A block from Grant Park’s marquee green space, this three-bedroom traditional has stood proudly over Oakland Avenue for nearly 115 years.
Today, the location is being marketed as a dream come true in the leafy neighborhood, with access to local eats and other walkable attractions having never been higher.
It listed in recent days with Adams Realtors for $679,000, and per that listing, this old home has been well-maintained and beloved over the years.
The curb appeal is high, with so much stonework and vegetation and breeze-block walls fronting the entry. The wraparound porch is pretty much capable of hosting a house party on its own.
Like a colorful quirkiness, original touches abound throughout these 2,634 square feet, including heart pine trim and floors, stained and leaded glass, and seven fireplaces that all function.
Few buyers are likely to call the kitchen and two and a half bathrooms cutting-edge showstoppers, but like the fireplaces, they appear functional, at the very least.
Elsewhere, a carport is tucked behind gates along a driveway at the left side of the home. There’s enough back patio for lounging with a couple dozen Shade Fest enthusiasts. And the koi pond is sufficiently sized for really massive fish.
Added bonuses, per the listing, include a full basement just waiting to be a workshop and, on the third floor, a master suite with city views.
