One of Last Mansions on LSD on Market

April 05, 2010

You could own a piece of architectural history on Lake Shore Drive in the Gold Coast.

One of the four remaining mansions on Lake Shore Drive is for sale.

Designed by the Holabird & Roche architectural firm and built in 1895, this single-family home, at 1258 N. Lake Shore Drive, is currently listed at $4.4 million. It was previously priced at $4.9 million.

The 5,162-square-foot Brownstone has four bedrooms, five baths and one half bath, as well as four fireplaces, an elevator that services four floors and a rooftop terrace overlooking Lake Michigan and Navy Pier that’s perfect for viewing Chicago’s Air and Water Show.

This Venetian Gothic Pullazzo-style home on the Gold Coast was built for real estate tycoon Arthur T. Aldis, whose brother Owen designed Holabird & Roche’s famous Marquette building in the Chicago Loop.

It was once made into an apartment building before being converted back to a single-family structure. It is one of the “Seven Houses on Lake Shore Drive District” that received a Chicago landmark designation in 1989.
