This great single family home at 4829 N Paulina is NOT my listing – I just think it’d a great home in a small pocket location that is often overlooked.
- Wide and deep lot – 33 x 163
- 1898 home – renovated
- Updated kitchen with newer cabinets and stainless steel appliances
- hardwood floors on first floor
- 3rd floor master bedroom
- 3 bedrooms on second level
- back deck and landscaped yard
- Finished basement – large rec room!
- Great location- steps from Metra, new Mariano’s on Lawrence Ave.
This pocket often gets overlooked — It’s north of Lawrence Ave, and the East Ravenswood historic district is SOUTH of Lawrence… it feels more RAVENSWOOD than Uptown, yet it’s in the 8003 census tract – Uptown. It feels more Andersonville than Uptown, too, but that is generally known to start at 5200 North(Foster) – 8077 census tract.
This lovely section is quiet, charming, close to lots of great amenities, but because it’s not easily described, agents and buyers often don’t include it when looking in a specific neighborhood search.
Chicago Geography Lesson:
We have 77 communities, 50 wards, 85 zip codes, and (not surprisingly), these are NOT geographically the same!
Generally speaking, real estate agents search by zip codes, census tract areas, or by coordinates (# N/S and # E/W).
chicago zip codes (from ZipCodes.com)
We agents can draw maps around areas, such as school boundary areas and historic districts, but when you hear “Uptown” and “Edgewater”, these specifically refer to census areas, not just neighborhoods.
