A renovated greystone in Logan Square for $740K

New, 7 comments

In 1985, the building sold for just $90,000.

This two-story greystone was at one point a two-unit residence. Now, the home is being marketed to buyers interested in Airbnb potential.

Logan Square has become a popular area for homebuyers and luxury developers. The average home sale price has increased by 9 percent just in the last year, according to real estate listing website Redfin. Just looking at this particular home, it sold in for $90,000 in 1985. Most recently, it sold for $601,000 in 2014 and now it’s listed for $739,000.

The property features two units with a traditional Chicago layout: a living room in the front, a dining room and kitchen in the middle and bedrooms along the sides and back of the space. Each unit is well maintained with original fireplaces, built-in shelves, crown molding, and arches.

In the top floor unit, the owner’s unit, there are a few quirky accents. The backsplash in the kitchen is aluminum diamond-plate patterned wall panels. In the bathroom, there’s bright blue penny tiles. And, and industrial, bolted metal sink and a countertop.

Each unit also has a wooden back deck patio, the front yard is professionally landscaped, and there’s a stone firepit in the backyard.

2630 North Troy Street is listed with Anne Rossley of Baird & Warner.
