Fred Scovell of Keller Williams Realty – West Loop included 16 great photos with his listing for the mansion at 2801 S Prairie Ave on the Near South Side, but absolutely no text. Why bother with a writeup, when anyone who Googles the address is going to find this entry on the Chicago Landmarks page anyway?
The Wood-Maxey-Boyd House is a Queen Anne-style home that dates back to the 1880s, when “Lower Prairie” was the place to be. According to the Landmarks Commission, it was designed by John C. Cochrane, who also designed the landmarked All Saints Church and Rectory at 4550 N Hermitage Ave and the Capitol Building in Springfield.
The 6,000 square-foot, eight-bedroom / five-bath home is listed for $850,000.
