Ravenswood houses gone modern!

Here's a couple photos of modern design style homes under construction on the 2400 and 2500 blocks of West Winona in the western Ravenswood, Lincoln Square area.  It's spike of three modern style homes currently under construction within a few blocks of each other in this area of mostly traditional houses.

I took these shots with my phone camera on a walk down Winona Street to River Park.  There have been several sales for "land value" on these two blocks in the last couple years.  Two have large modern homes being built and nearing completion. 

2441 W Winona on a 25 x 110 lot was a conventional estate sale and bought last year for $150,000.  A great land deal for the new owner building this new construction.

This home below at 2540 W Winona has been a bit of a curiosity with several neighbors asking me about it.

2540 W Winona is on a larger 25 x 170 lot and the original structure sold last year as a short sale for $155,000.  The home took 6 months to close from the contract to the closing.
2540 W Winona features a rare attached garage under the house.  
This Lincoln Square location can be associated with the Ravenswood neighborhood or "Lincoln Bend". The two blocks straddle Western Avenue and Lincoln Avenue which somewhat cuts it off from the greater neighborhood flow.  However, this slightly removed location between busier streets allows for a nice discount on large, newer houses and land while still close to many great Lincoln Square amenities and parks.  There is a large contingent of newer luxury homes represented on these two blocks.
