Located in Cicero, Illinois just feet outside the city limits (and rising property taxes) of Chicago proper, this cheerful little bungalow dating back to 1904 was quick to find a potential buyer. Featuring three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a back yard with a detached two-car garage, the modest home was the recent recipient of extensive renovations.
Though the jewelry-like light fixtures and flashy tile-work in the kitchen and bathrooms are a bit on the tacky side, the rest of old home has benefitted from new plumbing, wiring, flooring, windows, roof, furnace, and a fresh coat of paint. While Cicero is certainly no Kenilworth, the initial $178,900 asking price represents decent value and is nice too see as tear-downs become increasingly common.
