In Grant Park, 1890 Queen Anne Victorian aims for $929K

New, 22 comments

It’s 4,300 square feet of beautiful restoration, but will it sell at nearly $1M?

There’s no doubt about it: This Queen Anne-style dwelling built about 125 years ago seems to have been refined and updated into a real knockout.

At nearly $929,000, will it find an owner to appreciate all its historic beauty? That would set the bar for single-family home sales in the neighborhood, though one other grandly restored (and huge) house is aiming for $900,000+ now too.

Situated two blocks from Grant Park's famed greenspace, the four-bedroom, five-bathroom, 4,300-square-foot home was "meticulously" renovated and includes much of the original interior pieces and details.

Updates by the current owners include an electronic gate at the driveway entrance, overhaul of all the home’s systems, re-sheetrocking, new appliances, ceramic backsplash, granite countertops, faucets, fixtures, and a whole new paint job inside.

The original stuff: heart-of-pine flooring, Judges paneling, built-in shelving, butler’s pantry, and pocket doors.

On the second floor, there’s a custom pulley system (what? cool!) for moving furniture and heavy items to other levels of the house. There’s also laundry rooms on every floor.

It’s got cool stuff from back in the day and snazzy new gadgets too, but will a homebuyer shell out nearly $1 million in old GP? Time will tell.
