While Chicago’s Old Town Triangle neighborhood is best known for its landmarked district of historic 19th century cottages, the area is not without a few more modern architectural oddballs. Take for example this newly-listed four-bedroom, single family home on Eugenie Street.
Designed by contemporary architect Bauhs & Dring in 1978, the split-level structure features numerous light-filled spaces including an atrium-like sunroom and large kitchen with a very red breakfast nook. A landscaped rear garden, rooftop deck, and single-car garage round out the roomy property.
According to records, the not-so-traditional Old Town home last sold in 2011 for $965,000. It returned to the market yesterday with a considerable bump up to $1,695,000. Straddling the no man’s land between classic and new, it will be interesting to follow how quickly this one sells—or doesn’t.
