Designed in 1887 by architect S.E. Okerlund in the “Second Empire” French-inspired style, this roomy mansion is a handsome mixture of old and new. Located at 4752 N. Beacon Street, the historic home is in the Sheridan Park neighborhood within the larger Uptown community area and is a contributing structure to the Chicago-landmarked Dover Street District.
Behind the attractive exterior, the old school mansion features five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, an updated eat-in kitchen, and a renovated open plan ground floor. Despite numerous modern upgrades, historic details such as the home’s rich millwork, hardwood floors, and staircase remain. A fully furnished lower level, home office, and attic family room provide even more space to spread out.
In addition to its 6,000-square-foot interior, the newly-listed home is situated on the equivalent of three standard sized city lots and features a large yard, detached four-car garage, and a patio with an outdoor fireplace. The property hit the market over the weekend seeking $1.5 million. According to records, it last sold four years ago for $1.1 million.
