Get a 3-Bedroom Duplex Up for Under $650,000 in East Lincoln Park: 2141 N. Clark


This 3-bedroom duplex up at 2141 N. Clark in East Lincoln Park came on the market in June 2016.

It has soaring ceilings and multiple exposures.

The kitchen has granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.

It has the preferred layout with all three bedrooms on the second floor.

There’s also a family room on the main floor that the listing says can be used as a dining room.

It has central air, washer/dryer in the unit and garage parking.

This location is truly “east” Lincoln Park. It’s just steps from the Lincoln Park Zoo.

The listing also says its in the Lincoln school district.

This unit has been reduced $14,500 to $645,000 since June.

However, it last sold only a year ago for $620,000.

Will it get the premium over the sale just 12 months ago?

  1. They should get rid of some of their custom paint. Also the aesthetics/safety of carpeting in front of a fireplace is questionable. Why don’t the kitchen cabinets go to the ceiling? Why is there 1 inch of space for schmeg to accumulate on top? Why not put cabinets over the fridge?

  2. I don’t know if it’s the unit itself or the pictures, but I get no sense of how this place would live. It seems like the floor plan is haphazard and unpleasant. On the other hand, this building is gorgeous and I imagine it will go quickly for close to asking.

  3. “Multiple exposures,” including to delightful sounds of the 22 and 36 buses. That said, given its condition, location, bedroom count/layout, w/d and garage, it’s pretty compelling for the price. But since it’s not moving, I’m guessing the street noise/fumes are the issue.

  4. Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die. Great place, good location but scared off by the 22 and 36. Then go live on a tree lined street and pay the premium.

  5. Upside – can look down street to see when the line at Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder actually isn’t insane.

    Downside – 22/36 as noted, and 22 is a 24/7 route.

    Seems like this price would be easy around the corner on Webster or Dickens or Sedgewick or Hudson, but not on Clark.
