In Ravenswood, a colorful duplex-up unit in a late 1960s building is on the market for under $400,000.

The three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom condo features a charming light brick exterior with decorative breeze blocks, a bright red front door, and leafy vines around the entrance. Inside, the main level has a living room, dining room, kitchen, and private deck. Upstairs there’s a master suite and two smaller bedrooms.

The benefit of a duplex-up unit is that the owners typically have access to the roof, and in this case, the outdoor deck off the kitchen. Duplex-down units are usually on the first floor and could be smaller.

The home has trendy new updates like the vibrant pineapple dining room wallpaper and emerald ogee drop-shaped kitchen backsplash. There are hardwood floors throughout, tons of light, and lots of storage as the entire basement is dedicated to this unit.

A common courtyard is shared by residents of the building and parking can be leased, but street parking isn’t hard to find. Both the Metra and a CTA Brown Line station are a short distance away.

1826 West Winnemac Avenue, Unit 2 is listed for $350,000 with assessments around $460 per month.

There are white cabinets, an island with a white countertop, and a stainless steel range.
An emerald kitchen features a wavy tile backsplash.
A wooden dining room table sits on a hardwood floor next to a bar cart with bottles near the entrance of the home.
Bright pineapple wallpaper with tiny florals livens up the dining room.
A bed with matching night stands and lamps sits on a grey rug next to a window overlooking trees.
The master bedroom is on the top floor of the duplex.
A small bathroom with a round mirror, gold soap dispenser, blue and coral shower curtain, and white tiles.
The bathroom features white subway tile and decorative black and white filigree floor tiles.
A wooden deck with wood railings on the side of the duplex. There are small trees and shrubs with brick houses in the distance.
Off the dining room, there’s a long wooden deck overlooking a grassy, green area.
