The Lincoln Park neighborhood is home to one of the priciest ZIP codes in the city, so it is not surprising to find this historic brick house with a modern interior for a little over $2.5 million.

This six bedroom, five and a half bathroom home comes with high ceilings, extra large windows and skylights, a glass staircase, Carrara marble, radiant heated flooring, rich wallpaper and tiling, and a stunning backyard. The finishes are bright, contemporary, and add character to the space—like the moody satin wallpaper and three distinct fireplace mantels.

Like many renovated mansions in the neighborhood, the property sits on an oversized lot giving the interior an extra 24 feet of width. That space makes the bedrooms, hallways, and other areas of the house feel spacious. In Chicago, a traditional lot for a home measures 25 by 125 feet since the city’s earliest days.

In March 2018, the home sold for $2,375,000, according to public records. Much of the interior’s finishes, tilework, and notable design elements appear to be same except for the kitchen and some built-ins. Although, in a year and a half, the neighborhood has seen a significant change. A short five minute walk away, the Lincoln Commons development opened in spring with an Equinox gym, Kohlers Water Spa, restaurants, shops, and glassy residential high-rises.

2338 N. Geneva Terrace is listed for $2,575,000.
