This top floor vintage 2-bedroom at 1125 W. Belden in Lincoln Park originally came on the market in July 2015.
The building was constructed in 1896 and has 12 units.
The unit has many of its vintage features intact including wood window moldings and the original pocket doors.
The listing says it has an “antique mantle” but not that it’s the original one. But it is wood burning.
But the unit has also been updated for modern tastes.
The kitchen has wood cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.
It also has Bose speakers in the kitchen and dining room.
The unit also has other features buyers look for including central air and in-unit washer/dryer.
There’s no parking but it’s available in the neighborhood and the Fullerton brown line stop isn’t far away.
The building sits across the street from the DePaul campus which would make it ideal for a student.
Originally listed in July 2015, it has been reduced $29,000 to $350,000.
Why isn’t this selling in this hot market?
Jennifer Ames at Coldwell Banker has the listing. See the pictures here.
