In Uptown, a historic George Maher mansion on Hutchinson Street is on the market. Maher was part of the Prairie School movement and embraced the Arts and Crafts movement. This estate sits on a street that has one of the best collections of Prairie-style homes, many of which were designed by Maher.

The property is built on what amounts to six city lots, so it’s wide and there’s a large landscaped garden. It comes with five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, eight wood-burning fireplaces, two sun rooms, a two-car garage, and a long driveway with a porte-cochere.

The first floor features a large foyer that’s framed by two sitting areas which overlook the gardens. Upstairs there are 4 large bedrooms, including a master suite which isn’t that common in older homes, according to the listing description.

The impressive estate has a big price tag: 750 W Hutchinson Street is listed for $3,995,000.

An open and airy sitting room.
Many of the fireplaces have elaborate mahogany mantels with glass mosaics.
