A condo in an older eye-catching brick building has just listed in North Center.

It’s a neighborhood that borders the northern branch of the Chicago River so residents enjoy plenty of nature trails and birding. The homes range from brick courtyard buildings, riverfront homes with docks, and a few pristine Victorians.

Located a few blocks from the Brown Line and Horner Park, this older condo building sits on a tree-lined street with other small apartments. The exterior is notable with two columns framing the doorway and six decorative raw stone panels.

The two bedroom, one bathroom home comes with a cozy gas fireplace, lots of natural light, and an open kitchen with an island and breakfast bar. While the space is a modest 975 square feet, it does have a large outdoor patio that overlooks the side yard of the building. It’s currently outfitted with tons of outdoor seating, a crochet hammock, tons of potted plants, a grill, and a mini fridge.

Curious about 1757 W. Belle Plaine Avenue Unit 2W? It’s listed for $285,000. HOA fees are about $150 per month.
