This impressive urban estate was designed in 1902 for the family of lumberman Charles Adams Goodyear. Among the publications that have featured the house, Chicago Magazine selected 4840 Greenwood as one of the most beautiful houses in the city and suburbs. The article noted the exterior to be "a model of restraint ... a gorgeous piece of stone artistry." The striking facade, with its broad arched entry accented by carvings of roaring lions and serene figures, only begins to indicate the quality of the interior. Situated on nearly a half-acre of land in the historic Kenwood neighborhood, the mansion offers eight bedrooms and four full and two half-baths over three floors of living space, plus a lower level. The public rooms are elegantly detailed; the murals and bronze wall sconces are but two examples of the attention to detail given by the architect William Carbys Zimmerman and attributed to stellar artisans including Tiffany Studios. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to restore the property to its original magnificent stature, enhanced by amenities desired today.
