A notorious link to Chicago’s violent gangster past, the former home of the underworld boss Al Capone, can be had for a steal.
Capone’s red-brick home on the Windy City’s far South Side is on the market for $225,000, MyFoxChicago.com reported.
The listing says there are three bedrooms on each floor, a new first-floor kitchen, a second-floor bathroom Jacuzzi and a two-car garage.
Capone, known as "Scarface," moved into the small home in 1923. As mob boss he ran a massive bootlegging, gambling and prostitution operation during Prohibition. He was believed responsible for the 1929 mob rubout that became known as the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. He did a stretch in Alcatraz and died in 1947.
This is not the first time the house has been for sale. It 2009 the asking price was $450,000, though there doesn't appear to have been any takers.
Records show Capone bought the house for $5,000 and lived there with his wife, mother and other family members.
Capone’s mother lived in the house until she died in 1952.
Bus tours still pass the house periodically.
