Property Description

This classic solid brick 1926 vintage 2 flat has been restored to its original integrity and sits on a secluded area east of Dodge and located in the West Village Arts District. It is comprised of 2 separate units, each unit having 2 bedrooms/1 full bath. The first-floor owners unit features original solid wood doors, restored hardware, and plaster archways, with original maple floors. A west facing seasonal back porch provides additional living space to the primary bedroom. The classic design bodes well for either a single family home conversion or being utilized as a two unit apartment building. Flexibility allows you to decide what works best; test out being a landlord, while living on one floor, or rent them both out. Brand new sidewalks, lead to a bright and sunny landscaped front yard, and a rebuilt front porch. The previous owner updated much of the plumbing to copper, new kitchen cabinets, newer appliances and bathroom fixtures. The second floor features a new second floor flat roof that is ready to be finished with wood decking for use as an outdoor space. The basement offers a great space for a future family room, home office, or whatever pleases you, and has been recently painted along with all exterior windows. A two-car garage sits at the rear of the property on the alley, between the building and the enclosed yard with privacy fence. There is a mature Cedar tree in the yard,along with evergreens creating privacy on the south side of the lot. Additionally, you have a wide open lawn that is beautiful as is, or do create your own design to suit your needs. This property has been lovingly cared for and with additional support in continuing the process of improvements, its value will mature with the market. Situated on a quiet one way street, one block from the new Robert Crown Recreation Center, near parks, grocery, Starbucks, ETHS, award-winning Washington Elementary school, and a short walk to downtown Evanston shops & restaurants. It is a 25-30 minute drive to Chicago and offers easy public transport via Purple line and Metra, both located at Main Street Station. 94 Edens expressway, which connects with many other highways, is accessed at Dempster Street. Ridge Avenue is also a great transport to Lake Shore Drive for commuters.
