Alison Victoria, star of HGTV’s Kitchen Crashers home remodeling program, is looking to unload her Chicago home. Built in the “early 1900s,” the brick-clad Wicker Park property includes four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and—naturally—a completely remodeled kitchen.
In an an interview in HGTV Magazine, Victoria described the existing cooking space as a “mishmash of melamine cabinets, dated tile, and scratched-up butcher block” that had “zero personality.” Following a gut rehab, the bright kitchen now sports new cabinets, a custom island, lounging nook, built-in bookshelves, and wine rack.
Other upgrades to the single-family structure include a fully finished lower level and new shingle roof. As far as location is concerned, the home is convenient to the neighborhood’s top retail offerings. Situated directly across from Wicker Park, the lot is just around the corner from the Blue Line Damen stop and popular restaurants like Big Star tacos.
According to public records, Victoria and husband Luke Harding picked up the property at 1519 N. Wicker Park Avenue roughly five years ago for $315,000. With the renovated home currently seeking $1.5 million, the reality show star is hoping to make a major return on her initial investment.
