Built in 1906, the home has 17 rooms
The house next door to President Obama’s Chicago home is up for sale.
In what’s apparently a historically unique opprtunity, the turn-of-the-century, 17-room home in the posh Hyde Park neighborhood — the Obamas’ direct neighbor to the north — went on sale September 11 2009.
Interested buyers are required to register with the real estate agent. The sale process will unfold over the next six weeks. Bi-weekly tours will be scheduled through September and into October.
The current residents, Bill and Jacky Grimshaw, have lived in the home since 1973.
