Have your pick of Ravenswood townhomes

It's a busy time at Winnemac Manor on the 5100 block of North Damen in Ravenswood. Six of the twenty-one townhomes are currently for sale ranging in price from $499,000 to an eye opening $599,000. There are few differences that meet the naked eye of five of the homes; three bedrooms plus den, two and one-half baths, two car attached garage, same outdoor space and range from $499K to $529K.

If choosing between these homes, there are a couple details that stand out. The unit I like the best has gorgeous built-ins for storage and the best views facing south. It is priced well among the other five homes and worth a little bit of a premium due to the finish work. The biggest obsatcle in my opinion to most of these townhomes is the outdoor space. The terrace views are not that attractive and there is little or no space for a table etc... These places are all about the huge master baths, large closets, two car garage and ease of living. They are great for those looking for a home office.

The standout is the 4 bedrooms, three and one-half baths unit that also features a huge roof level terrace (asking $599K). This is a place I could call home. In fact, I LOVED the nearly identical unit next door that sold earlier in the year for considerably less. The home was impeccable and showed wonderfully. The new owner got themselves a great deal.
