Million Dollar Luxury Home: Lincoln Park, Chicago

This Lincoln Park private oasis is surrounded by exposed brick, a secret urban garden, and an entire ground level of outdoor living space, offers the best of both worlds for city dwellers who love the outdoors.

This month, ESTATENVY is taking a closer look at some million-dollar listings on the market in Chicagoland. 1970 N. Burling Street is worth every penny for its asking price of $8,950,000. This magnificent property is listed and being shown by @properties.

The 1970 N. Burling Street oasis is located in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. The gorgeous, brick single-family home consists of 5 bedrooms and 6.5 baths, equipped with a three car garage. The home was built by Leiderbach and Graham and offers a unique feel – exposed brick with industrial metal throughout. The exterior of the home resembles a high-end cottage seen only in the English countryside. The walled “secret” urban garden allows access to an entire outdoor patio living space on the first floor, with ample space for grilling and entertaining family and friends with outdoor seating and dining.

The interior offers a contemporary feel throughout with exposed brick on all three levels with reclaimed ceiling beams, and beautifully finished oak hardwood floors. This enclave also offers a unique guest suite coach house over the attached garage perfect for a live-in nanny or unexpected company.

The open floor plan makes it accessible for family members of all ages thanks to the customizable elevator. The kitchen is open and spacious and is stocked with top of the line amenities. The high ceilings and abundance of windows throughout the first floor gives a light and airy feel throughout the kitchen, dining room and living room spaces. 1970 N. Burlington is equipped with a finished basement, central cooling and heating systems and a quaint fireplace.

For health and wellness minded individuals you’re in luck, the property contains a sauna/steam room, hot tub and spacious exercise room (11x22 square feet).

When purchasing this property, a prospective buyer truly gets the best of both worlds - the opportunity to live in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood just outside of the city, while also enjoying a spacious single-family home just steps away from Mayer Elementary School and Lincoln Park High School.
