An Efficient and Expanded Lincoln Park Colonial

This 1876 home is a rarity in the Lincoln Park/Capitol Hill area: a completely detached house on a corner lot.

While the molding continues throughout, the rest of the main floor has a more contemporary open layout. The house has also been outfitted with solar panels and a drip irrigation system.
