Just need a home that will hold the essentials? Perhaps this studio in a Lincoln Park condo building will do. Don’t worry, downsizing here means you’ll get a few perks that don’t usually come with super tiny spaces: a walk-in closet (albeit a skinny one), a balcony with city views, and quite a lot of countertop area. Plus, a price tag under $200,000.
Once you enter the studio you’re immediately in the middle of a half-entryway, half-kitchen. The refrigerator and some cabinets are near the front door, and around the corner there’s a built-in work station. The kitchen has new appliances (including a dishwasher), wide butcher block countertops, black metal industrial light fixtures, and a farmhouse sink.
Where can you sleep? The built-in Murphy bed. Whether or not that’s ideal, it’s not the only tiny space sleeping solution. Plus, the location puts you close to the Brown Line, a few major bus lines, and a five minute walk to Lincoln Park and the Lakefront Trail.
Think this is your style? 2740 N. Pine Grove Avenue Unit 19F is listed for $189,900.
