Sprawling property at park’s cusp has lofted office upstairs, cottage-like garage around back

An old Grant Park house for sale for $849,000.
The ultimate sweet-tea porch?

Despite the $849,900 asking price, the listing for this 1907 relic in Grant Park advises prospective occupants to, “Buy now before values skyrocket from upcoming neighborhood amenities.”

The price might not be small, but neither is this house, with a clawfoot tub shy of 4,400 square feet, five bedrooms, and a full-blown loft office upstairs.

As such, the listing claims the $193/square-foot breakdown is below average for the area, though nothing of comparable size is available in Grant Park. (This slightly larger, Victorian titan did trade for an even $900,000 last winter, though.)

Described as a blend of traditional (see the massive, blue-ceilinged porch) and Victorian styles, this old gal stands across the street from the neighborhood’s celebrated greenspace.

Inside, guests are greeted by a deep foyer wide enough for a fanciful couch, which branches off to numerous, generous rooms with 11-foot ceilings and gorgeous hardwoods.

Elsewhere, ornate furnishings and chandeliers look right at home alongside six working fireplaces and old-timey bathtubs. Per the listing, that airy upstairs office loft (with kitchen and separate entrance) can rent for about $1,500, if needed.

Around back, find multiple levels of hangout options and what could be Grant Park’s cutest detached two-car garage (with dormers!).

Collectively, it’s described as “Historic Grant Park at its finest,” although that other titan might have beef with that.
