There's an opening in one of Chicago's real Beaux Arts stunners. The floor-through 5/4 condo at 2344 N Lincoln Park West measures 4,250-square-feet and (as floor-through would suggest but not guarantee) has four exposures, including that rather special park-facing one. The decor has a calculated serenity with rugs, art, and pianos in all the right places. The master bed manifests this well courtesy of some strange wall cushioning and folding Japanese curtain panels. We also dig the unit's large foyer, pocket doors, and parquet floors. But the best might be the formal dining room, a blitzkrieg of ornament. The kitchen is peculiarly-angled, but by no means unworkable. Oh yeah, can't forget the sitting room. Must be nice to have so many rooms as to run out of meaningful designations. New-to-market, this sizable chunk of architect K.M. Vitzthum's 1916 gem (his first known Chicago commission; he would go on to build the Old Republic Building and have a hand in the Frances Cabrini Homes) can be yours for a cool $2.8M.
