Today we welcome to Curbed's auspicious Under $300K Club this one-bed ground-floor vintage unit in Lincoln Park's ripply Marlborough building, designed by architect to the aristocrats Robert S. DeGolyer. And, per the brokerbabble, the location couldn't get any more "blue chip"— it's across the street from park, lake, and lagoon. The "cozy Maissonette" apartment isn't as small or as dingy as you might reckon from the price tag. It measures 1,100 square feet with hardwoods throughout, a handsome paint job, and separate living room and dining room. Plus you get to treat the building's grandiose marble foyer as your own direct entryway. Suck it penthouse floor! Selling last in 2006 for $235K, the new ask is $259K with $848 in monthly assessments. One mark against it is the extra $240/month for garage parking.
