Description

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places and constructed in the 1890’s, timeless design and ornate detail grace this beautiful and rare brick Queen Anne 2-flat on perhaps the most appealing block of tree-lined Humboldt Boulevard. Part of the Logan Boulevard Historic District and situated on an oversized 32’x166′ lot, this home has been in the same family since 1971 and is ready to have new life breathed into its elegant, inviting quarters. A huge front porch greets you upon entry into the gated front yard. Throughout both floors you’ll savor original details from floor to coffered ceiling; oak trim, cove moldings, hardwood floors, imposing archways, ornate pocket doors, glass sconces that were once gas-fed, original carved wood mantels, stately backlit wood and glass built-in hutches complete with original hardware, various archaic morsels, and patterned mosaics that you’ll get lost in. Three beds/one bath on the first floor and four beds/one bath on the second (plus a bathroom in the high-ceilinged basement) mean plenty of space for everyone, whether you refresh as an investment (duplex it down for a lavish owner’s unit!) or convert to a magnificent single family home. Oversized wood-frame windows flood every room with bountiful light while accenting the original solid wood-panel doors and ornate switch covers. The first floor has seen a kitchen update with the addition of laundry hookups. Second floor kitchen is prepped for restoration; all of the original wooden cabinet faces are present and awaiting modernization. Atop the front porch is an equally-large east-facing deck overlooking Humboldt Boulevard that spans the width of the house, accessible through a magnificently arched doorway. Two enclosed back porches with newer windows look out upon a huge and sunny backyard ringed with mature peonies and hostas. The two car garage likely needs to be torn down, but can be replaced with an even larger structure and possibly even an ADU (check with your architect and zoning attorney). Property is boiler heated with a newer hot water heater per floor. Included with this home is a box of various antique knick knacks such as skeleton keys, plate covers, doorknobs, locksets, and other historic miscellanea. Perfectly located steps from Palmer Square Park and the vibrant Logan Square dining scene, you’re also conveniently near easy commuter options (Blue line, 90/94, Fullerton and Armitage buses) as well as shopping, schools, and more.
