On the off chance our Bucktown architectural walking tour triggered an insatiable hunger for that nabe's real estate, here's a quick path to satisfaction: a $6,000 single-family rental on Hermitage just north of North. It's not like they're giving it away, but with rents outstripping appreciation everywhere in town we see far more absurd pricing all the time. The property recently asked $1.4M on the for-sale market and the six grand gets you a contemporary construction with lofted atrium, interior loft and balcony, two oversized bedroom suites, eat-in chef's kitchen, two fireplaces, patio, backyard, and garage. There's even a well-kept furnished coach house to boot sporting a third bedroom, "Finnish-style" sauna, and a wet bar — the party house, in other words.
