Last April, we chattered about this 4-bedroom single family home at 2164 W. Leland in Lincoln Square and wondered how “hot” the Lincoln Square market was.
See our prior chatter here.
It was a good chatter about who are knifecatchers, what single family homes in Lincoln Square should cost, and the attributes of the house (which many of you liked).
We learned from the listing agent, Eric Rojas, that it has space pak cooling, a mudroom and it is not located on the El side of Leland.
Nearly 6 months later, the house is still available and has been reduced $24,100.
If you recall, this is considered “real” Lincoln Square as it’s just a block and a half to the shops and restaurants on Lincoln and also easy access to several brown line El stops.
The house has had updates including a custom kitchen with concrete counter tops and stainless steel appliances. (However, according to the 2008 listing- those updates had already been done by the time of that sale.)
The upstairs bathroom has a double vanity and skylights along with a claw foot tub.
Built on an oversized 37.5×123 lot, the house has a two car garage and space pak cooling.
The basement is finished and has a half bath and a recreation room and a bedroom.
Last April, the house was listed as a 3-bedroom and is now listed as a 4-bedroom.
There was an “office” in the basement in the prior listing, so I’m assuming that is now bedroom #4.
In April, some of you thought this house would sell quickly.
Has the market cooled in Lincoln Square?
