Built by the prominent Chicago architects Horatio Wilson and Oliver Marble in 1891, this handsome three-story limestone row house is a fine example of the architecture for which the historic South Kenwood Landmark District is known. What unites the exterior and interior are remarkably intact details - from concave shell detailing of the facade, to the intricate mosaic floor of the entry, to dramatic carved staircase rising three stories. The main level has been meticulously restored and features a double parlor and formal dining room with new hardwood floors, while the kitchen has all of the modern conveniences. On the upper two levels are 5 bedrooms with 3 full baths, and a large laundry. The finished lower level adds 1,300 sq ft with an in-law suite, w/ full bath, kitchenette, wine storage, media room and play area. A brick patio and garage are accessed through a sky-lit sunroom. In move-in condition, this beautiful family home awaits the next chapter of its amazing history.
