House of Week: Lincoln Park double-dip on Lill and Altgeld

This past week has been full of activity for us with new listings, several closings and, let's face it, a little fun. We missed last week's installment, so let's play two!

1036 W Lill is a storybook worthy cottage that doesn't give us the blues (despite it's hue). Bob passes the home daily on his walk to the office. We can't help but smell the baking cookies just looking at it! This home faces Jonquil Park and despite being squeezed by larger homes, this lady stands out with ornate window casing, pronounced eaves at the roof and the prettiest doorway on Lill.

This classic 1910 northern DePaul neighborhood gray-stone at 1245 W Altgeld is Chicago! The property last sold in 2002 as a two-flat for $837,500. It's been converted to a single family residence of high curb appeal. Gray-stones tend to get 10-20% higher asking prices than comparable brick or frame properties. The look and history of these homes are not lost on many!
