Bucktown may be the land of teardowns, but this old cottage on Moffat Street has been preserved and totally updated. While it may look pint-sized from the outside, this four bedroom, three bathroom home has a finished basement and just enough deck and backyard space for entertaining. It's a few block from the Western Blue Line, but only about a block and a half away from The 606 elevated trail that is opening this weekend. It can be pretty disappointing sometimes when you see an old home that has been gutted and renovated using cheap, tacky finishes but this home certainly does not disappoint. It's currently seeking $750,000.
