Last Friday Prudential Rubloff agent Lindsey Stewart listed her 6,300 square-foot home at 1875 N Fremont St in Lincoln Park at $2.2 million. The building dates back to 1870, the year before the Great Chicago Fire, and served as a five-flat until Stewart converted it into a single-family home. (When she bought the building back in 1992, it cost just $474,000.)
The “richly detailed” four-bedroom / 4.5-bath home has a main floor with “high ceilings, wide hallways, spacious rooms that flow naturally from one to the next, and an enormous gourmet kitchen that opens to a landscaped garden,” according to Stewart’s listing. It also has an “unobtrusive” two-bedroom apartment with a private entrance.
2009 taxes were $20,127 with a homeowner exemption. The home is inside the boundaries for Oscar Mayer Elementary School and Lincoln Park High School. Its address gets a Walk Score of 91 (a “walker’s paradise”) and an “excellent” Transit Score of 80.
