Located in Edgewater’s Lakewood Balmoral Historic District, this cute Arts & Crafts style home is big on character thanks to a number of old-school touches. Highlights include a large front porch, a bright living room with original brick fireplace and window seat, hardwood floors, and a cozy dining room with rich wood wainscoting and beamed ceilings. An oak staircase leads to three upstairs bedrooms and the home’s only full bath.
Situated on a generous 30 by 125-foot lot, the property is just a short walk from the shopping and restaurants of Andersonville, the Bryn Mawr CTA Red Line station, and the beaches, parks, and jogging paths along the lakefront. This newly-listed charmer is currently seeking $725,000—a relative bargain compared to its numerous million dollar neighbors.
