No one endows listings with voluminous copy better than Jenny Ames of Coldwell Banker. The long passages are actually quite informative and free of grammatical land mines. They seem calibrated to guided tour. Some properties deserve such care more than others, and this 4/3.5 pre-Fire Lincoln Park home is one. Built in 1861—a full decade prior to the Great Fire—as a farm house, the facade is recognized as the oldest in West Lincoln Park according to Ames. Beyond that, original features include the wrought iron fence encircling the front yard, leaded glass windows, and fireplace mantles. The home received a 1992 renovation by architect Richard Gibbons, who brought in a rear terrace, balcony, spa bathrooms, rec room, and generally expanded the living space. Fireplaces are everywhere, even in the kitchen, as that would've been the primary heating technology of the Civil War era.
New-to-market Re-listed last week, the ask is $1,529,500.
