Buyers longing for the space and tranquility of the suburbs but refusing to leave the big city will find lots to like about this roomy, six-bedroom Lincoln Park mansion. The home not only offers 7,500 square feet of family-friendly interior living space, but also a yard that looks more like Wilmette than Chicago’s Near North Side. Spanning nearly three standard city lots, the property sports a stone patio, secluded landscaped lawn, and an immaculate three-and-half-car garage.
The brick and limestone construction includes six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a wrap-around front porch, and a great room and kitchen topped by overhead timber beams. The home’s finished lower level features a game room, media room, and a home gym. Escaping to the suburbs without ever leaving the city doesn’t come cheap, however. The newly-listed property is seeking $4,795,000.
