We last chattered about this 4-bedroom single family home at 6924 N. Tonty in the Wildwood neighborhood of Forest Glen in May 2012.
See our prior chatter here.
We had a lively discussion on whether this part of the city is really “the city”.
As far as the house goes, several of you had been in it over the two years it was listed and said it had a strong cigarette smell.
But after being reduced about $200,000 to $498,000, some of you thought it wasn’t too far off the correct price.
The house finally sold in July 2012 for $448,000.
If you recall, the house was built in 1940 and is on an oversized lot of 45×151.
For those of you not familiar with Wildwood, it is in the Northwest corner of the city and has winding streets without curbs. A metra stop is nearby for the commute downtown.
The house had hardwood floors on the main floor along with arched doorways and a woodburning fireplace in the living room.
All four bedrooms were on the second floor.
There was also a lower level recreation room and a main floor family room.
The house had central air and a 1-car garage.
The kitchen had white appliances and what looks like original cabinets.
Is the final sales price of this property surprising given that homebuyers mainly want “new” and move-in ready?
Kathleen Nettleton at Re/Max 1st had the listing. You can still see the interior pictures here.
