This 3-bedroom in The Marlborough at 2608 N. Lakeview in East Lincoln Park just came on the market.
Built in 1912, The Marlborough is one of the original grand dames of Lincoln Park, with park and pond views.
This unit has seen a complete overhaul since its last sale in 2014.
The listing says it has new hardwood floors, electric, windows and copper pipes.
Most interestingly of all, the kitchen wall was busted open to make an open living concept floor plan with a large kitchen peninsula overlooking the family room/den.
The kitchen has white cabinets and 2 inch Brazilian Quartzite on the peninsula and stainless steel appliances.
There’s also a Dual 48 bottle wine cooler.
The bedrooms have walk-in Elfa closets and ensuite bathrooms.
The third bedroom, as it is in many of these larger vintage units, used to be the maid’s room. They have installed a wall of storage which includes a murphy bed (be sure to check out the pictures in the listing.)
The unit has in-unit washer/dryer and zoned, split cooling system with remote controls but there’s no parking with this building. It is rental in the neighborhood.
Despite its renovation, it still has some of its vintage features like crown molding and a decorative fireplace.
Is the open concept living a vast improvement on this vintage unit or will vintage buyers be turned off?
Christopher Sterling at @Properties has the listing. See the pictures here.
