Lots of vintage Chicago apartments that are located on corner lots have big, round turrets, creating an almost rotunda-like room that can be difficult to furnish. The owners of this place at the corner of Armitage and Kenmore in Lincoln Park found a solution: convert the round room into a restaurant-style cubby with a built-in banquette. This place is brightly colored, but it seems to fit with style of the Victorian row houses and boutiques surrounding the Armitage Brown Line station in Lincoln Park. The 2BD, 2BA condo has 2,000 square feet of floor space, and it's currently listed for $575,000 — about $100K more than the current owner paid for the place in 2003.
