Here's a couple more shots of the area perks and homes:
I blew a chance to get some great summer photos today... forgot my camera.
I viewed this Ravenswood Manor single family home on the 2600 block of West Wilson with clients earlier in the summer. It was listed at $939,000 and went under contract in 22 days. It's hard to explain why it's so unique and special... this strip of Ravenswood Manor has an inherent peaceful and classy feel.
Here's the agent's remarks from the MLS: "RAVENSWOOD GARDENS! GRACIOUS STUCCO HOME ON FABULOUS LOT BOASTS SPACIOUS ROOMS, GREAT LIGHT AND SPECIAL DETAILS. FEATURES INCLUDE: OAK FLRS, WBFP, FORMAL DR W/BEAMED CEILING, STAINED GLASS WINDOWS, NEW BATHS, A/C, SUN ROOM W/HEATED FLRS AND 3rd FLR FAMILY RM. HOME HAS BEEN METICULOUSLY MAINTAINED AND SHOWS LIKE A MODEL. WALK TO ALL THE "HAPPENINGS" OF LINCOLN SQUARE. ONE BLOCK TO BROWN LINE."
The greatest asset is the amazing and unusual traingular backyard. But, even for such a cool house , in such a cool location with such cool decor (the owners have style)... it was not without floorplan issues. No master bath, a small kitchen and no flow to the outstanding backyard. There is simply a standard door out to the back. The home for the price has a little to be desired for the size, somewhat awkward lower level and bathroom situation. But, it should close for over $900,000... maybe over list price. So much for a housing slump in Chicago. This house will gain value with every improvement done as well.
