Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park is located on Chicago's North side. It is bordered on the north by Diversey Parkway, on the west by the Chicago River, on the south by North Avenue, and on the east by Lake Michigan.

Lincoln Park is home to Lincoln Park High School, Francis W. Parker School, and DePaul University. Many students who attend these schools now live in this neighborhood. Lincoln Park is also home to five architecturally significant churches: St. Vincent de Paul Parish, St. Clement Church, St. Josaphat's (one of the many so-called 'Polish Cathedrals' in Chicago), St. James Lutheran Church and St. Michael's Church in the Old Town Triangle area of Lincoln Park. Visible from throughout the neighborhood, these monumental edifices tower over the neighborhood, lending the area much of its charm. Five Lincoln Park churches are affiliated with the Catholic Church (St. Bonaventure Church, Saint Clement Church, St. Michael in Old Town, St. Teresa de Avila Catholic Parish, St. Vincent de Paul Parish). The neighborhood also houses Children's Memorial Hospital (recently moved to Streeterville and was renamed Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago) and the currently closed Lincoln Park Hospital (formerly known as Grant Hospital and before that German-American Hospital), which is slated for redevelopment to condominiums, apartments, medical offices, and retail to be renamed Webster Square.

The neighborhood contains a large number of upscale national retailers, boutiques, bookstores, restaurants and coffee shops. An Apple Store opened in October 2010, as well as a Lacoste store across the street. There are also many bars and clubs in the area.

A. Finkl & Sons Steel operated on the west side of Lincoln park along an approximately 22-acre lot by the Chicago River for 113 years. The site is now vacant.

Lincoln Park is one of the wealthiest and most expensive communities in which to live. While the average single-family house is priced around $1 million, many homes in the area sell for more than $10 million. In 2007, Forbes magazine named the area between Armitage Avenue, Willow Street, Burling Street, and Orchard Street as the most expensive block in Chicago.

Lincoln Park, for which the neighborhood was named, now stretches miles past the neighborhood of Lincoln Park. The park lies along the lakefront from Ohio Street Beach in the Streeterville neighborhood, northward to Ardmore Avenue in Edgewater. The section of the park adjacent to the Lincoln Park neighborhood contains the Lincoln Park Zoo, Lincoln Park Conservatory, an outdoor theatre, a rowing canal, the Chicago History Museum, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, the North Pond Nature Sanctuary, North Avenue Beach, playing fields, a very prominent statue of General Ulysses S. Grant, as well as a famous statue of Abraham Lincoln (and many other statues).

Rustic romance abounds in this utterly magical modern farmhouse at 5 Lake Adalyn! This spectacular, sprawling home-the original farmhouse and iconic "first home" in the highly desirable "The Glen of South Barrington" enclave -is like stepping into a storybook, and now with 4+ bedrooms, 3.1 baths, it's ready for new owners to write the next chapter in its epic saga. Some of the home's vintage charm remains intact, including its cellar that marks the footprint of the original structure (perfect for wine storage!), however, additions and improvements through the years have transformed it for effortless modern living. Situated on a secluded, rambling lot surrounded by mature trees and immaculately landscaped grounds, a sweet garden arch welcomes you up the charming brick paver front walkway and into the home's expansive main level. Off one side of the foyer is the formal living room with brick fireplace, wood beam ceiling, and built-in bookcases, and on the other side, the huge formal dining room and great room beckon, with a grand farmhouse staircase in between the rooms lending an undeniable rustic charm. Atrium doors from the dining room open to the front porch, ideal for indoor/outdoor entertaining, and in the "hunt room," or great room, the stone fireplace, wood beam ceilings, and numerous windows invite the outdoors in the coziest way imaginable! An atrium door from the great room leads to the massive, newly refinished backyard deck, the most perfect setting to bask in the vibrant natural surroundings while dining al fresco. Back inside, the expansive chef's kitchen is steeped in the rich wood details found throughout the home but with modern amenities at every turn, from a Wolf range, Best range hood Sub Zero refrigerator, Wolf double oven, and seemingly endless cabinet storage, to the heated floors, reverse osmosis system, and massive center island with wraparound breakfast bar seating. Elsewhere on the main level is a large half bath, office with half vaulted wood beamed ceiling, skylights, custom-built desk and fireplace, and simply breathtaking three-seasons sunroom with vaulted roof and floor-to-ceiling windows offering picturesque lake views. On the second floor, the original primary bedroom, which features an ensuite bathroom and atrium doors that open to a balcony overlooking the front lawn, has been expanded to include a second, even larger suite-a private oasis with soaring vaulted ceilings, fireplace, and ensuite with double vanities, his-and-hers custom closets, deep soaking tub, and separate shower. Two more large bedrooms (one outfitted with a California closet), a third full bath, and a dedicated laundry room are just around the corner, AND, there's a hidden room off the tandem bedroom ideal for a hobby room or storage, plus another bonus space above the three-car garage (with electric charging station and new epoxy floor). This area has two extra rooms with zoned heating, making it easily used as guest rooms, flex workspace, home theater, gaming suite, music studio, and playroom - the possibilities are endless. Hop in your electric golf cart (included with the home) to zip around this fabled neighborhood's private beach and lakes. Please see Feature Sheet for list of special features, updates and upgrades.
