In Wicker Park, this charming workers cottage just listed—and we don’t expect it’ll be for sale much longer.
“Anything in the lower 700s in this neighborhood gets scooped up quickly,” said Jameson Sotheby’s Intl Realty listing agent Maria Casciaro. So why is this home so hot? The wider lot, less-than-a-million-dollar price tag, and original workers cottage style are a rare, coveted combo in this neighborhood, according to Casciaro.
The stylishly rehabbed three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home comes with large windows, a porcelain farmhouse sink, and built-in bookcases. The main level has an open layout with designated spaces for a formal living room, dining room, and kitchen with a breakfast bar. The basement has a cozy family room plus a guest bedroom and bathroom. The other two bedrooms are on the top floor with great closet space and a subway-tiled master bathroom.
The main attraction: A lucious, brick-paved backyard. Off the back of the house, two wooden decks overlook a ivy-covered privacy wall, a seating area with brick pavers, a vegetable garden, hydrangeas, and other verdant landscaping.
