Under Contract! This Old Town apartment has us in a New York state of mind

Classic refinished parquet floors, city and lake views... it was love at first site (all photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty).
Our Manhattan transplant recently secured a contract at 1360 N Sandburg #2401 last week (asking $355,000).  The Sandburg Village apartment in the Cummings House building in Old Town offered a touch of old city class while featuring move-in ready updates.  We attended the property inspection today on behalf of our out-of-state client. Bob or I always attend the property inspection.

Large high floor corner unit with coveted balcony.
City view looking south (spectacular when in the unit).
We helped our client (moving to Chicago for a new job) determine the best high-rise buildings on the Near North and North Sides with pros and cons, budget considerations, amenities and convenient locations.  All that is great but the intangibles of a classic feel and the cool corner views took front stage like in a Broadway play.  This is our second Sandburg Village deal within the last year.

The Cummings House building is just steps from historic landmark Germania Club building, Chicago History Museum, surrounding shops, tennis courts and the association pool.
Local Potash market and tennis courts across the street.

The contract is in attorney review.  We look forward to helping our buyer client with a smooth transition to Chicago and a stress free closing.  Check out one of our past sold listings at Sandburg Village HERE
