Rare opportunity to own a piece of Chicago history in the heart of Lincoln Park! The Lincoln Ave Row-House District was built in the Italianate Architectural style, distinguished by large blocks of Joliet Limestone circa 1875 immediately following the great Chicago fire of 1871, by Andrew McNally (if only the walls could talk!). This limestone facade Italianate style row home has only had three owners and has been in the same family, and lovingly maintained, for over 70 years. Many cool original features include the Iron gate as you make your approach, grand staircase and wood banister, transom doorframe windows,...fireplace mantles, some original nail-head wood flooring, 12+ foot ceilings, bayed windows, extra wide baseboard molding, plaster walls with picture molding, and more! This storied home is situated on a corner lot with East, South and West exposure and is in the middle of everything Lincoln Park and Old Town have to offer. Enjoy outdoor living areas on the fabulous wood deck or California Patio (which used to be a hotdog stand back in the day) plus a one car garage, plenty of storage and room to expand. Need a rental, in-law or nanny suite? The garden level features a rehabbed one bedroom/one bath apartment with a separate entrance (which has been used as a legal vacation/rental unit), full kitchen and laundry! Being sold As-Is, SO, bring your measuring tape and decorating ideas and imagine the possibilities!
