Close to Grant Park and the Oakland Cemetery, this 1920 home contains many of the design details expected in Victorian architecture. Think stained glass windows, a narrow floor plan, a steep, multifaceted roof, a wrap-around porch, and a vibrant exterior color.

But that’s just the start. Inside, there’s also five fireplaces, original pine floors, a built-in china cabinet, and the original fireplace mantels from 1920.

As part of the original construction, there are some interesting lines and angles in the house, too, such as arched doorways, angled walls like the living room wall with the fireplace, and some awkward ceiling lines in the upstairs rooms.

Of course, there have been some updates, with the most recent taking place in 2012. As a result, the galley kitchen has a stainless steel dishwasher, range, sink and faucet.

The master bathroom also received some upgrades and now features a double vanity, marble countertops, a soaking tub, and a glass walk-in shower.

The fenced-in backyard contains a patio as well as a detached, one-car garage, although it’s not clear where the car access, if any, is for that building.

The listing proclaims this house has “so much space in an amazing location,” but with 2,083 square feet at $600,000, it actually seems on par for the surrounding community.

Given the demand for housing in Grant Park, though, this home could still sell pretty fast. Stay tuned.
