Lincoln Park Rowhouse with Reversed Master Suite Sells in Five Days

It’s all about the details in this traditional rowhouse a few blocks from Lincoln Park. A hinged transom at the front door enables fresh air circulation, while an iron fireplace with exposed chute holds court in the corner of the living room. The main floor boasts extra-wide wood-framed entryways and original hardwood floors. The kitchen has frosted cabinetry, a waterfall countertop and French doors that lead to an enclosed rear deck. The master suite, however, may be the biggest surprise, with its reverse arrangement leading with the skylit bathroom before you reach the sunroom-style sleeping area.

As-Is Atrium Rowhouse Finds Buyer in Three Days

Despite being sandwiched between two similar Federal rowhouses, this pre-Civil War enjoys extra natural light courtesy of a narrow, three-story skylit atrium that extends from behind the family room to run the length of the house. Much of the house opens onto this space, from the high-ceilinged open living/dining room to the large bedrooms upstairs, some of which contain sets of railed French doors that open over the breezeway. The chef’s kitchen with breakfast bar sits on a lower level beneath the dining room. Featured on UrbanTurf last Friday, the home was under contract by Monday.

A 672 Square-Foot Hidden Alleyway Rowhouse

Located on a hidden alley, this two-bedroom Federal rowhouse on Gessford Court manages to make less than 700 square feet make sense. On the open main floor, a wood-burning fireplace creates a bump-out, flanked with large nooks that offer plenty of space for seating and eating areas. Extra storage space comes courtesy of a nook at the ceiling above the entrance to the master bedroom and an attic accessible by pull-down ladder. The house is also full of oversized windows that bring light into the interior. It went under contract within just a week of being listed.

  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Feet: 672
