House of the Week. Lincoln Square corner cutie with underground garage

I always stop and admire this single family home at 2178 W Leland. It looks right back at the steady stream of walkers heading to the shops of Lincoln Square. It sits uniquely on the lot; close to the sidewalk, yet it has attractive front and side yard landscaping. The composition of renovations, from color, brick, fencing and landscaping keep the eye moving.

At some point, an underground garage with side drive was added. Cool. A coach house- like multi-unit property with a separate address sits just to the rear. I have not investigated to see if it's still all under one owner or long ago sold separately.

It's all about the details!

The house was built in 1993, with the garage.

Thanks! I walk by all the time and assumed renovation. Do you know if the building to the rear of the house was part of the original lot?

It's a pretty unique set up. Looks like the two were split and sold separately.

This house was for sale in the mid-90s for about $490k, which was a great price with the coach house. It was on the market again around 2004 above the 1MM mark... I guess that's the housing bubble at work!
