While its hard not to fall in love with an ivy-covered workers cottage on a shady tree-lined street, this particular Wicker Park example has the added charm and quirkiness of a lofted second level. The light-filled living space even features wrap-around bookshelves accessible via an elevated metal catwalk.
The open plan upstairs, gives off a cabin-like vibe thanks to wood-paneled bedrooms and bathrooms and peaked roofline. The property also sports a large yard with plenty of room to build a garage if so desired.
Located just around the corner from the dining, shopping, and public transit lining Division street, the Wicker Park cottage listed less than a month ago for $749,000. Since then, it took a price reduction down to $699,900 before finally arriving at $675,000 yesterday. The fast-pace of the price changes suggest the owner could be especially motivated to sell.
