39 Carmel St, Clarendon Heights

1,097 square foot 1 bedroom 2 bath renovated cottage plus separate studio built around 1900. Sold for $1.8 million in 2016. Though $195K under asking, the selling price still reflects a whopping 1,641 per square foot - for a house with a somewhat unfinished detached 2nd bedroom.

At first glance, I loved this property, but when I started thinking about the impracticality of the studio-as-bedroom concept, I was much less enamored.

Until and unless another full bathroom is added which is unlikely due to City restrictions, I like the studio-as-studio or office concept.

Brrr! Baby it's cold outside and I have to pee!!

Previously sold for $1.2 million in 2006.

Rear garden backs up to Tank Hill
Broker Babble: In a City where people are crammed in like sardines, where can you live to experience peace and serenity? At 39 Carmel, that's where! Backing up to Tank Hill Park you will experience unparalleled privacy at this charming early-1900's home. The main house boasts high ceilings, plenty of character, 1 bedroom and 2 full baths. The kitchen is outfitted w/top-end appliances, including a glass-door SubZero fridge, gas Viking range w/ hood and stainless dishwasher. A breakfast nook leads to the exquisite back yard through a set of French doors. In the back yard you will find a detached (finished) building ready for a 2nd bedroom, guests, or your hobby of choice. Fresh air, blooming perennials, and views of nature escort you to a different place.
