Sometimes it's just good to see a front door with soul. This Victorian cottage in Grant Park has soul in spades — and with four bedrooms for less than $350,000, it joins a shriveling stock of roomy intown homes priced below the budgets of surgeons. Built in 1920, the 2,281 square-foot property has been renovated over the last few years, with unique features like butcher-block kitchen counters. Plenty of the historical charm remains, though, including two stellar fireplace mantels (and a Peter Pan one to match!) The sprawling backyard is fenced — all the better for raising the flock of children that could comfortably fit here.
