Behold, Lincoln Park's Most Glorious PoMo Home Returns With Major Updates and Major Price Bump

New, 9 comments


Consider it something like the holy grail of postmodern homes in Lincoln Park. This thing is so '90s, it could have played a supporting role in Space Jam. While this angular three bedroom home looks shiny and new with its plethora of updates, it was once the subject of a very bizarre home listing when it first hit the market in May 2011 (like, almost Buffalo Bill bizarre). It's got wavy lines, glass block windows, a really sweet rooftop deck and white walls everywhere. While it can't necessarily be considered a true time capsule due to its interior makeover, this home would certainly be a perfect stage for some Memphis furniture and Patrick Nagel prints. After numerous price chops, the home sold for $839,500 in January 2014, but reenters the market this week with an ambitious $1.8 million ask.
