A three-story condo building is now selling units on the former site of the old Family Matters home in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

The original home, which was featured in the show’s opening credits, sold to a developer for $798,000 in December 2016. Last year, the frame building was razed and replaced by a contemporary, gray brick building.

While there isn’t anything left of the original home, there is a small Family Matters plaque on the front of the building. As final touches are completed, workers will add a memory wall with five framed photos to commemorate the show at the entrance of the condo.

The four-bedroom unit listed at $1,295,000 sold in just 42 days, according to the property’s agent Lissa Weinstein. Two other units, both three bedrooms, are still on the market at $950,000 and $825,000. The more expensive three-bedroom comes with access to the rooftop deck. Residents can begin moving in February 1.

The condos feature a wider layout, high-end appliances, wide-plank oak hardwood flooring, 10-foot ceilings, and a master bathroom with heated floors and a steam shower. There’s an open house on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. if you want to see the units, which overlook Wrightwood Park, for yourself.
