In Boystown, Aldine Street features coveted older condo buildings and charming brick courtyard buildings. The tree-lined street is steps away from Broadway and the lakefront, putting this top floor condo in an ideal location.
Built in 1920, the red brick three-flat features delightful views of the neighborhood, exposed brick, a gorgeous fireplace with built-in bookshelves, picture molding, and a newer kitchen. The unit also has an open air deck just off the eat-in area which is great for warmer months. When the air gets a little chilly, there’s an all-season, enclosed sunroom.
Unlike most three-flat buildings this unit feels indulgently wide—many older buildings have a narrow shotgun layout due to the standard Chicago lot size. Plus, it has a long entryway and separate dining room. While there are modern upgrades like central air and in-unit laundry, the home retains its charm with heavy wood doors, classic trims, and stained glass windows.
516 West Aldine Avenue, Unit 3 is listed for $619,000 with Brad Lippitz of Compass.
