New house construction is the norm in popular Lincoln Square near Winnemac Park.  The old frame house on a 25' x 132' at 2242 West Carmen was sold recently for $385,000. 

The weathered home did not stand a chance at the $399K list price and was swept up quickly for development. The 132' lot is longer than standard allowing a bigger house while maintaining room for a small yard and deck.
The block has seen two brick bungalow tear downs in the last two years. 2236 West Carmen was mostly demolished (to the foundation). The new house was sold for $935,000 in 2014.  A new construction house (formerly a brick bungalow 90% torn down as well) is under contract at 2224 West Carmen with a $999,900 asking price.  A renovated bungalow with extended dormer recently sold for $735,000 on the block as well.

The pretty 2200 Block of West Carmen leads into Winnemac Park and is popular for new and re-sale single family home buyers.
Read past posts HERE and HERE about new construction on this block of Carmen. The median price of a single family home in the immediate area around Winnemac Park is about $715,000.
