If you could boil Lincoln Park down to one word, what would it be? Wealth? Perhaps ostentatious? Lincoln Park is an area with a rich history and equally rich architecture, but over the decades it has witnessed a major transformation that has seen a major change in both its demographics and housing stock. It’s a relief when you see a house that has some real character to it.
This old row home on Lincoln Avenue is one of those houses where you get a glimpse into what Lincoln Park was like years ago. It’s colorful and a bit eccentric, but it’s just a really neat house with a lot of character. And speaking of, it’s clear that the owner wants to keep this one in tact. The listing ends with a sentence in all-caps stating, “BRING YOUR BUYERS WHO LOVE VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURE.”
This one has hit the market asking $1.65 million.
- 1928 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60614 [Estately]
