The condo, which is on the upper floor of the two-unit building at 1742 N Sedgwick St, appears to have some vintage features to match its old age (Trulia says the building dates back to the 1890s), but it’s probably a bit of a stretch to call it a full-on vintage gut.
Yes, the pictures below (courtesy of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) show off the place’s old stained glass and restored fireplace mantle, but there’s a good chance that its former residents weren’t showering with full-body sprays or cooking with a stainless-steel oven or microwave. There are some things buyers simply can’t do without, after all.
The rear of this building opens into what appears to be a tiled courtyard with a fountain. Across from the courtyard is the second of Sedgwick Court’s buildings, which fronts Fern Court and contains the project’s other two homes.
It’s hard to find much to complain about, location-wise. The Brown and Purple lines stop at the Sedgwick platform a couple blocks south, near the intersection of Sedgwick and North Avenue. Clark Street, Armitage Avenue, the southern end of Lincoln Avenue and Lincoln Park are all a short walk to the east, and it’s a straight shot from Sedgwick to Eugenie Street to LaSalle Drive to Lake Shore Drive, from the looks of it.
Buyers won’t get a garage, and I’m not sure how easy it is to park along Sedgwick or its neighboring streets, so that could be a sticking point for a few buyers.
