Act Fast for Historic Alta Vista Row House, Chicago

It's one of those joys in Chicago like a row house in Old Town Triangle or an estate along the river in Ravenswood Manor. There is inherent pride, value and distinction to the brick and dirt it sits on.
Sometimes you just know a certain location and home is for you. It will calm a soul.

Too much?

I think many of the owners on Alta Vista Terrace in Lakeview would agree that they have something special.

There are forty homes on the block, all sitting on roughly 24X40 lots... and they don't come up for sale often. Only three homes have sold over the last two years. From $555,000 for a handyman's special to $725,000 for a well maintained and appointed move-in ready row house. All three selling in 2007 and in under 20 days on the market.

This is a really special block, one of the most charming in all of Chicago.

I've done a slide show / video tour of Alta Vista Terrace, and it's at YouTube:
