We are always looking for a great lot and location when buying single family homes! We are excited our client closed on this classic Oak Park cottage with a garden friendly yard.  522 N Marion is located on a fantastic block full of attractive homes, mature landscaping and just steps from shops and restaurants. The home is situated on a 50x149 lot with extra space between neighbors. Plenty of east, south and west light will help with any green thumb!

Large set-back front yard and inviting front porch looks out over mature landscaping.
The 50' lot feels spacious as the large side setbacks keep the houses separated.
The exterior of the house needs a little work (Old House Blues!). However the interior is move-in quality with nicely updated kitchen, baths, doors and preserved woodwork. Oak Parkers are no stranger to older, sometimes quirky homes. Some old homes just have a better feel than others and we knew this was "the one" for our buyer a few steps in the door. The outdoor space was the clincher!

Congrats to our much appreciated repeat client Sarah!! She is clearly thrilled to be with me (totally not terrified) at the closing last week!

350 Oak Park single family homes have closed as of September 8th of this year. The median price of a sold home is about $460,500.  Median price of Oak Park single family homes is up 18% since 2102.
