This bright four-bedroom residence in Lincoln Park’s Shakespeare co-op building offers a mix of historic architecture, attractive transitional decor, and an enviable location across from the park for just under $800,000.
Completed by Dwight H. Perkins in 1910—just two years after the architect designed nearby Café Brauer at Lincoln Park Zoo—the building features a handsome multicolored brick facade with Prairie School ornamentation.
Inside, the third-floor home offers a flowing 2,700-square-foot floorplan with a foyer, formal dining room, spacious living room, updated kitchen, home office, and a gorgeous enclosed sun porch.
“It’s an unbelievable opportunity for someone who wants to get into the area, and is comparable to more expensive single-family homes,” said listing agent Joanne Nemerovski of Compass. “It’s literally on the park, overlooking the zoo, conservatory, and Francis Parker School.”
The sunny unit at 2238 N. Lincoln Park West Unit F3 is currently listed for $799,000—recently reduced from $829,900.
Because the property is a co-op, owners must pay a monthly fee of $2,646. It includes just about everything: property taxes and insurance, utilities like heat, water, and cable, and building amenities such a full-time engineer, access to a shared yard, and a single parking space.
