Granted, it’s on the small side, and it’s a good trek from the lake, but this three-bedroom 2.5-bath single-family home at 2737 N Bosworth Ave probably sounds like a steal to upwardly-mobile Lincoln Park dwellers looking for the perfect “starter.”
Built in 1988, the home features recent updates to the kitchen like stainless steel appliances, granite counters and cherry cabinets. It also has a wood-burning fireplace.
The home also has some kid-friendly features like a back yard and downstairs rec room. Parents can find some solace in the office and wine cellar in the basement.
Although the southern and western exposure might help keep the place warm during the winter, keeping it cool under the blazing summer sun could be a different story. Still, if you can afford the $13,427 tax bill along with the private schools you’ll have to send your growing children to, what’s a couple of bucks more to crank the AC during the summer, when the Arctic Ice Caps melt most?
