This 3-bedroom rowhouse in the newly built Basecamp River North development at 459 W. Hobbie in Old Town just came on the market.
It’s so new, I don’t yet have a picture of these rowhouses.
I debated what neighborhood to put this in as the original advertising for this development WAS called “Basecamp River North” but this listing says this is Old Town. I might have even called it Gold Coast.
It is north of Chicago Avenue but south of Division. It’s near the Old Town developments so I’m calling it Old Town.
This was a Ranquist and CMK development of 47 rowhouses. It sold out quickly about a year ago.
Construction has finished and they are closing now.
This is the first re-sale that I have seen come on the market.
It has two-levels with a 2-car attached garage on a 21×59 lot.
There is Italian Archisesto kitchen and baths.
It has polished and heated concrete floors on the main level with floor to ceiling windows.
This has the preferred townhouse layout with a half bath on the main level so you don’t have to go up the stairs to the bathroom.
All three bedrooms are on the second floor along with a media room.
Zillow and Redfin are saying this unit closed for $730,760.
It has come on the market at $919,000.
I haven’t seen a true “flip” since 2007-2008, i.e. where there was no renovation and no one has lived in the property.
If you missed out on buying one of these from the developer, will you pay an extra $188,240 to buy it now?
Katharine Waddell at Jameson Sothebys has the listing. See the pictures here.
