In Lincoln Park, a four-flat brick building with a Japanese style outdoor space is on the market for $2,497,747.

This 107-year-old home sits on a quiet street just south of Diversey and is a few minutes from Lincoln Park. The owners unit is a top floor duplex that features original woodwork, a grand fireplace, and sleek wood built-ins. There’s a spacious living room adjacent from a sunroom that opens out to a small private balcony. In the dining room, there are special stained and leaded glass windows.

The master bedroom of the owners unit is on the top floor and was designed by architect Masami Takayama. There is a sliding shōji, which is a room divider with translucent covering over a wooden frame, that opens to a rocky, zen water garden. A highlight of the minimally designed bathroom is an inviting, wooden Japanese soaking tub.

Two full floor units occupy the rest of the building and new owners could rent out or rehab into modern condos, the listing description suggests. Also, there’s a garage with two parking spaces, and one space outside.

Located at 2737 North Hampden Court, this property is listed by Michael Rosenblum with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff.

The fireplace is flanked by shōji-inspired built-ins.
The large dining room features six vintage windows.
The owners unit has a white, kitchen separate from the living area.
The master bedroom has a clean, minimal style.
The bathtub looks out onto a private patio with landscaping.
