Quick heads up on this one from the neighbors…

A few of us swung through 1530 Glenlake for the open house last weekend. Really cool to hear all the great stories about the neighborhood from the family that grew up on the block. If you have any friends that are interested in moving to the neighborhood, you might share this with them before it hits the MLS.

Jenny is going to have another open house Tomorrow, November 30th between 12:00 to 4:00 pm. She is also available at other times if someone needs to make an appointment for a specific day and time. We will post a few more inside pictures as soon as we get them.

Between the wonderful block, the new Metra stop and the new Whole Foods within walking distance, we’re guessing it is not lasting for too long after it gets on the (official) internet.

There are more details about her family’s home below if you are interested:

“My parents Louis and Maura Wicklin purchased the home in 1961. They raised 4 children in the house with only 1 bathroom and the original kitchen was just  12′ by 11′!  We believe that it was built in 1908.   My father finished the attic and moved the boys upstairs in approx 1972. The small bedroom on the 2nd floor became the office for my mom to do her school work. The newer 2 car garage and the kitchen addition were built in 1990.  The kitchen is now a spacious 24′ x 11′ with motorized skylights and a sliding glass door onto a spacious deck. A half bath is located at the entrance to the kitchen.  It’s ready for someone to move in and put in their own touches.

We think we’ve priced the house at a fair price of $549,900.  It needs a new roof (although it does not leak), and an updated kitchen and bath.  The basement is unfinished.– Jenny

You can call 773-531-4778 for any appointments to see the house.  Tim Wicklin is the contact for any offers on the house.  His email is:  timwicklin@gmail.com.
