It's that time of the week again, and we're more than happy to reward your patience with this blockbuster deal in Logan Square. While belonging to the more distant reaches of the neighborhood, it's hard to scoff at a 3-bed 1881 cottage on an 180' lot for an even $200K. The most marketable aspect—and the realtor knows it—is the tremendously deep backyard, already landscaped and adorned with large gardens. At the yard's helm is a two-level deck w/ pergola. And, for good measure, there's a front yard too. The interiors are basic but well-kept with some loud color-coding of rooms. Unusual to this price bracket is the finished basement containing the third bedroom. Newly listed at its 2003 sale price, this home makes a strong case for someone's rookie roost.
