We’ve chattered about this house at 3526 N. Marshfield in Lakeview numerous times over the years.
The last time was in August 2013.
See that chatter here.
If you recall, it not only has “ornately carved faces” on the exterior (look closely at the house) but in prior listings it talked about “underground tunnels”- although that reference has now been removed.
The house was built in 1889. It is on an irregular lot measuring 27.2×73.5x60x51.5.
The listing, once again, says the house is being sold “as-is.”
All four bedrooms are on the second level and there is a family room in the basement.
The kitchen has dark cabinets and white and black appliances as well as a kitchen island.
The house has central air and a gated yard with parking for 1-car.
Once again, the listing also mentions that the house has a celebrity past. Many of you named who owned it all the way back in March 2012- but this “celebrity” lived in the house nearly 20 years ago.
See the March 2012 chatter here if you want to find out who the “celebrity” is.
There are several questions regarding this house:
- It never sold in 2013 even though that was a hot market. What has been going on with it for the last 3 years?
- What’s the life span of a celebrity owner? (i.e. does anyone care years later???)
- What happened to the underground tunnels?
It has come on the market at $35,000 higher than the 2013 price at $685,000.
Will this finally sell in 2016?
Jamey Johnson at Kale Realty has the listing. See the pictures here.
