The main drawback of converting a storefront to a single-family home is that many commercial spaces don't have as many windows as normal homes. To overcome that, whoever converted this old Lincoln Park storefront into a home added some big skylights that shine down on the dining room, as well as a large lofted area. The place now has four bedrooms, four baths, and 5,200 square feet of floor space. It also has five fireplaces, a large roof deck, and it comes with a garage. The home has been on and off the market since 2009, and in the past year it was reduced from $1.7 million to the current price of $1.2 million.
