Tucked against the South Loop near Stella Link, a mishmash of townhomes mostly built in the mid-sixties and seventies has a somewhat newer neighbor in this 2003 home. It further expands that novelty status by including what could be the only open lot in the small neighborhood of lot-filling homes installed cheek-to-jowl and close to the meandering streets. The property (with property) landed on the market Thursday after refinishing its wooden floors and adding some new carpet and paint. It has a $499,000 asking price.
A three-sided fireplace behind glass means the glow can flow no matter how the main room gets furnished. As currently staged, seating is at a premium:
The breakfast area (below) also appears to be the first floor’s door hub. Open one to access food, the garage off a shared driveway, or the side yard . . .
with patio. Slightly recessed and slightly shaded by a pergola, it has room for a few more chairs:
The open room upstairs has a picture window facing east over the vacant-for-now side lot:
All 3 bedrooms are upstairs, starting with the master suite at the front of the house . . .
which uses a little glass to get more light into the bathroom:
One secondary bedroom gets its close-up in the listing photos:
So does the other full bathroom (below). There’s also a powder room downstairs:
There appears to be a line in the grass marking the boundary between the 2 lots included in this listing. Together, they total 6,935 sq. ft. (The vacant lot is 3,975 sq. ft.)
Elsewhere in the community, there’s a retro swimming pool and picnic park. The listed property, which has an open house Saturday afternoon, comes with a $1,412 annual maintenance fee.
