Lincoln Park Houses

Lincoln Park HomesLincoln Park is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Chicago. Its wide selection of upscale properties and charming rowhouses has made it especially popular for people who want it all. Many of Lincoln Park’s homes are very distinct, bearing traces of Chicago’s unique historic heritage.

Residents of this North Chicago neighborhood have easy access to public transportation. Its proximity to downtown Chicago makes it a popular choice for many real estate buyers despite the fact that prices for Lincoln Park homes for sale are higher than those in other neighborhoods. The wide variety of options for day and night activities in this neighborhood make Lincoln Park homes for sale more appealing to buyers.

Lincoln Park has some interesting history including its former use as a swamp and a cemetery in the 1800’s. The great fire that ravaged Chicago including some parts of Lincoln Park have led to the influx of many German immigrants who have built large mansions. Some of these homes still stand even to this day.

The Lincoln Park houses that were built in the early part of the 1900’s are a vivid reminder of Chicago’s vibrant history. Several single-family homes that were originally built as narrow multi-story apartment buildings have already been converted into multi-unit dwellings. The cottage-style A-frame house was, and still is, a popular housing type in Lincoln Park. The large entryways reminiscent of the days when the American concept of community was still very strong uniquely combine history with elegance. Today, these elaborate entryways still grace many Lincoln Park homes for sale.

While Lincoln Park is known for its stately mansions and expensive brownstones, several affordable rowhomes have been built in the past decades. Many of these mansions and rowhomes are found in Lincoln Park’s quiet sections. The stretch of Fullerton Avenue between Halsted and Clark street illustrates how beautiful these houses are.

Prices for detached single-family homes in Lincoln Park range from $500,000 up to about $15,000,000.
