Choice cuts: 29% off a Lincoln Park storefront home

1147 W Webster Ave, Chicago

Follow that little red Carrera above down the 1100 block of West Webster Ave and you’ll pass the storefronts of the Cotelac, McShane’s Exchange, Left Bank Jewelry, and Aberle boutiques, State Street Barbers and the Strand hair salon, and restaurants like Kith and Kin and The Local Option. You’ll see another storefront, the one at 1147 W Webster Ave, that serves a different purpose — it’s the entrance to a building zoned for mixed-use and currently used as a single-family home.

The 5,200 square-foot four-bedroom / four-bath sold in June 2007 for $1.35 million. In February 2010 it hit the MLS, priced at more than $1.65 million, and has worked its way down the market ever since. On Wednesday it dropped to $1.2 million, and is now flagged as a short sale.

Doris Hamilton’s listing touches on the home’s open floor plan, “vibrant rooms…flooded with natural light from numerous windows and skylights,” its dark-stained oak floors, five fireplaces, exposed brick walls, a terrace and a deck, and an attached garage with room for two cars or one plus an elevator.
