House of the Day: 398 Park Place


This landmarked sandstone house at 398 Park Place in Prospect Heights was designed by Magnus Dahlander and Alex Hedman and built in about 1894 by developer William Reynolds. The style is a Renaissance and Romanesque Revival blend ornamented by lots of carved panels. The top level looks like a mansard roof but is flat; it’s actually pressed metal, also with decorative panels.

The house is a tad narrow at 18.25 feet but has quite a few details inside, including inlaid parquet floors, stained glass and old doors. It’s set up as two floor-through rentals over an owner’s duplex; the latter has been updated and has central air. While some of the updates feel a little random to us, everything looks to be in good condition. What do you think of the house and the ask of $2,950,000?
