In a sign of how just how far Wicker Park has come in the last ten years, this 4/3.5 greystone, which sold for a mere $325K in 2002, has returned to market for just under a mil. How's that for a return on your investment?! The 4,000-square foot home has been the beneficiary of a gut rehab, a major factor in the pricing strategy. Inside, a funky staircase adds a bit of intrigue to the combined living and dining room, favored by a large bay window. This place also ups the ante with four superb outdoor spaces, including the tranquil back yard w/ perennial plants and a babbling brook. There's also a 500-square foot roof deck with city views. Listed as high as $1.05M, the home counts a maple kitchen, finished basement, three fireplaces, and an office among its other bait.
