Extra-wide lot (about 1 and 1/2 standard lots)!! Prime Jefferson Park. Short walk (without crossing busy streets to) Beaubien elementary school. Also nearby: large Roberts Square Park, forest preserve trails, Jefferson Park and Forest Glen Metra stations, CTA and the expressway. Priced for land value but good enough to keep and remodel. One full bath and one full kitchen per floor. 2 bedrooms downstairs, 3 bedrooms upstairs. Only access to 2nd floor now is off the extra-large enclosed and finished back porch room; no representations about legality of the upper level as living space but it has great ceiling height and is quite nice. Even with needing total gut renovation, this property is a steal. Finished houses on wide lots here are in the $800,000 range. Not a short sale or foreclosure. Deadline to submit offers is Friday, April 9 at 4pm.
