Another Great "Project" House
I stopped in at 2434 Leavenworth on my Tuesday broker tour yesterday. This house has great potential. It's located just down the hill from the foot of the crooked part of Lombard (where some of the Hell's Angels were gathered, taking photos). There are 3,600 square feet on the top two floors, as well as an additional 1,400 square feet of unwarranted rooms and bath on a third level. There's a quirky quality to the whole place, but the right person could come in and really spruce up the place. Among other things, one could renovate the kitchen and baths, and enhance the original features, such as the two grand staircases, six fireplaces, and wood casing throughout. List price is $2.8M.
