    Description

    Incredibly Rare former storefront on DOUBLE WIDE corner lot with a 4 car garage. Enjoy the only reason people go to the burbs - for a yard, without having to suffer the mental anguish of living there! Light floods the property from both sides with no neighbor to block you from either angle. A gorgeous expanse of grass and gardens allows not only room to roam, but added light and privacy. Building is on the lot line so units are wider than average, and it shows. Each unit is 3 bedrooms with fully updated kitchens that open into dining areas, a feature missing in many 2 flats. The second floor is a gallery of vintage wonder, featuring coffered dining room ceilings, original Hutch, decorative Fireplace, Stained Glass, and untarnished walnut stained oak trim throughout. The first floor is a modern and clean space that DUPLEXES into the basement. The building has been OWNER OCCUPIED and impeccably maintained. Sellers spent over a $100k on stuff nobody wants to spend money on but really needs, including the following: Full floodproofing installed with drain tiles, check valves & sump pumps. Extensive masonry work including re-built parapets. 2 Newer boilers & a hot water heater. Plumbing & Electrical updates throughout. Roof repairs and replacement on building & garages. First floor has 12 foot ceilings that previous owner lowered but Easy to restore as are the former floor to ceiling storefront windows - lintels & support already in place. This is the Chicago gold standard in building: Steel beam & Steel post with enormous joists usually found with more sturdily built commercial properties. Tenants pay all utilities. Separate boiler radiant heating system for each unit. Top floor used to rent for $1600. First floor has market value of $1800-$2100. TWO Garages, including one with a 12 foot clearance, either offer an additional $700+ monthly rent or the unique chance to have your own workshop/studio/youtube-tiktok set. Prime Portage location - 2 Blocks to gorgeous Portage Park and the thriving commercial stretch of Irving Park. This type of property only comes on the market once every few years - select viewing times only.
