A brick two-flat built in 1920 in North Center right between the two expansive parks and the river is on the market. If all that greenery isn’t enough, this home has a grassy backyard with a pergola, too.

The home was converted into a four-bedroom, three-bathroom flat and comes with a new kitchen, open layout, rehabbed bathrooms, and a two-car garage. Some of the original woodwork remains which is visible in the flooring and beams.

The master bedroom has a plant-filled sunroom with sliding glass doors and a walk-in closet separated with a rustic barn door. Plus, radiant heated floors were installed on the first floor and in the master bathroom.

The house sits on a on quiet street just one block from the North Branch and Horner Park which has tennis courts, native plant gardens, a dog-friendly area, and a ceramics studio in the field house. A few blocks northeast is Welles Park with an indoor pool, playground, volleyball court, and horseshoe pits.
