Forget The New Construction: Buy A Sophisticated 3-Bedroom Vintage Duplex Down: 839 W. Wellington In Lakeview
This 3-bedroom duplex down at 839 W. Wellington in Lakeview came on the market in July 2012.
We have chattered about this building before.
Built in 1898, it was converted into condos in 2004.
The difference is, the developer kept most of the vintage features and also put in upscale non-cookie cutter finishes.
At 2300 square feet, it has coffer ceilings and moldings as well as a unique french chateau style fireplace mantel.
The kitchen is described as a “cooks kitchen” with a large kitchen island, white cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.
2 of the 3 bedrooms are on the lower level along with a family room.
It has central air, washer/dryer in the unit and garage parking.
The listing says the hospital across the street isn’t a problem as far as ambulance sirens because this is a “quiet zone.”
Let’s not chatter about why it is being sold just two years later (there are reasons for it).
Is this unit competition for all of the newer construction duplex downs we chatter about or is the target buyer different?
Teresa Griffith at Jameson Sotheby’s has the listing. See the pictures here.
