This 3-bedroom Victorian at 1836 N. Lincoln Park West in Old Town recently came on the market.
Built in 1876 for Charles Wacker on a smaller than average Chicago lot of 28×110, it has a 1-car garage and a brick patio in the backyard.
The listing says it has been “restored to perfection” yet many of its vintage features remain including the original moldings, shutters, staircase and Tiffany stained glass windows.
It last sold in 2008 “as-is”, but back then it was a 4 bedroom with only 1.5 baths. It is now a 3-bedroom with 2.5 baths.
All 3 bedrooms are on the second floor and there’s now a master bathroom as well so it seems that the 4th bedroom was sacrificed for the bath.
The listing says the home can be expanded to 5 bedrooms (probably by putting bedrooms in the basement.)
The kitchen has modern brown cabinets with stainless steel appliances and some kind of grey countertops (concrete or stone?).
The house has central air.
Given that there are few “new” houses in Old Town, will this sell quickly near the asking price?
Daniel Pape at Hudson Parker Realty has the listing. See the pictures here.
Or see it in person at the Open House on Sunday, July 21 from 1- 3 PM.
