New to the market but old to the city is this three bedroom, two and a half bathroom row house designed by Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan in 1885, and for $1.285 million, this piece of Chicago history can be yours. It's one of five town homes in the landmark row—the Ann Halsted Row Houses—at 1826 N Lincoln Park West. The abundant original wood molding and fixtures throughout the home, the built-in hutch, marble mantels on all four fireplaces, and the original stained glass windows in the living room keep the home tied to its history. And though the white, modern finishes of the newly renovated kitchen and bathrooms interrupt the home's otherwise historic character, their usefulness seems to outweigh the aesthetic of continuity. The manicured gardens in the backyard, landscaped by Maria Smithburg, round out the home's antique elegance. And when the flowers and hibernate for the winter, it's still green year-round at the Lincoln Park Conservatory and Zoo—just one block away.
