Showing homes on North Damen in Lincoln Square

Living on North Damen Avenue in Lincoln Square has pluses and minuses.  Sure there is a little more traffic and noise but you typically get a price discount and you can walk out to shops, restaurants and CTA transportation. All photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty
I spent last Saturday morning looking at a gut renovated frame home on North Damen Avenue near West Lawrence in Lincoln Square.  My clients are long-time Lincoln Square multi-unit owners  contemplating rehabbing their building or just buying something else. The bustling street location is not a deterrent for them and they loved the idea of being so close to the CTA Brown Line at Damen for them and their kids.

Traditional (and some grand) frame construction single family homes are mixed in with commercial and multi-unit buildings along Damen Avenue in Lincoln Square.
Only four single family homes sold along Damen Avenue in the Lincoln Square neighborhood over the past 12 months.  Two over-sized (wide) properties sold for development at $436,000 and $470,000.  A newer construction (2007) single family home on a  25' x 173' for $1,030,000.  A really cool gut conversion of brick commercial building sold for 4542 N Damen sold for $1,973,010. The $10.00 bucks probably bought a cabinet pull!

The Perfect Cup has been a treasured neighborhood institution for many years. Coffee shop + train stop = city living! 

Turin Bicycle Chicago is one of many independent shops that line the Damen commercial district near the CTA Brown Line station.
Currently there are two properties for sale. The gut renovated house at 4740 N Damen priced at $799,900 and "tear down" property at 4610 N Damen offered at $850,000.  That property on a 40' wide by 125' long lot has been listed for 1634 consecutive days on
