A four-bedroom, 6,671-square-foot vintage Mediterranean-style mansion in Elmhurst sold in late September for $2.4 million. A four-bedroom Mediterranean-style mansion in Elmhurst that is a prominent local landmark sold on Sept. 26 for $2.39 million — more than 36% less than the sellers had sought for the home when they first listed it last year.
Built in 1929 and located just south of downtown Elmhurst, the ivy-covered mansion was owned in the early 1950s by Burl Dollens, who was the general manager of General Motors’ former Electro-Motive Division locomotive plant in McCook. The sellers paid $1.5 million for the mansion in 2001 and remodeled and expanded it in 2004.
The 6,671-square-foot mansion has six bathrooms, seven fireplaces, a first-floor English pub, a custom Amish kitchen, a finished basement and a four-car garage. Outside on the 0.73-acre property — which is unusually large for Elmhurst — are a renovated pool and spa, bluestone walkways and patios, an expansive front lawn, a gazebo, extensive gardens and a covered terrace with an outdoor garden.
