Originally built in 1885, this remodeled single family home in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood includes a number of upgrades and photographs well thanks to particularly nice staging. The bright four-bedroom, three-and-half-bathroom structure features high ceilings, fresh fixtures, and a handsome dining room with white shiplap walls.
The finished lower level includes its own bedroom and remodeled bathroom and would work well as a guest space. The large front porch is complimented by a rear yard with bench seating under a pergola.
Despite Bronzeville being touted as Chicago’s “next hot neighborhood” for far too many years, the area really seems to be on the cusp of future greatness. Upcoming investments in the Near South Side include the Obama Presidential Center, McCormick Square, and the redevelopment of the former Harold Ickes Homes and Michael Reese Hospital sites.
The home is currently available for $467,500—down slightly from $475,000 earlier this fall. With a comparable home in Lincoln Park or Lakeview easily commanding twice as much, the property certainly offers a lot of house for the cash. According to public records, it last sold in 2010 for a cool $300,000.
