Offering the kind of character and old-school details that more expensive neighboring new constructions can only dream about, this charming 19th century Lincoln Park row house is perhaps the anti-McMansion. Featuring a long, almost shotgun-like layout, the structure dates back to 1890 and features three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and a bright and attractive second floor library.
Beyond its great location in one of Chicago’s most desirable neighborhoods, the property also sports extensive original millwork, fireplaces, hardwood floors, stained glass windows, and high ceilings. As far as drawbacks, the kitchen could probably benefit from a 21st century refresh and the walk-out basement looks very unfinished.
The 2,200-square-foot greystone hit the market today for a cool $1 million—representing the first time the property has been available for more than 20 years. According to public records, it last changed hands in 1996 for a mere $275,000.
