On January 6, a brand-new build at 2053 N. Fremont Street in Lincoln Park will hit the market, and—if builder Andrew Bowyer’s record stands—it won’t be available for long. Even in the recession, all of Bowyer’s previous homes have sold in 30 days or less.
Upon entering the new home, the first thing that stands out is the amount of natural light. With 16 feet between the house and its neighbor—that’s about 14 feet more than the average—sunlight abundantly streams in. A dining room, kitchen, and family room are situated around the home’s centerpiece: the grand hardwood staircase, which winds beautifully up three stories. The middle level houses three bedrooms and a master suite, complete with fireplace, built-ins, and a luxe freestanding bathtub.
Ascend one more level and you’ve reached the penthouse, a few rooms of bonus space with a wet bar and bathroom. Dual laundry rooms make the 5,600 square-foot-home practical, and two outdoor decks render it perfect for hosting parties come summer. The chic yet comfortable space is ideal for a family, which is exactly what Bowyer had in mind while designing.
