I just saw this really attractive and renovated golden brick “octagon” bungalow at 5057 N Francisco come on the market as a short sale this week. It has 5 bedrooms and 4 ½ baths, and is listed with Jerry Tran of Je/Re Properties.
It’s unfortunate for the owner to have to sell short. Once listed for over $1M and then $800,000, the new asking price of $695,000 is getting more attractive for this beauty on an oversized lot.
The home is in the Lincoln Square community area of Chicago. The neighborhood is adjacent to the popular Budlong Woods enclave and offers a lot of amenities.
Across the street is River Park, which has a great Olympic size pool, water playground, baseball and soccer fields and miles of connected running paths along the river.
Swedish Covenant Hospital is adjacent to the home. At first, living near a hospital may not sound great, but the facility is really fantastic and features the popular Galter Life Center health and wellness club with indoor pools and classes.
Grocery shopping at a brand new “green” Dominick’s, highway access and good CTA bus runs are nearby. This would be a great little spot for a buyer who needs a lot of space and a wants suburban atmosphere outside the door.
