Pre-fire vintage in Lincoln Park for $1.74M

2029 N Seminary AveIs this the oldest Chicago home currently on the market? It’s a Victorian single-family at 2029 N Seminary Ave that dates back to 1861, just 24 years after the city incorporated and a good 10 years before the Chicago Fire.

According to Jenny Ames‘ listing, this Lincoln Park / DePaul home has many original details intact, including antique mantles and leaded glass. The main level features a separate dining room, and a kitchen / family room that opens to a deck and landscaped yard. Three of the four bedrooms are located upstairs; the fourth is on the lower level and can work as either a guest room or a playroom. The home comes with a two-car detached garage. 2008 taxes were $13,210 with homeowner and senior exemptions.

Earlier this year, Joe Zekas took a BlockWalk around the 2000 block of North Seminary Avenue. You can see the home in the first half, embedded below. Watch the second half at YouTube.
