Last March, we chattered about a 3-bedroom duplex in a converted synagogue at 1243 N. Wolcott in Wicker Park which had been bought in 2009 and then rehabbed by an HGTV designer.
See our prior chatter here.
Back in March, some of you thought it was over-rehabbed and would appeal to too small a niche of buyers. A few others thought the rehab was great but the price too high.
The unit has since reduced $75,100.
If you recall, this 3-bedroom last sold in December 2009.
It always had exposed brick and high ceilings.
But now it also has built-ins, crown molding, gothic arches and a new kitchen with custom walnut cabinets, granite counter tops and upscale stainless steel appliances.
One of the bathrooms has a log as the sink (make sure you check out ALL the pics.)
In March, someone said that this would sell in the $500,000s.
Is this new price closer to reality?
You can see the pictures from the prior sale here.
Daniel Otto at Conlon Real Estate has the listing. See the pictures of the rehabbed unit here.
