Pre-Chicago Fire Painted Lady Still on the Market 3 Years Later: 2029 N. Seminary in Lincoln Park

We’ve chattered about this 4-bedroom Victorian at 2029 N. Seminary in Lincoln Park several times over the last few years.

See our September 2012 chatter here.

It came on the market in 2010. Last year, some of you were surprised it hadn’t yet sold.

Built in 1861 on a 25×124 lot, the house pre-dates the Chicago fire (making it among the oldest houses we’ve ever chattered about) and the oldest in West Lincoln Park.

The listing says it was originally a farmhouse.

With 3 fireplaces it still has its antique mantles and leaded glass.

It also has the modern amenities of central air and a 2-car garage.

The extensive listing says it was last renovated in 1992 (when it also last sold.)

The kitchen has white cabinets and black appliances.

It has reduced $45,400 in the last 12 months.

Is this house not selling because buyers want “new”?

Jennifer Ames at Coldwell Banker still has the listing. See the pictures and floorplan here.

  5. The place was under contract earlier this year, so there is def a real chance of a hidden issue.
