If you’re looking for vintage affordability, you might be interested in this four-bedroom 1.1-bath single-family home at 746 N Central Ave in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood. To say the home is in move-in condition would be a stretch, as the listing agent says it’s “ready for your ideas.”
But we’re betting the house has potential. Like many of the other vintage beauties in this part of the neighborhood, this house was built in the early 1900s, when wrap-around porches, pocket doors and parlors were in vogue. And this house still has its original woodwork.
If you’re worried about the costly problems that can arise in a fixer-upper, note that both the plumbing and electric have been updated, along with the furnace and water heater. The home also has a new roof.
Prudential Preferred Properties has the home listed for $304,000.
