This traditional Chicago two-flat is in East Village, but it is only a few blocks away from Wicker Park. The best of both worlds: Quiet tree-lined streets and a busy nightlife.

The building, originally built in 1880, is split up into an owners unit at the top and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom on the first floor, which rents for about $2,000 per month.

The owners unit is about 2,000-square-feet and comes with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bathroom features double sinks, a steam shower, and a large Whirlpool tub.

There’s a 24-foot wide side yard that’s landscaped with brick paths and gardens. It’s a rare amenity in the city and both units get to enjoy it. On the top floor, a long balcony that goes from the master bedroom to the living room overlooks the peaceful greenery. Then, the rental unit’s kitchen has a panoramic view of the yard.

Located at 1037 Wolcott Avenue, this home is asking $1,698,000.
