Property Description

This handsome turn of the century 2-flat graces a prominent corner lot in historic Kenwood-Hyde Park. The original marble entry welcomes you into the home. The building offers approximately 4,500 sqft of sun filled living space on each level with exquisite architectural details including dramatic ceiling details, decorative plaster moldings, and hardwood, terrazzo and mosaic floors. The main level is currently configured as a 5-bedroom, 4 bath full-floor apartment and the second level has 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. The 3rd level is partially finished and includes a spacious study plus attic storage. The same size as the main and second level, the lower level includes an old-world ballroom. This home has had only three owners since it was built in the 1920s. Now it is ready for a new owner to restore it to its original grandeur, as condos, high-end rentals, or as a luxurious single-family home. This magnificent home is near The University of Chicago, the Lab School and The Ancona School as well as the lakefront, parks, entertainment, restaurants and shopping including Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. Lake Shore Drive, I-55, and I-94, as well as public transportation are easily accessible.
