On the north edge of Graceland West, 1459 W Sunnyside just went on the market for $ 660,000. It’s a smaller-than-typical lot size (92 x 27′) but it has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a family room on the third floor. The basement is unfinished and parking is rentable next door — but it gives you a chance to live in a good-sized home in a great neighborhood for under $ 700,000.
Just under contract is 4430 N Greenview, listed at $ 680,000 for 198 days. This 1896 3 bedroom 3.5 bath sits on a 25 x 165′ lot.
Both of these homes are atypical of Graceland West historic homes on oversized lots, therefore they were priced lower than many in the neighborhood.
In the last 6 months, homes that closed ranged from $ 835,000 on a court-ordered sale to $ 2,694,375 for 1454 W Warner. The Warner property was originally sold for land value (50 x 125′ lot) in 2008 for $ 1,155,000 and was then listed as a new construction single family home for $ 3,389,000 in April, 2009. Finally, in December, 2010, the home closed for $ 2,888,000
Graceland west is just north of Irving Park Road, between Graceland Cemetery (east) to Ashland (west). It’s a short walk to the hot Southport retail corridor. The south end of Graceland West has the added bonus of being in the Blaine School district – one of the Chicago Public School districts that parents seek out when buying a home. You can see the Chicago Public School boundary map by selecting this link.
