Located in the heart of Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, this three-bedroom home situated inside an 1887 former police station is far from your run-of-the-mill condo property. Once occupied by the CPD’s 40th Precinct, the 19th century building has been transformed into a mixed-use structure with ground level retail space topped by a spacious 4,000-square-foot residence.
While the listing photos mostly show the home without furniture—or with questionable digital staging—it’s still easy to appreciate its roominess, natural light, retiled bathrooms, and updated kitchen. The pièce de résistance, however, is the home’s private roof deck. Perfect for entertaining large groups, it features a hot tub, a full outdoor kitchen, a bathroom with a shower, multiple sitting areas, gas fire pits, and heat lamps.
Though a gated driveway and garage provide space to park three vehicles, the condo’s primo Halsted Street location means shopping, dining, and live theatre are just a short walk away. The home hit the market in 2014 seeking a cool $2.2 million. After selling in 2015 for $1.8 million the property is back. It can currently be picked up for $2.15 million plus $520 in monthly HOA fees.
