Buying vintage: Viewing a condo in Southport Corridor

We looked at a vintage foreclosure condo last week in Lincoln Square/ Ravenswood. Here's a look at a pretty large vintage one bedroom home at 1511 W Cornelia in Southport Corridor. The top floor unit just came back on the market at a reduced price of $218,000. Will it make the grade?

When viewing properties with clients we try and point out pluses and minuses... from an aesthetic and technical perspective. Here, we uncover an issue with the bathroom some buyers may not notice. Can we fit a standard tub and shower rig here? However, it could just come down to personal preference and the claw-foot tub and shower stay.
