This 2-bedroom penthouse in the vintage building at 433 W. Briar in East Lakeview just came on the market.
The building was built in 1929 and has 34 units.
We’ve chattered about this building many times but most of it was in 2008-2011. The building was converted in 2007, at the end of the housing bubble, and it got caught in the bust.
This penthouse has tall ceilings with crown molding and wainscoting.
There are hardwood floors, arched doorways and French doors.
There’s no pictures of the kitchen (directly) but you can see it in one of the pictures. All the kitchens and baths in this building were replaced in 2007 when the building was converted.
It appears to have wood cabinets and a stainless steel refrigerator.
Where do the stairs go? (see the pictures)
Is this a duplex?
The listing says there’s a master bedroom designer suite. Is that what is on the second floor?
This unit has central air and washer/dryer in the unit. There’s no parking with the building but the listing says you can buy it across the street for $40,000.
The listing also says it’s leased until 2/28/2017.
At $619,000 is this a deal for a penthouse in this neighborhood?
Anthony Zaskowski at Keller Williams has the listing. See the pictures here.
