This 8-bedroom mansion at 2801 S. Prairie in Bronzeville was built in 1885 when this part of the city was the home of Chicago’s wealthiest citizens.
It now sits just north of the historic landmarked “Gap” district which runs from 3100 to 3500 South Prairie.
At 6,000 square feet, the house has amazing woodwork and what looks to be original stained glass windows. Click on the link to see the pictures of the magnificent staircase.
It also has 6 fireplaces.
It has no central air but there is room on the side drive for 4 cars.
There are no pictures of the bathrooms or the kitchen and there is no further written listing whatsoever on the public real estate sites that describes the property.
Will someone save this house and restore it to its former grandeur?
Frederic Scovell at Keller Williams has the listing. See the pictures here.
