House of the Week: A Lincoln Park single family home fit for a Roman

1964 N Burling sits on one of the most desired blocks in Lincoln Park . The single family renovation has much to look at on first glance and more going on for it's premier location. Land value on the block for a standard lot here can be over $1,000,000. A 2007 new construction seven bedroom home at 1905 N Burling on a 25x130 lot just sold for $3,950,000.

We love the colors and nod to classical architecture in flat representations of columns that are carved in relief on the facade. Thick decorative gables and cornice cap the grey stone structure painted a terrific black...and those doors!

The last sale recorded in the MLS of the home was in 1994 for $819,000 when it sat on a double lot. Great investment! In the last few years it looks like the lot was split and sold for a development on Burling and Armitage.
