*** Home has been Sold! ***
Pat Bukovy one of our readers has a small house on the market and asked me to share it with you. Although selling homes is not part of this blog, it is something I may develop in the future if there is a demand for this service.
It has taken me awhile as there has been much going on in the tiny house world of late. So I apologize to Pat for taking so long to show it to you. I’ll let Pat tell you about her home.
I have lived in a small house (1 BR/ 1 Bath / 1.5 stories) for 23 years and it worked fine for me.
I took the square footage of each room, added them together and came up with around 769 sq ft. There’s a connected utility room that I did not include nor the garage. The deck is about 20′ by 22′. The lot size is 30′ x 125′.
The first floor has three rooms. The first one off the entrance I’ve converted to a home office, the middle one is the living/dining (knotty pine pictures) and the room before the back exit is the kitchen. The bathroom is downstairs also. Upstairs is a 13 x 7 sitting room (I use it for a sewing room) and then the bedroom.
It’s very pet friendly — dog door, no grass in the backyard, with a dog run and fenced yard. I’ve made up for the lack of grass with tons of potted flowers. It’s a quiet neighborhood — near O’Hare.
Harwood Heights and Norridge create an island surrounded by the city of Chicago. It’s a town of about 8000 and they’re creating a ‘downtown Harwood Heights’ (whoo-hoo!) that will be near the house. They just built a beautiful new library (eisenhowerlibrary.org) which is two blocks from my house. The Village Hall and Police Dept are in close proximity too.
I don’t have a basement so it has never flooded (and we had some bad flooding here a month ago). I have a one car garage that looks like a 2 car garage from the outside that the extra room serves as storage for me.
I have it on the market for $195,000. I don’t know where you’re at but empty lots in my neighborhood are going for $200-$300k. Zillow has it estimated at $280k or so. You can contact Pat for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
