4924 S WOODLAWN Avenue - Designed and built in 1904 by legendary architect Howard Van Doren Shaw, this estate stands as one of Shaw's most significant residential commissions in Chicago. The residence, 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 and when he had 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 has been completed. The house is looking for yet another romantic, visionary owner who will appreciate the joy of living in a masterpiece which also happens to be a fantastic family home.
