An 1856 Italianate specimen has just landed on the MLS in Old Irving Park. Expensive even for this proud micro neighborhood, the home's heft, its five-and-a-half lot siting (.4 acres), and a slew of improvements including a new roof, porch, and paint job make the $1.79M asking price perhaps attainable. Twenty years the Clarke House's junior still renders this house awfully ancient... for Chicago. And there's enough jazzy old stuff to hold onto: crystal chandeliers; leaded glass doors; arched doorways; three fireplaces; and a pretty awesome portico.
