A condo designed by Prairie School architect George W. Maher in historic Hyde Park has landed on the market this month.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home sits on tree-lined Ellis Avenue. It’s retained a lot of its character through original woodwork and grand double-wide doors, but pretty wallpaper and a whimsical mural-like wall covering in the children’s room give the space a fresh look.
The living room is remarkable with elegant double arches that frame a large fireplace and an adjacent bright, spacious sunroom. Upstairs there are two bedrooms with bathrooms en suite and beautiful walk-in cedar closets. The master bedroom has a dream closet with glass-paneled built-ins and a window bench.
The home also comes with a chef’s kitchen, 10-foot ceilings, a marble bath and shower, custom floor-to-ceiling built-ins, a large grassy backyard, and garage parking.
If this stately home is for you, 5024 S. Ellis Avenue Unit 2 just underwent a $26K price chop was listed for $699,000 on Friday afternoon.
