Resurfacing on the market last week for the first time in 22 years, this 3/2 Roscoe Village cottage has really old bones, but enough window dressing to imagine you're dwelling in a new-build. So, what's the main attraction? Besides being in a great location near shops, restaurants, and transit, the modest 1,280-square-foot home is pushed to the back of its lot for maximum privacy. The robustly landscaped front yard is fenced-in for the same feel as a back yard. A pair of tall pine trees at the front property line add some extra buffering. The house itself has hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, a porch, deck, garage, and unfinished basement suitable for expansion. The ask? $529,900. Commence bidding.
