Here’s a little coach house that sits right on the edge of an alley where West Armitage Avenue meets North Orleans Street in Lincoln Park. While the exterior is quite minimalist and set back from the alley only a few feet, the interior offers high-end appliances, bamboo and cork flooring, clean lines, and lots of open space. The home is listed for $469,000.
Just steps off Armitage, this home is right in the heart of the highly-desired neighborhood. For this price point and location it’s uncommon to find a two-bedroom, two-bathroom home that doesn’t share walls with other units, according to listing agent Michelle Berger of North Clybourn Group.
On the main level is the kitchen with Miele and Bosche appliances, an adjoining living area, and a shared outdoor patio space. The lower level holds a second bedroom, bathroom and laundry room. Upstairs is the master bedroom and a modular, bright blue tiled bathroom separated with glass panels. The three levels are connected by a custom floating staircase which finally leads up to a finished roof deck.
One important note here: There are almost no interior doors in the house. So, if a truly open home is not your style, this might not be a great fit. But if that’s no problem? Then you’ve found a home in a highly walkable and extremely bike-friendly location.
