The kitchen has custom Omega cabinets, Arctic Blue granite counter tops from Finland, Ann Sacks tile backsplash and quartz counter tops on the island.

There’s stainless steel appliances along with a wine refrigerator.

  1. Overall, not a bad job – lot’s of vintage left. Can’t stand the forest of little hanging spotlights. Is there something special about granite from Finland, as opposed to other regions, or am I just supposed to be impressed by the level of detail in the listing?

  4. I don’t like the White Island plunked down in the dark kitchen.

  5. For $450K including 2 car parking makes this a great home! The floor plan and the modern updates make this an easy choice for someone in the market. The only downside that I see is there is really no view from any of the windows, although there is probably a great deal of natural light. All in all, a great place for the price!

  6. Very nice renovation.

    Strange, I can remember when this very building was a reeking slum, and the surrounding neighborhood was scary bad. You did not go north of the 3800 block at that time. Then, in 1990 or thereabouts, it changed so rapidly,that it was as though someone threw a switch. This building underwent a gut rehab, along with several others on the same block, and the gentrification quickly spread north along Sheridan Road.

    Same with Wicker Park and Logan Square.

    Young people might want to catch the next train instead of chasing the one that has just left the station. I expect that neighborhoods further north and west that have not been reclaimed, will be soon, and so will neighborhoods to the south and west. There is already an influx of Chinese people in the areas immediately south and west of Chinatown, clear to 47th St.

  7. “I don’t like the White Island plunked down in the dark kitchen.”

    Mix-matched cabinets are “in” now. The bottom cabinets may be different color than the top. And the islands are usually a different color now too.
