In a residential pocket right between Palmer Square Park and The 606 Trail, there are many beautiful Chicago homes: workers cottages, brick two-flats, and even a few residences with Queen Anne flair. Those looking for an affordable one bedroom might be particularly struck by this unit in a corner brick building.

At the corner of Dickens and Sawyer avenues, this recently renovated one-bedroom, one-bathroom is barely under $200K. The living, dining, and kitchen are all combined into one open space but there are bright yellow walls, a painted brick decorative fireplace, and enormous east-facing bay windows.

The small kitchen makes the most of a tight space with a redesign for optimal efficiency and storage. As far as tiny kitchens go, it has perks like dishwasher, a lovely window over the sink, and subway tiling.

Transit is abundant in this location—plenty of major bus routes, less than a mile from two Blue Line stops, and safe biking streets (along the boulevards and The 606).

Located at 2056 N. Sawyer Avenue Unit 1A, is listed for $199,000 with monthly assessments around $230.
