chicago’s early 20th Century theaters as well as River North’s 1901 Bush Temple of Music.
Featuring rich millwork and high quality craftsmanship throughout, the house is big on architectural pedigree. It’s also just big in general thanks to seven bedrooms and five bathrooms spread out across more than 6,500 square feet of living space. If that isn’t enough space, the large lot also includes a two-bedroom coach house above its freestanding garage.
The three-story mansion at 4841 S. Greenwood Avenue returned to the MLS today seeking $1.7 million. The latest price represents at $500,000 reduction compared to its asking price of $2.2 million in May. While the kitchen (and bizarre mirror and acoustic tile-clad nook) could use updating, the original historic details more than make Nash House a one-of-a-kind South Side gem.
