PriceSpotter is Curbed's asking price guessing game. We provide you with some details and pictures from an apartment listing, and you take a crack at the price in the comments. Friday Monday we reveal the answer. And hey, no cheating!

What/Where: A renovated 4/2.5 Queen Anne Victorian in Old Irving Park
Size: 2,200 square feet

The Skinny: The vintage of this delicate and lacy Queen Anne is variously listed as 1873 (MLS) and 1861 (Public Records). Either way it's older than you. If you're looking for a house to read you bedtime stories, this is it. Registering four bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a media room & wet bar, jacuzzi, and a finished basement fit for a "teen/nanny suite" (please, not a teen nanny), the unjustly photographed home also has a medley of vintage features like a wraparound porch, original trim, hardwood floors, and arched windows. Set in a "country-like" area a half block from the Kennedy ("strategically-located" rants the listing), the anomalous property occupies a huge 44' x 175' corner lot yet rubs shoulders with a multi-unit building. We're not gonna lie, this is a real stumper. Hazard a guess, anyone?
