We just wrote about a bungalow we sold at 2236 W Carmen that has been mostly torn down for development. On Tuesday 2224 W Carmen pictured here was listed for sale for $389,000 (not my listing). The home will most certainly be bought for gut renovation and possibly tear down... unless the seller chooses a buyer that wants to preserve the exterior. It's very possible a "move-in" homeowner will buy the home to gut rehab and dormer rather than tear down. We'll see.

This has been a significant year for new construction houses and total renovations around Winnemac Park. There are many. However, these bungalow redevelopments represent the biggest changes. For the duration the exteriors as a whole have remained intact even if the homes were renovated with dormers or full second floors. The streets remained relatively unified in architecture.
|The area around Winnemac Park from Lawrence to Foster and Western to Ravenswood has seen a lot of new construction and total gut renovation houses this past couple years.|
