On the top floor of a handsome 1920s-era brick building in Uptown’s Margate Park community, you’ll find this two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo with an appealing mix of vintage charm and midcentury modern-inspired style.

The relatively roomy 1,800-square-foot space includes original hardwood floors, door casings, crown moldings, and built-in storage in the living and dining rooms. There’s a bright sunroom just off the living room as well as a separate sitting area/home office space with a wood-burning stove at the rear of the home’s narrow, but still acceptable kitchen. And both bathrooms were recently updated.

The property is a short walk from the lakefront and the Argyle CTA stop, and Buttercup Park and Playlot is right next door. It’s asking $379,900 (plus $384 in monthly HOA fees), and a single deeded garage parking space is included in the price.
