SUSTAINABLE, GREEN URBAN LIVING ON RAVENSWOOD

Happy New Year!  Today, we share information on a gorgeous property in sustainable, walkable, wonderful Ravenswood in Chicago, 60640, located between the communities of Andersonville and Lincoln Square.  I just noticed that a two unit building we have been wondering about for awhile is for sale.  I am familiar with this building because I used to live next door.  It is a two unit, three level building on an oversized lot that is 150 feet deep.  Extra deep lot = large building + deck + vegetable garden + yard and two car garage.  The yard has plenty of sun to grow your own veggies.  It is a two unit building so living in one unit while renting out the other one helps with economic sustainability.  You can walk to the new Marianos Fresh Market, opening in spring 2014, and purchase locally grown produce, meats and more the Andersonville farmers market on Wednesday afternoons from spring through fall.

It is located on what appraisers are describing as a “greenbelt“.  Commuting is easy as the Metra Rail station is a lovely short two block walk down Ravenswood Avenue and the train takes you downtown in about ten minutes.  Just as convenient is the brown line Leland stop which is a quick five block walk.  The property is two blocks from the LA Fitness, opening first quarter of 2014 at the corner of Ravenswood and Lawrence.  Ideally situated, you can shop local in nearby Andersonville, Lincoln Square and Ravenswood.  Just a few blocks from the Divvy and I-Go bike and car sharing programs.

So, all around, it is a wonderful place to call home.  Contact Maggie Finegan at 773-502-1673 to find out more about the area or to schedule a showing for this property or other two flats in the area.
