Take a seat and just look at that front yard! These owners love this house at 4012 N Hermitage, Chicago IL 60613 in the far north corner of the Lake View neighborhood. Is it perfect? No. Stairs need a little paint, a few roof shingles out of place. But no doubt there is pride of ownership that draws your eye to this single family home on a block with many gorgeous houses and yards.
The house was saved from the dead when sold in March 2000 for $310,000 as a possible "tear down". It was gut rehabbed and sold in September 2002 for $750K! It sits on a terrific 25x165 lot... extra deep allowing plenty of space for landscaping.
