You’ve often heard the phrase “if these walls could talk”. Oh how I wish it were true of these older Brookside homes! This new listing in Armour HIlls still has much of it’s original charm and detail, yet it can easily be updated to incorporate a more open kitchen and a true master bath for the next owner. I would love to know the backstory of each person who lived in this house!
Built in 1925, this two story home greets you with a large front porch–a great spot to spend some time chatting with the friendly neighbors or relaxing with a cocktail after work. Inside you’ll find hardwood floors and unpainted wood trim detailing. It is a center hall floor plan, with a spacious living room and dining room, plus half bath. The kitchen has some of the original cabinets (still useful and so charming!) and a cozy breakfast room with built-ins.
Upstairs are three bedrooms and a full bath; the master bedroom is large enough to add another full bath to make a master suite. There is a full basement, and half of it is finished, including two large closets, and another shower/toilet in the basement area.
The backyard is fenced with a deck, a private drive and a two car garage, plus a newer roof. The home is close to the Trolley Track Trail, Brookside shops, the MAX bus route and Arbor Villa Park. Located at 25 E 68 Terrace and offered at $269,500–contact me or visit my website for more details.
