A far cry—and about 14 miles—from the noisy steel canyons of the Loop, this nicely updated midcentury bungalow in the Mt. Greenwood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side is the perfect spot to settle down for not a lot of scratch. Built in 1949, the charming four-bedroom house playfully embraces its retro pedigree yet offers a refreshed kitchen with stainless appliances plus new hardwood floors, doors, lighting, ceiling fans, window treatments, and roof
The property also features a fully finished lower level with a family room and a second kitchen space. A nicely landscaped one-and-a-half-lot yard adds to its family-friendly appeal. The colorful South Side starter home can be had for just $339,900.
