A "distinctive" gut rehabbed 2/1 unit in one of Chicago's first co-op buildings, The Park Gables, has re-listed for $169,900 after asking $225K just 10 months ago. The Tudor-revival courtyard building pairs with another, The Park Castles, in forming the northern edge of the landmark Indian Boundary Park. Both complexes opened in the late 1920s shortly after the park's construction. The unit in question has 1,450 square feet, French doors, hardwood floors, mahogany cabinets, an office, and courtyard views. The complex draws considerable attention for its Moroccan-style indoor swimming pool with pillars, archways, tile, and rippling beamed ceilings kept in beautiful condition. Also of note: every unit gets a garden plot. The $700 monthly assessment includes heat and property tax.
