1908 Grant Park Beauty Lands Contract in Seconds Flat

New, 37 comments

Seven achingly charming fireplaces included? Check

This stately old gal from 1908 moseyed onto the market last Friday at $659,900 and quickly went under contract. Maybe it was the flapping Old Glory out front that got Memorial Day buyers in the offer-submitting mood?

Or maybe it was the seven beautiful fireplaces, transom windows, and original bannister? Or the five bedrooms? Or three legitimately large options for outdoor relaxation? Or that a home with this vintage actually has a two-spot garage?

Those factors apparently trumped the fact it's not a sprawling old mansion (2,340 square feet), and it's located on somewhat busy Boulevard, and not the section that fronts the park. (It's a whole block away).

The listing stresses the house has been "lovingly restored with care and attention," and it certainly looks like it.
