Family-Friendly Rehab in Albany Park Seeks $649K

This classic five-bedroom home offers a large yard and plenty of upgrades

Albany Park is quickly developing a reputation for its diverse population, thriving small businesses, and extensive stock of classic Chicago-style bungalows, cottages, and frame homes. This recently-listed example built in 1915 is no exception. The 100-year-old structure does an excellent job of hiding its age thanks to an extensive 2012 gut rehab that resulted in a bright new kitchen, upgraded bathrooms, refreshed hardwood floors, and an enlarged front porch.

With no less than five bedrooms, four full baths, and a large lower level, the home lends itself well to a growing family or someone seeking space for a home office — or both. Out back there’s plenty of room for activities on the large yard and new patio afforded by the lot’s generous 37-foot width. A detached two car garage is also included. Though the home last sold in mid 2012 for $444,000, the current asking price of $649,900 is both a reflection of renovations done right as well as the growing desirability of this north side neighborhood.
