Built in 1904 by legendary architect Howard Van Doren Shaw, this estate is one of his most significant residential commissions in Chicago. The home, on a magnificent South Kenwood block, is approximately 10,000 sq. ft., excluding the full-height basement and coach house. It is sited on one of the ten largest privately owned residential lots in Chicago. The large house retains the easy flow, warm embrace, and focus on family that were Shaw hallmarks. Shaw designed and built the home at the peak of his career with the assistance of his principal protege, David Adler, whose hand is also evident. The current owners have created an enchanting home out of a work-in-progress. Much of the preparation needed to renovate and update this amazing property is complete. A visionary new owner might maintain it as a fantastic family home that also happens to be a masterpiece. Or an entrepreneur may explore a future as an exclusive bed and breakfast to serve the University of Chicago community.
