Lincoln Square is a small neighborhood just north of Ravenswood Manor near the North Branch Chicago River. Many of the area’s homes include foursquares, brick two-flats, and bungalows.
This humble green-trimmed home was built in 1920 on a wide lot which means there’s yard space and a roomier layout. It comes with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and even a sunny painting studio. While most of the home looks new, there is penny tile flooring and an art glass window in the foyer that call back to some of the home’s original features.
The two-story home has a bright living room with a bay window and a spacious dining room just off the kitchen. The kitchen is a great size with lots of cabinet storage, a walk-in pantry, and second refrigerator. Two staircases lead up to the second floor which has an open family room and a master suite with a rehabbed bathroom. The backyard features string lights, an herb garden, and a two-car garage.
It’s easy to get around as this home is right near the Brown Line’s Rockwell station and there are plenty of places to get outside like the riverside parks along the North Branch.
