While Chicago’s Lincoln Park is becoming increasingly synonymous with tear-downs and flashy new mansions, this handsome 1888 former saloon turned single family home is a nice reminder of the neighborhood’s architectural history. Located on the corner of treelined Fremont Street in the heart of the Ranch Triangle neighborhood, the property includes the long, shotgun-like main structure plus a rear terrace and a single-bedroom coach house above its double-wide garage.
Inside the primary house, a large, open living room impresses with a 14-foot tin ceiling and plenty of natural light. This space is partitioned from an elevated kitchen and dining area by a central staircase crowned by a skylight. Upstairs, the large master suite is complimented by three additional bedrooms and two baths. The home’s finished lower level features a big family room, additional storage, and a full bathroom of its own. The unique and historical home recently hit the market seeking $2,450,000.
