Bucktown PoMo Berserker Finds a Fan at $670K

New, 13 comments

You were warned of this incredibly loud PoMo home's presence on the market last summer. Not that it was a new arrival— the listing came and went from early 2008 to late 2009 before taking some considerable time off. Eighty thousand dollars came off the price between July and last week's close, for $670K. That tells us the unruly and out-of-place design was an impediment to the home's market value. After all, the single-fam has four beds, three-and-a-half baths, and 3,600-sqaure-feet— what would be considered on the larger side in worker's cottage country. Inconceivably, the listing agent concludes this place is "not in your face modern." Just well lit and "contemporary". Right. But, hey, it did sell, proving there are personalities just as wondrously wacky as this architecture.
