If you’ve got your heart set on a Chicago greystone keep an eye on the listings popping up in the Grand Boulevard area. Rehabbed greystones and brick two-flats commonly list for well under $400,000, making the area an economical choice for those who really desire a classic limestone-clad home. This four-bedroom, four-bathroom home on South Prairie Avenue is another example of the area’s housing stock.
While there are virtually no original architectural details found inside the home, it has been fully refreshed and is move-in ready. There’s 3,000 square feet of living space spread over four levels, so it’s really tough to beat this value. It’s getting tough to find a two-bedroom condo in many neighborhoods in the $350,000 to $400,000 range, but this entirely rehabbed single family home can be had for $399,900.
