It Was a 3-Bedroom and Now is a 2-Bedroom With a Study and is Reduced: 3808 N. Pine Grove In Lakeview

We last chattered about this 2-bedroom at 3808 N. Pine Grove in East Lakeview in December 2012.

See our prior chatter here.

Back then, it was listed as a 3-bedroom and was priced at $314,900.

Now, is has come back on the market as a 2-bedroom with a study and a new list price of $299,000.

If you recall, the building was constructed in 1912 and the unit still has some of its vintage features such as a coffered ceiling.

Ithas the perferred layout of 2 bathrooms (instead of 1 bath which is more common in vintage units) and a separate dining room.

The kitchen has a granite island, cherry cabinets and black appliances.

It also has washer/dryer in the unit, a parking space and a private deck.

There is no central air, however. There are window units.

Did listing it as a 3-bedroom when apparently it was a 2-bedroom lose this property momentum?

Is it now a deal at under $299,000 with the parking included?

Amy Diamond at Coldwell Banker still has the listing. See the pictures here.

    Possibly, but more likely it was when people drove up and saw the building in person. It’s GROSS, it looks like a rental. The front yard is basically dirt with ugly dying shrubs. Kind of an eyesore on the block. It wouldn’t take much to fix it up, I don’t understand why they don’t. It really looks bad.

  2. UNLESS I’m thinking of the building to the right of this one… I can’t remember and this one is no beauty either (though it could be), but I’m pretty sure the nasty one is next door. My bad. It’s Monday!

  3. You’re thinking of 3812. This place has great curb appeal.
