This McCormick Rowhouse at 836 W Chalmers in DePaul is now under contract.
Purchased in 2007 for $1,400,000, it was originally listed in 2010 for $ 1,295,000. It was reduced in February to $ 979,000, and then finally sold. When it closes, we will learn at what low price it finally sold.
The historic 1885 home is 20 x 114′, and includes 2 outside parking spaces. The soapstone fireplace mantles are still intact, and the woodwork on the staircase and mouldings is fantastic.
The McCormick Row house District was built to supply rental housing for the McCormick Theological Seminary, which operated in Lincoln Park from 1863 – 1975. This was named a Chicago Landmark Historic District in 1977.
