In the market for some new digs, but don't have a sky-high budget? Join the club — the Under 300K Club. This roomy 3BD, 2BA in Hyde Park hit the market for $360,000 in February, but a series of price chops have brought it down to $299,000, qualifying it for the club. We like this place for several reasons: the sun room with art glass windows, the updated kitchen with new appliances (including washer/dryer), the handsome wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves (a must in Hyde Park). And the location, at the corner of Blackstone and 56th, three blocks from both the U of C and the MS&I, isn't bad either.
