We’ve chattered about this 1-bedroom coach house at 2011 N. Kenmore in Lincoln Park several times over the last few years.
Check out our last chatter, in April 2012, here.
After originally listing for $349,000 in 2010, in April, the price had finally been reduced under $300,000 and some of you still thought that it was priced too high.
One guessed not more than $250,000. Another said $199,000.
It finally sold at the end of October 2012 for $260,000.
If you recall, it was a unique property. It was a duplex loft-like unit with skylights, exposed brick and exposed pinewood ceilings.
The last listing said it “feels like Aspen.”
The kitchen was newer and had white cabinets, stainless steel appliances and black limestone countertops.
The listing said a new half bath was added and that the master bathroom had been completely renovated with a new rain shower.
A couple of years ago, the Groove thought it was one of the “coolest quirkiest listings on cribchatter” and he especially liked its Battlestar Galactica vibe.
It had central air but no parking. The garage in the picture is for the building on the other side of the coach house.
This unit still sold over the 2003 purchase price.
Does this sale make you re-think the Lincoln Park market- even for 1-bedrooms?
Jennifer Mills at Koenig & Strey Real Living had the listing. You can still see the interior pictures here.
