The people of Beverly love the old mansions overlooking Longwood Drive, so don’t be surprised if someone snatches up this hilltop home in short order. The 1889 Colonial-style home at 10154 S Longwood Dr was listed today as an estate sale priced at $600,000, $15,000 below its 2002 sale price.
The three-story mansion, located on a 75′ x 210′ lot, has 15 rooms and more than 4,000 square feet of living space “just awaiting your magical touch,” says the listing from Alicia Larrieu-Ward of Century 21 S.G.R. It features “spectacular chandeliers & original woodwork, breathtaking staircases, stain & leaded glass windows, plus much more.”
2009 taxes are $7,737 with a homeowner exemption. The home is located about 0.3 miles from the 103rd Street Metra station, from which a commuter can reach the LaSalle Street station downtown in about 30 minutes.
