ELITE STREET | By Bob Goldsborough | Sally Blount, Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management’s new dean, has paid $885,000 for a six-bedroom brick Georgian-style house in Evanston. Blount joined Kellogg in July after serving as a dean at New York University.

Built in 1923, the 10-room house is just two blocks from Lake Michigan and has 3 1/2 baths, a master bedroom with a sleeping porch, a first-floor family room, and an updated kitchen with a Wolf stove, Carrara marble counters and a butler’s pantry.

The house had been listed for $980,000 and was reduced to $939,000 in May. Blount closed on the purchase on Aug. 31.
