Welcome to the Armour House! First time on the open market in approximately 90 years. This remarkable home has a rich Chicago history and many original features have been perfectly preserved. Built in approximately 1915 for Mrs. Elizabeth Montgomery Ward by the renowned architect Van Doren Shaw, this home displays meticulous details beyond anything available in today's construction. Purchased by Lester Armour, the infamous meat packer / banker, in 1921 and then purchased in the 1930s by the current owners, industrialists behind Standard Screw Company / Stanadyne. Featuring over 14,000 square feet in the main home and an additional 2400 square feet in the coach house, this historic mansion sits two doors from Lake Michigan and Lincoln Park. Situated on a secluded section of Wellington Avenue on an oversized 70 by 140 lot with a gated driveway off Wellington Avenue and gated alley access. Grand marble and limestone entryway leads to an impressive center staircase that leads to all four floors of the home. Second floor holds expansive living spaces with an enormous living room, formal dining room, library and amazing three season room. Spread throughout the home are 11 bedrooms, 7 full baths and 3 half baths. The home has a working elevator and a working dumbwaiter.
