Rare East Lakeview row house sales

I snapped a photo of these row homes on the 600 block of West Oakdale in East Lakeview after visiting a client's home across the street. The most recent of these Oakdale row houses to sell was 621 W Oakdale for $575,000.  The three beds, two baths nicely updated home with garage parking sold quickly in  for in 2013. 

East Lakeview has several groups of vintage row house developments throughout the neighborhood. I always walk a little slower by the vintage row houses and take a longer look.

There are few single family homes that come on the market... let alone in the budget.  A row house with no monthly assessment is the next best thing when seeking the bustling East Lakeview lifestyle.  They tend to be very interesting architecturally as well.

East Lakeview sales area is basically east of North Halsted and north to south from West Irving Park Road to West Diversey Parkway.

Like detached single family homes, not too many row houses come on the market each year. The largest and highest priced row houses to sell in the last 12 months is 637 W Surf for $1,160,000 (in February of this year).  From what I can see, the only two true fee-simple row houses to sell in East Lakeview over the past year are referenced above at 621 W Oakdale and 637 W Surf.
