In Beverly’s historic district, a home with colorful gables and original interior elements was listed for $875,000.

The Waid-Coleman house was built in 1894, and the owners have spent some time restoring and updating parts of the home. It was also featured in the Images of America book series in Mansions of Chicago by John Graf.

The entryway and formal living room are the most traditional with dark wood beams, leaded glass windows, pocket doors, and checkered tiles. However, the Nelly Minassian-designed kitchen is completely modern featuring large-tile porcelain flooring, smooth countertops, cabinetry with minimal hardware, and an induction cooktop.

The freshly painted red and green exterior is attention grabbing—there’s lots of curb appeal. That continues inside with the colorful wallpaper, like the peachy pink and gold starburst pattern in the guest bathroom, which adds a bit of charm.

Located at 9332 South Damen Avenue, the six-bedroom, four-bathroom home is has two master suites, one in the refinished attic and another with a new bathroom. There’s plenty of outdoor space with an enclosed side porch and large, manicured yard, too.
