If you love classic Chicago home types, it’s hard to resist all the cute steep-gabled workers cottages in Wicker Park. This one for sale also boasts a grassy backyard and a designer rehab. And yes, the price tag reflects those perks—it’s on the market for a bit under a million.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home was built in 1885 like many other workers cottages in the neighborhood. It has the signature decorative lintels above the windows, but instead of a raised staircase, the sidewalk on this street is raised.

The entire home was rehabbed by the owners over the past few years with special help from a Chicago-based boutique interior design firm, KitchenLab Interiors.

The home features detailed tilework, beautiful built-in cabinetry, and a dramatic beamed master bedroom ceiling. In the kitchen, there’s custom deep navy cabinets with gold hardware, a large quartz island, and a shiplap ceiling. The appliances are top of the line: a Bosch refrigerator and dishwasher plus a glamourous La Cornue stove and range.

There’s a sliding glass door off the kitchen that leads to an outdoor deck. The other outdoor space is a fenced-in backyard with grass and minimal landscaping.
