Welcome to your new home PLUS income opportunity in the “Heart of the Arts” District, Oak Park’s trendy neighborhood that celebrates creativity. This is the first time this two flat has been offered on the market in 35 years – a golden opportunity is presented to savvy buyers now. Real Appeal! This charming home blends with the neighboring single family homes, but as a two flat it makes a great home plus an opportunity for rental income. Both units feature historic details including beautiful oak floors, vintage black and white hex tile, plaster walls, spacious and bright rooms, and tremendous storage and closet space. Although currently used as two bedrooms with a separate living and dining room, both apartments can easily be configured with three bedrooms or the perfect home office. Bonus space is available to devote to in-unit laundry or to install an additional bath. As the new owner, you can add value by renovating the kitchens and upgrading the baths. The first floor is rented through June 2022 and is the perfect option to become a large owner’s space by incorporating the basement. Meticulous maintenance and improvements include new ClimateGuard windows, new siding and gutters, upgraded electrical, new sidewalk and patio, new fencing and a new Weil McLean boiler. This attractive two flat sits on a double lot, with great space and light between the neighboring homes. A gardener’s dream with raised beds and amazing southern exposure! There is parking for 4 cars with a 1 car garage and 3 parking spaces. The Arts District invites all to eat, shop and explore artfully! Whether the District is hosting a function, or if you are just out exploring, there is something for everyone along Harrison Street. It’s a commuter’s dream location just blocks to the blue line train, Longfellow school and some of the best dining spots in town. Live beautifully and put the rental stream to work for you!
