On the western edge of Andersonville along the Metra tracks, this pre-Fire cottage isn't much to look at, and its original details have largely been blotted out by less illustrious eras of interior design (case in point: the goofy bathroom and jacuzzi). But this is a hell of a property for $392K in Andersonville. Its 1862 vintage alone makes it pretty special, but the 3/2 main house is joined by an exquisite little 2-story coach with kitchen, one-and-a-half baths, and large bedroom. The main house rocks a huge master suite with a "sitting area" and office, and a more-than-respectable kitchen. In between, there's a deck and yard. On the market for the first time in 14 years, who'll lay claim to one of the oldest abodes in the area?
