Old Town super secret real estate! Living along the CTA Brown Line with perks

A quirky and cool property spans about five city lots and offers a garden sanctuary complete with  a retro outdoor bar!
I was in Old Town yesterday meeting contractors on a current property transaction.  Although I've been on the 1500 block of North Cleveland dozens of times I had never fully noticed this large piece of residential property was connected... straddling the CTA Brown Line tracks.  It's not so secret but it's easy to miss the fantastic triple lot courtyard resting under the elevated tracks complete with a bar!

A covered retro bar is located off the garage of one of the residential buildings on the property.

Two frame properties and a coach house constitute an urban compound in a fantastic location just off North and Wells.  The property owner may have shunned development offers through the years.  I'm not certain if either of the buildings is a single family home or if they are both multi-units.  Either way, this is old school Chicago living.
