    Default Two Bedroom Apartment in Chicago

    Spacious Top Floor Andersonville Two Bedroom Asks $299K

    Located in a classic North Side brick building, this spacious top floor unit near the heart of Andersonville is asking just $299,500. Surrounded by trees and filled with sunlight, this two bedroom, one bathroom unit retains some older architectural features like its brick fireplace, but the kitchen was updated just three years ago. There's a formal dining room, a den, a small deck space and a shared patio space. According to the listing, garage parking is also included. Homeowners dues are only $300 per month, making this home a very reasonable deal for anyone looking for something with vintage charm.

    that's a really nice apartment and i can't believe the price. or maybe i've just been in ny for too long. it needs white paint on the walls instead of those nasty colours and also i'd change the kitchen cabinet doors or at least paint/stain them a light colour. i really hate that dark wood they use, especially when it clashes with the floors, which it does here. plus, there's that lovely built in white butler's pantry next to it and the light wood door next to that, why the fuck would you pick dark wood cabinets? it just makes the room look dark and small. also, i'm starting to find it really dated looking.

    Great space, but I would totally redecorate it. HATE all the wood, especially in the kitchen, ugh. Very bulky and seventies.

    I would prefer light colors and/or wood in the kitchen, I like it bright in there. But I love the space inside and the outside patio, that's a great apartment. I hate the orange chairs at the table, they look like school chairs.

    Nice patio, but it looks like half of Chicago can see you out there.

    I will take it with the dark wood, thankyouverymuch. I will also repaint the walls in a color scheme that did not originate in the 1970s.

    I really like it, even though it looks like each room has different crown molding. Or none . I don't like that wall feature in the DR of the brown.

    I have family in Andersonville. My aunt owns a three story bungalow with two separate units. She would probably sell one for a similar price. Plus, if there is an L (elevated train) in the backyard, it drives the price down too.

    The only thing I hate are the hexagonal tiles.
