The Ernest Hemingway boyhood home went under contract on 3/8 of this year. Located in Oak Park, it was converted nto a 3-flat, but retains much of its vintage 1906 charm. It sits on a 75 x 186′ lot, and was designed by architect H. Fiddelke.

The typical Chicago city lot is 25 x 125 – this means homes have either small rooms with a center hall, or, bigger rooms that connect via one side hall (bedrooms up) while the downstairs is open. Are you tired of this floor plan?
Oversized Chicago city lots are the answer!
If you live in a house that’s 37.5-50′ wide, you have many more options for floor plan layouts.
If you have a deep lot – 152-183′ deep – you can expand the back and still have lots of space inside.

Fresh for 2012, this Edgewater Glen 1911 home is a terrific buy!
It’s currently a 3 bedroom 2 bath home, and it’s very liveable as it is, yet there are options for increasing the # of bedrooms and baths very easily. The home sits on a 30′ wide lot, and there is a tall attic with plumbing stubbed in – terrific space for a master suite! The basement is large and clean – it could be used as a play room or finished out as needed.
The home has been fully rehabbed, and it’s in mint condition – just what today’s buyers are looking for!! Pictures are available at this link, but don’t be fooled – it’s staged so well that the photos don’t do it justice – you need to see it in person.
It’s not my listing – I’m just reporting that I think it’s a good buy for someone interested in historic Chicago homes in Edgewater – Chicago’s north side.
