Traipse through an arbor gate and garden to enter this Westridge home. It’s more of a complex, actually, as there are 3 linked structures, one of which is listed as 1 1/2 stories. They open onto a central courtyard. As updated, altered, and currently used, the floor plan offers an artsy alternative to the neighborhood’s typical fifties ranch-style homes.
The property has no garage, but it does have an art studio and “flex space” linking it to the study. Elsewhere on the first floor, the living and dining rooms open to each other and have views of the patio. Two of the 3 bedrooms are downstairs, including the master bedroom. Its bathroom has a pedestal sink and tub shower. In the kitchen, the counters are a patchwork of tile.
Listed in March at $519,000, the 3,669-sq.-ft. home rambles over a 7,600-sq.-ft. lot just off Buffalo Speedway near Main St. and the South Loop, a mile and a half west of Reliant Park.
