Around the bend from a low-key pocket park, this 4-bed row house in East Lincoln Park's prestigious Mid-North District is on the market for $2.29M. The historic home, built in 1880, has a nice shine to it thanks to a marble and granite exterior. According to the brokerbabble, it's been "restored to a dramatic New York style design," though we're not exactly sure what that means. But inside you've got ornate moldings and an exposed staircase brimming with vintage charm. The eat-in kitchen sports a view of one of the home's four enclosed gardens. And there's a nifty sunroom with easy access to a walnut deck out back. Clocking in at 4,500-square feet, the home also features 11-foot ceilings, a home office, hardwood floors, and a paneled library. Too skittish to buy? You can also rent the place for $12,500 a month.
