A Pre-War 3-Bedroom in East Lakeview for Under $420,000: 419 W. Aldine

415 w aldine #1

This vintage 3-bedroom in 415 W. Aldine in East Lakeview just came on the market.

The building was constructed in 1927 and has just 2 units per floor.

Like a lot of construction from the pre-war era, this unit is large with many vintage features including crown molding, built-ins and French windows.

The Gallery foyer has coved ceilings and there is a separate dining room.

The third bedroom is currently a walnut paneled library with built-in bookcases.

The listing says there is an “updated kitchen” with gray and white cabinets, white appliances and stone counter tops.

There’s no parking with the building, however, and it doesn’t have central air or washer/dryer in the unit. There is coin laundry in the building and window a/c units.

But at 2,000 square feet, is this a deal for those looking for a large vintage unit near the lake?

Brad Lippitz at Berkshire Hathaway KoenigRubloff has the listing. See the pictures here.

  2. Other than not having a lake view, this place is pretty sweet

    Would make an awesome second home in the city

  3. 4 units per floor. Low floor not a plus.

  4. Very sweet and HUGE place for the price, in a prime, walkable neighborhood no less. Very well- maintained, with a HOA that is reasonable for the size and what it includes.

    Even the taxes are pretty reasonable, even though they aren’t likely to stay that way for much longer.

  6. “Even the taxes are pretty reasonable, even though they aren’t likely to stay that way for much longer.”

    The AV didn’t go up, so shouldn’t be too much higher.

  7. Oops. Cook County Prop Info site has incorrect 2015-AVs listed. The AV for this unit actually went up almost 15%, so taxes probably will, too.

    The $5365 is *without* the HO exmeption, which would reduce the taxes by ~$500.
