This 4-bedroom Victorian at 1726 N. Richmond in West Town just came on the market after a total rehab.
If you’re wondering about the location, so did I.
The listing has it as West Town but in the actual description it says it is a “gorgeous Logan Square gut rehab.”
You can’t be both West Town and Logan Square as those are two separate designations. The other properties on the street also have been or are designated as West Town. But if you cross north of Bloomingdale, the next street north of this house, it switches to Logan Square.
You’re also just 2 blocks north of Humboldt Park. If you go two blocks directly west, crossing over Humboldt Boulevard, you’re then in the Humboldt Park designation.
So let’s just say this house is on the edge of three districts: Humboldt Park, Logan Square and West Town- but it appears West Town is its official designation.
It’s similar to the other rehabs we’ve seen going on all over the city but this one went from a 2-flat to a single family home.
The house had previously been bank owned and was sold in June 2012.
According to the listing, everything is “new.”
You can see the pictures from the previous listing- when it was bank owned here.
Built on a standard 25×125, it has a 2 car garage and central air.
The house now has dark hardwood floors, crown molding and wainscotting.
The kitchen has white modern cabinets (IKEA or European in style) with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances and a mosaic tile backsplash.
There is a finished basement with a lower level family room and one of the 4 bedrooms is also in the lower level.
While buyers love “new”, can this neighborhood support an almost $400,000 price tag?
Tina Culver at Sergio & Banks has the listing. See the pictures here.
