Here’s What a New Construction SFH Looks like in Sauganash: 6028 N. Hiawatha


This 5-bedroom single family home at 6028 N. Hiawatha in Sauganash came on the market in March 2016.

It’s new construction on a 104x140x64x54 lot.

It has a rare 2-car front attached garage (like you would get in the suburbs.)

4 out of the 5 bedrooms are on the second floor with the 5th in the basement.

There’s a family room on the main level and a large recreation room in the basement.

There’s a “Chef’s kitchen” with stainless steel appliances and black granite counter tops.

This is a neighborhood with mostly older homes.

This house was under contract in May but remains available.

The price has been reduced $49,000 to $950,000.

It’s not the only new construction available in the neighborhood. The lot right next door to this house is also going to have a new construction single family home.

Is the teardown phenomena going to take off in Sauganash?

Barbara O’Connor at Dream Town has the listing. See the pictures here.

  1. Suburbs is right

    Interior looks cheap for $1MM

  2. They should really indicate what the ceiling heights are. They look low to me. Also, not a fan of what appears to be commodity grade granite in a house like this. And can’t you get more architectural detail at this price point there – e.g. coffered ceilings, tray ceilings, wainscoting?

    I’m running into this as I look at homes in other, cheaper, cities. I would hope to be able to get a home that would cost $1.5 MM in Lake View for about $1 MM but instead the finishes in these homes just don’t hit the same bar. And yet they put the money into the square footage.

  3. I agree with above comments. Looks cheap and was expecting a more high end finish. People need to stop installing those backsplashes. Sure, they look ok on a small sample, when when installed they look like crap. Too busy.

  4. Can we agree that a Kitchen isn’t a Chef’s (or Gourmet) by virtual of expensive appliances alone. A Chef’s kitchen has multiple sinks for food prep and a water spout over the oven for filling big cauldron like pots.

  5. Really a shame. E for effort but that house looks CHEAP inside and out. That bathroom looks like those in an apartment near any mall in America. A wooden porch? Seriously?! Those were not allowed in the Detroit suburb I lived in. Somebody tried it and the city made them tear it down a rebuild as it originally was (yeah it’s going to cost more than $99 and some beer for your buddies). I applauded them for that. Take a drive through any neighborhood that allows wooden porches unless it was original to the historic home.

    Budget $100K for upgrades and replacing cheap within 3 years. Nevermind it’s for sure to be the first to blow away in a windstorm. Unbelievable.

  6. Furthermore, I’d never buy a home with those wire shelves in the closets. They’ll break – WITHOUT FAIL!

  7. CA Development isn’t exactly know for high end residential. They are fairly decent at commodity type mid-grade developments. They’re also good at buying overpriced lots in questionable locations and packing as many large overpriced homes as they can onto the smallest parcels allowed by zoning code. Such as the residences of OIP, Edgebrook Glen (previously featured on CC)

    They also seem to love building adjacent to railroad tracks.

  9. Also, this style of home is everywhere these days on the NW side and NW suburbs. It’s nearly always blue, with that staggered fake brick facade at the foundation, on the higher end it’s hardie board siding, not sure what this is though, can’t tell from the pics (or at least I can’t tell). The builder tweaks up the floor plan a little here and there. This one looks a little tweaked on the front porch, like there are is a post missing on the right side next to the garage, and the porch roof just kind of juts out. Weird looking.

  16. Ok, curiosity has gotten to me big time. What is it with Old Style beer Jan Terri? Is it an inside joke?

    Someone will buy this place up before Thanksgiving Day. If it does not then the developer is in big trouble and it will definitely sell by Spring 2017.

  17. To get to the master bath, you have to walk through the master closet. Leaves you wondering…

  18. “Someone will buy this place up before Thanksgiving Day. If it does not then the developer is in big trouble and it will definitely sell by Spring 2017.”

    Nimesh – The developer was already in trouble. This has been for sale for almost three years. And still no buyer in sight. On the plus side they finally have a buyer under contract for the place next door. And the third property is finally on the market.

    Here is the problem with this house. The developer bought an old church and rectory and took down the church building. Then they planned to restore the rectory and add two additional homes on an odd shaped triangular lot. Did I mention that the homes will all back up to busy Peterson Ave? Nice enough homes but at $1.4 million, 1.0 million, and now $975K most buyers in that area want bigger yards and more privacy. We have friends that live within a few blocks. And they have an older brick home with a huge yard and fairly reasonable taxes!
