Built by Prairie School luminary George W. Maher for Chicago jeweler Claude Seymour in 1913, this historic mansion in Uptown’s Buena Park neighborhood is back on the market after a three year absence. At 12,000 square feet, it’s certainly a whopper and sports many original Arts & Crafts details like arched ceilings, mahogany trim, leaded art glass windows, and hardwood flooring. The paneled library, kitchen, bathrooms, and mechanical systems were all updated in 1991, according to the listing notes.
The architecturally significant home at 817 W. Hutchinson was previously available in 2011 for $5.19 million. Finding no takers, the property was reduced down to $4.5 million in 2013 and subsequently removed from the market one year later.
Now seeking $5.69 million, the property is easily Uptown’s most expensive listing. The latest price eclipses an older—and arguably more attractive—Maher-designed beauty located at nearby 750 W. Hutchinson. That home listed for just shy of $4 million back in June.
