Evanston has seen a development boom during the last decade, both residential and commercial, and home values have soared. But first-time buyers can still find deals in pockets of the neighborhood, such as CloHo. That’s “close to Howard Street” for anyone who hasn’t heard the nickname (since we just made it up, we’re guessing that’s most).
The home obviously isn’t expansive, but it includes gated parking and sits just three blocks from the CTA’s Howard Street Terminal, where Red, Purple and Yellow lines converge, along with a variety of bus routes.
If you’re thinking the exterior ain’t the prettiest thing you’ve ever seen, you might want to continue inside anyway. The updated condo includes a custom glass-tiled backsplash, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, maple cabinets and a ceramic tile kitchen floor. Living areas have hardwood flooring, and the hardwood floor in the bedroom includes an inlay.
