This 1920s Victorian in Grant Park should appeal to the sort of nostalgic buyer who’d fancy an antique toilet with a wall-mounted, overhead tank.
And that’s just the beginning, here on Grant Street, of inimitable details that clearly didn’t come from a Home Depot bargain bin.
Find this gorgeous old home two blocks west of the neighborhood’s marquee greenspace, toward a forthcoming local brewery and more, offering three bedrooms and two bathrooms across a single level.
The listing’s claim that “this home has all the historic charm you crave coupled with the updates you desire” doesn’t seem off-base, as this stone-cold classic looks meticulously well-kept (and enhanced).
Throwback perks include stained glass, original trim and moldings, 12-foot ceilings, and a ridiculous wealth of beautifully restored fireplaces (five total). That means almost every room has a fireplace.
Speaking of room, the 1,868 square feet might be tight for some families, especially given the one-floor layout. But the property doesn’t lack for space elsewhere, from the lovely porch with two fans, elevated back deck, and alley-accessed pad for two vehicles.
Next to location, the shinning star here could be the updated, meandering kitchen, described as a “chef’s dream” with its Sub-Zero fridge and granite countertops adjoining a (rather small) back family room.
It might not be a sprawling, ornamented Victorian mansion. But for $525,000, this place has soul to spare.
