We chattered about this 2-bedroom at 431 W. Oakdale in East Lakeview in June 2011.
See our prior chatter here.
At that time, it was listed $155,000 under the 2009 purchase price. Some of you wondered how the seller could have paid that price after Lehman Brothers. Others thought that the list price of $299,000 would produce a quick sale.
It has since been reduced further to $259,900.
If you recall, the unit has many of the vintage features found in buildings constructed in 1929 near the lakefront including a barreled gallery, crown and picture molding and a full size dining room.
The kitchen has Subzero and other stainless steel appliances and a butler’s pantry.
However, there is no central air, washer/dryer in the unit or deeded parking.
Strangely enough, the bedroom picture from the “little piece of Paris” property at 3043 N. Lake Shore drive made it into this listing (who can forget that writing desk!- see those pictures again here.)
The price of this property has fallen almost $200,000 in just 2 years.
How low will this go?
Kay Mastandrea at Coldwell Banker still has the listing. See the pictures here.
