If you've always dreamed of being able to walk to Lenox Square and you like grandly-scaled homes with a lot of 1990's charm, then this could be your lucky day. This 3 bed, 3 bath home in a gated community is bank-approved for a short sale at $400,000 (though the listing notes some 'issues' that have arisen), so it's safe to assume the seller is motivated, if a bit hamstrung by his or her pesky bankers. In spite of some of the decor and an overwhelming theme of 90's white, there do appear to be some modern updates, like granite and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. There's a full finished basement for homeless adult children or elderly parents, so bring the whole family and try and take the bank for all its worth...they deserve it.
