We last chattered about this 4-bedroom single family home at 2722 N. Wilton in Lincoln Park in August 2011.
See our prior chatter here.
At that time it was one of the few Lincoln Park single family homes to be on the market for $500,000 or less.
The brown, purple, red line El tracks were directly behind the house.
If you recall, the house is built on a 25×75 lot, has a 1 car garage but there is space in the back underneath the tracks for 4 additional outdoor parking spots.
The kitchen has been redone with some new white cabinets, granite counter tops and sink. The kitchen window was also covered by cabinets (see the before kitchen in the prior chatter.) Is this a smart move- to remove a window?
It has a fully finished basement with a wine fridge which was also there in the 2011 sale.
From the prior listing pictures it appears that there was bathroom renovation work as well.
3 bedrooms are on the second floor with a den or office on the main level. In this listing, the den is called a bedroom. In 2011, it was only a 3 bedroom home.
It has central air.
In 2011, the house went under contract in just a few days and sold just under asking at $492,500.
3 years later it is back on the market asking $799,000.
Is another bubble brewing in the GreenZone?
April Frazer at Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices KoenigRubloff has the listing. See the pictures here.
