Full Floor Beaux Arts Beauty on Lincoln Park Returns to the Market: 2344 N. Lincoln Park West

We’ve chattered about this full floor 5-bedroom at 2344 N. Lincoln Park West several times over the last 2 years.

See our May 2013 chatter here.

It’s still available and has returned to the market.

Built in 1916, it commands the entire floor of a 6-unit building with 4 exposures, including Lincoln Park and the lake front.

The building has an elevator and there is rare 2-car parking with the unit.

It has the features you would expect from construction in this era including crown molding and wainscoting.

The unit has a 35 foot foyer and a formal dining room.

It also has space pak cooling and a washer/dryer in the unit.

Originally listed at $2.8 million in 2012, it has been reduced to $2.15 million.

Many of you thought it would sell for around $2 million.

With low inventory, is 2014 the year it sells?

Michael Shenfeld at Koenig & Strey Real Living has the listing. See the pictures here.

Unit #3: 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, 4250 square feet, 2 car parking

  1. Beautiful curb appeal and great location. I’ll pass though; needs a 5th bathroom. What if the whole family and the butler gets food poisoning? Would hate to draw the short straw in that situation. Isn’t it time we all start being irrationally exuberant again?

    Another dream apartment. Place has everything.. lovely architecture, great views, fine location, and reasonable assessments for a place this age and size.
    I’d change the kitchen- it’s a little too sterile.
    Still, a great place, surprised it has not sold.

    Though my FIRST choice, if I had the kind of money it would take to live in something like that, would be this place at 2430 N Lakeview, which I consider to be THE most beautiful vintage multi-family building in Chicago:


  4. So anonny *didn’t* buy it!

  5. Laura, there is a big difference between 2 million and 4 million but a nice place all the same.

    Eliot, are you Jenny’s father?

  6. those tax increases are ridiculous. 50% increase in 2 years? this city is fvcked.

  7. “those tax increases are ridiculous. 50% increase in 2 years?”

    And *still* *under*taxed, if it is worth even $2mm even. Should be over $30,000.

  8. I’m holding out for the PH.
