New single-family ready to "rock on Rockwell"

1752 N Rockwell St, ChicagoFirst off, my hat goes off to the folks at @propertiesMike Vesole Group. The 1700 block of North Rockwell Street is smack-dab in the middle of what Realtors call “West Bucktown,” but I haven’t seen or heard that term mentioned once in reference to this new single-family home. They aren’t going out of their way to scream “Logan Square,” of course, but I’ll take omission over flat-out fabrication any day.

I’m used to hearing about big open-house parties, but usually for condo projects, where there are multiple units available. In this case, Vesole is throwing a shindig tomorrow evening – “Rock on Rockwell” – for a single home at 1752 N Rockwell St. Yes, we are officially to the point where brokers are booking bands and caterers just to make one sale. (I don’t know a thing about Catatonic, but can you think of a more unfortunate – or appropriate – name for a band playing an open house in today’s market?)

To be fair, 1752 North Rockwell seems to stand out from most of the single-families and rentals on its block. As you can see from the picture above, it bears more resemblance to a Studio Dwell home than to its red-brick neighbors, which admittedly might make it more like a Bucktown residence. According to sales agent Brooke Epley, the 4,200 square-foot, four-bedroom / 3.5-bath home was designed by Buono Development, whose portfolio consists primarily of conversions in Logan Square, Humboldt Park, Irving Park and Heart of Chicago.

The home features Unico cabinets, DuPont Corian countertops, and Smeg and SubZero appliances in the kitchen, a dual glass shower and air-jet tub in the master bath, a glassed-in gym or office space, two decks, and a two-car garage, Epley says. It is priced at $1.29 million.

Below are four more pictures of 1752 North Rockwell’s interiors and roof deck.
