Sold before print. Hyde Park! 5142 S. Blackstone Avenue, a most wonderful 6-bedroom (with two additional bedrooms on the lower level) residence on a corner lot was built in 1892 by W. Irving Beman of the architectural firm of Beman and Parmentier. This partnership lasted only five years, but during this time they designed residences for various wealthy Chicagoans. Beman designed 5142 S. Blackstone for prominent Chicago physician W.C. Allen and his wife, Selina L. Allen. Parmentier designed the Hyde Park Club House, the Fine Arts Building, and the Pullman neighborhood among other projects. Solon Beman, Irving's brother, designed Grand Central Station, Chicago's first public library, and Marshall Field's house. This move-in ready residence encompasses over 5000 square feet of living space on three levels plus a lower level with updated electrical and plumbing. The lower level has two bedrooms, a full bath, versatile space to create a kitchen and living room plus laundry hook up. The grand main level provides open concept living. There are two primary bedrooms both with ensuites (one located on the main level), 5.5 updated baths, updated kitchen, second floor laundry, plus an abundance of storage space on every level. The breathtaking third floor with cathedral ceilings is a sanctuary for any family to enjoy. The home has been lovingly maintained by current owners who have enhanced it with many improvements, all which took place between 2016-19: roof and gutter replacement, mud room addition, enhanced foundation drainage with installation of perimeter drain with sump, whole home re-insulation and replacement of garage gutters. In addition, the home is appointed with a three-car garage, two additional exterior parking spaces and a lovely fenced-in yard with young Pluot, Plum, Amur Chokecherry, Pagoda Dogwood and Oak trees as well as perennials like tulips, hostas, rose, and lilac bushes. The beautiful home offers the opportunity for multi-generational living or potential rental income (lower-level apartment). Despite its historic appeal and turnkey status, the home is not a registered landmark so future owners can pursue updates as desired. Property is located on a corner lot, with close proximity to 53rd street shopping and dining, lake, beaches and green spaces, public transportation, The University of Chicago and The Laboratory School.
