Evidence that the grit and hustle of Nelson Algren’s Chicago have long since vanished from Bucktown: this luxurious five-bedroom 4.1-bath single-family home at 1713 N Wood St. To say the 5,600 square foot home is wide-bodied isn’t an exaggeration, as it sits on a 33.5 by 125 foot lot (the standard width of a Chicago lot is 25 feet).
Inside the house, there’s plenty of room to stretch out. The secondary bedrooms are all at least 14 by 13 feet, while the master bedroom is 18 by 15 feet – big enough to run laps. You could run sprints in the office (20 by 13 feet), or, if that gets tiring, switch to the rec room (33 by 16 feet). After that try tossing a frisbee around the family room (26 by 20 feet)
For a breath of fresh air, step out onto the balcony or the roof deck.
