Mansion Renovation Opportunity on 4 City Lots!

Located in the secluded enclave of Castlewood Terrace sits this rare, all-brick, Four Square mansion on a 100×114 lot. Built in 1898 as one of the first model homes on the street, this home still features many of the original design elements, such as the Roman brick exterior, fireplaces, 10 foot ceilings, original woodwork and moldings, radiators, and more. Castlewood Terrace began in the late 1890’s as an exclusive lakefront neighborhood for affluent Chicagoans’ country homes. Wide rooms, large windows, space between neighbors, all-brick exteriors, and 50 foot wide lots were all standards for homes on this prominent street, giving the area a suburban feel still enjoyed today. This house has been owned by the same family since the 1960s, and is ready to be brought back to life for its next chapter. It will need extensive renovation, and will be a showplace once finished. The covered front porch greets you as you enter the grand foyer with a fireplace, and dramatic staircase. The kitchen features an amazing wood burning stove and oven. In fact, it was designed in 1968 to showcase two centuries of kitchens (half the kitchen is from 1968, the other half designed as an 1868 kitchen). Octagon shaped dining room features a fireplace, panoramic views of the yard, and leads to a unique and heated sunroom. The sun room features a rounded window wall overlooking the fenced yard, and is the perfect place to watch the seasons change. The second floor has three large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a shared walk-in closet/dressing room between two of the bedrooms. Plenty of options to reconfigure this floor to create an incredible primary suite. Finished attic has another three bedrooms and full bath. The basement is clean, has full height ceilings, and the boiler was new in 2020. Roof replaced and whole house tuck pointed in 2012. This house has truly one of the most coveted lots on the street–equivalent to four city lots, the yard space itself is approximately 50×114, and is the ultimate place for gardening, outdoor parties and entertaining, and room to play or relax. Two car garage currently on the property! Walking distance to the beaches along Lake Michigan, and the Lake Front Trail. Commuting downtown is simple: 146 (Gunnison
