Noted this week in Chicago: Julie Woodward-Trenker commented on a two-bedroom with a wood burning fireplace in Logan Square, Laura Talaske is showing a E.E. Roberts-designed prairie in Oak Park, plus our Note of the Week from Susan Ani of Baird and Warner.
Note of the Week:
After I got over the surprise of learning that there is a street named "London" in Chicago, this listing became easy to like. A fascinating offering. Fascinating because there is a vacant lot next door being offered for sale by the same owner. It is not rectangular because the street is curved. The shape of the developed lot, as well as the undeveloped lot,takes an interesting dog leg jag about 1/3 of the way from front to back. But enough on the land: the property is very nicely updated and maintained. The bonus bump out room, visible in the photo, seems to have been an addition after the intial construction; it is tastefully done. The back of each lot has space for 4-5 cars, bringing in additional income. The neighbor to the south is a functioning church, and to the north is another residential property. A smart buyer will also acquire the vacant lot, currently listed for $75,000. Other than the odd shape of the lot, this is a bargain price for vacant land in an otherwise developed street block.
