A far cry from the opulent suburban mansions and downtown penthouses that have lately been grabbing a lot of attention, this quint but charming single family home in Old Irving Parking is seeking $349,000. Built in 1903 and situated on an oversized lot, the three-bedroom, two-bath house has plenty of original trim and detailing and would make a solid starter home for a young couple or small family.
According to the listing, two of the home’s bedrooms are located on the main level (though one is currently staged as a dining room) while a master bedroom and home office are perched on the top floor. While headroom might look a little thight upstairs, buyers can stretch out in the property’s large rear yard and deck.
Meanwhile the home’s kitchen has fresh quartz counters, stainless steel appliances, cabinetry and flooring. The unfinished lower level features plenty of storage and would make a relatively straightforward future project for any buyer with the DIY spirit.
Convenient to both the Metra and the CTA’s Blue Line, Old Irving Park is a neighborhood likely on the cusp of a real estate boom as demand and prices surge northwestward from already red hot ‘hoods like Wicker Park and Logan Square.
