While increasingly becoming the domain of the ultra-expensive double lot mega-mansion, Lincoln Park still has some options for homebuyers seeking a reasonably-priced slice of old Chicago. Take for example this centrally located two-bedroom home on the third level of a handsome 1922 brick walk-up.
Featuring an original stone fireplace and well-maintained wooden doors, window frames, floors, baseboards, and other built-ins, the unit is big on historic charm while offering the convenience of a newly renovated kitchen. The single bathroom has also seen a refresh, but could perhaps prove small for a pair of roommates or young family.
As an added bonus, the building’s common rooftop deck offers a skyline view above Lincoln Park’s leafy treetop canopy. Currently seeking $379,000 plus a mere $180 in monthly HOA fees, the home is an attainable route to homeownership in the heart of one of the North Side’s most expensive hoods.
