Granted, most people associated 'south side' foreclosures with Englewood and Roseland and Calumet City, but there is a great diversity in the 'south side' of Chicago.
As previously posted on the topic of mansions, there are a number of residences of 7,000 and 8,000 square feet in the Chicago and suburban areas of Lake and Dupage Counties, but there are very few of them in that portion of the City referred to as the 'south side'. Jackson Park Highlands and Kenwood are two of the long-established and more desirable neighborhoods south of the city which possess such turn-of-the-century housing stock and benefit from having the world-famous University of Chicago in the neighborhood.
Even Barack Obama resides in the general area.
Bardan Azari of Cherry Picker called today and said someone gets the opportunity to snatch this proverbial castle at the foreclosure auction.

It may not LOOK like a castle, but at 116 years old and 8,510 Sq. Ft. of single family home on nearly a 1/2 acre, being a couple blocks from Lake Michigan, it might as well be a castle. The house sits on a 17,360 SF site, with is nearly 6 times larger than the typical city of Chicago site which is 3,125 SF
