Just from blocks Oz Park, we locked eyes with this burly 4/5.5 home in Lincoln Park. Back on the market for $2.895M, its ask has slowly inched downward from a high of $3.25M a year ago. Our first stop: the snazzy chef's kitchen with a granite waterfall island, trough sink, and walk-in pantry, which was the subject of a Better Homes and Gardens spread. She leads out to a modestly-sized family room graced by a newly-installed wall of windows. With 6,000-square feet to go around, the 3-story home has plenty of other surprises in store like a media room and a glassed-in sitting room. A fully-finished lower level, 12-foot ceilings, a wet bar, and cherry wood floors are among the other highlights. Oh, and the place gets all zen-like in a backyard full of calming influences.
