Under Contract! Forest Glen double lot home gets new lease on life

5039 West Berwyn, Chicago IL 60630 originally listed at $319,000
Our clients wanted a large lot on a budget. Well... that's what they got! 5039 W Berwyn in Forest Glen is a vintage house on a terrific 58' x 150' corner lot. The sellers dropped the price to $299,900. We urged our clients to view the property quickly and make a decision. Bob and I immediately helped structure and negotiate the winning bid in a multiple offer situation.  The purchase contract is out of attorney review and headed for closing.

Wow!  What a yard.

The house is in surprisingly good shape but our clients will need more space. We quickly organized expert contractors to verify the scope and budget for renovations that our clients will undertake.
You can see the Forest Glen Metra steps from the front yard!

This scenic section of Forest Glen is serviced by a new Mariano's store a couple blocks away. Hop on the bike paths along the North Branch of the Chicago River or hike through the Forest Glen Woods just down the block. Beaubien and Farnsworth Elementary Schools service the area.
