For $470K: California Bungalow w/ Cedar Roof, Stone Fireplace

New, 18 comments


In the Ravenswood Manor section of Albany Park you can't escape the bungalow. The icon of working class housing is always easy on the eyes, but few ascend to drop-dead gorgeousness. This fine example of the California Craftsman Bungalow is one. The picturesque 1913 two-bed begins with a gently-sloped cedar roof and a wooden enclosed porch. It's so slight a home that the front landscaping might well bury the facade in a few years' time. The 1,800-square-foot interiors are characterized by wood beam ceilings, a monumental stone fireplace, elegant windows and hanging lamps, colorful bathroom tile, and a handful of rooms that were seemingly left behind in terms of updates and renovations. Ah well, that's a fairly easy fix. The just-listed home is near to the Brown Line and the start of the North Shore Channel Trail. The ask: $470K.
