"Andersonville is a very desirable Chicago neighborhood that has an established dining district, fun nightlife and strong community base," Ms. Plotkin said. "The blocks are packed with wonderful old architecture and plenty of the classic brick walk-ups have been renovated to offer modern living spaces and amenities."
The goal of "Andersonville Tour of Homes" is to showcase the diverse selection of listings available in Andersonville and to invite buyers to come check out first-hand what the neighborhood has to offer its residents. Properties on the open house tour range from loft-style units to rehabbed condos, with prices from $243,900 to $429,900. Several examples of the area's common courtyard residential buildings and brick three-flats will also be represented on Sunday's open house roster.
The neighborhood of Andersonville is approximately 5 miles north of Chicago's downtown Loop. Its boundaries are Foster Avenue to the south, Bryn Mawr to the north, Ravenswood Avenue to the west, and Glenwood Avenue to the east. The main thoroughfare is Clark Street, which houses dozens of popular restaurants, bars and shops. Andersonville is known for its Swedish heritage and is where the Swedish American Center Museum is located. Annual festivals include Midsommarfest, Andersonville Arts Weekend, and St. Morten's Gos Day (a neighborhood tradition to ring in the holiday season).
"The unit at 1620 W. Edgewater is a half-block from Clark Street and a short walk or bike ride from the lakefront," said Ms. Plotkin. "I think anyone who comes to the Andersonville Tour of Homes this Sunday is going to be impressed by the vibrancy of this area and the amount of home you get for the price in such a sought-after part of town."
All of the real estate featured in "Andersonville Tour of Homes" are attached properties with one- to three-bedroom layouts. Dream Town has one listing in the tour, represented by Pamela Plotkin. For more information, contact Ms. Plotkin at www.dreamtown.com/agents/pamela-plotkin.html
