On a corner lot in Bucktown, this four-bedroom, two-bath duplex looks more like a monastery or an old school. But on the inside, the 2,000-square-foot space is a cozy home with hardwood floors, slanted dormer second-floor ceilings, and exposed-brick walls.

Bucktown, a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood West of Chicago's major artery, the Kennedy Expressway, has become synonomous with streets of eclectic homes. Some are in their original old, vintage state while a number of others -- especially during the housing boom -- were torn down and replaced with anything from a traditional brick townhouse to a contemporary, boxy row house.

But despite the architectural spectrum in Bucktown, this duplex, with a red-and-white facade and brick rear exterior, is one-of-a-kind. And at the same time, its future renter will get to share in learning all the neighborhood secrets of living in Bucktown. Did you say "pool?"
