The photographer who took the listing photos for this new building at 3045 N Clybourn Ave managed to isolate it from the surrounding buildings, but in the context of Clybourn Avenue in North Center it sticks out like a (well-manicured) sore thumb. Jameson Real Estate hosted an open house for the contemporary three-flat on Saturday, so I stopped by and looked around.
According to Jameson agent Philip Soto, who was working the open house on Saturday morning, the three homes in the building came on the market in December, and all three are still available.
Soto says the homes are wired for solar panels, but that it would cost about $30,000 to purchase and install them. Several reports say that solar energy will become much more affordable in the coming years because of increased production of silicon, but for now, $30,000 sounds a bit steep.
The building features a duplex down, a single-floor unit on the second floor, and a duplex up on the top floor. All three homes have three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, and they are priced from the $390s to the $540s. According to the listings, the homes come with Fisher Paykel and KitchenAid appliances, quartz countertops, and a Miele espresso machine.
