If one of your goals for 2019 is to become a real estate investor, you could probably not do much better than the charming duplex nestled between Highland Park and Oak Lawn — and since it’s well under $1 million and already leased, it’s probably one of the easier ways to enter the market.
Located at 3921 Hawthorne Ave., this upstairs/downstairs duplex was built in 1931 — meaning it has loads of character and charm. It’s also been well-maintained and has had many upgrades and updates throughout the property.
Each unit has two bedrooms and two full baths. Gleaming hardwoods throughout both units also make the homes feel light and bright, and attention has been paid to the finishes as well — this is no ordinary rental property.
The floorplans upstairs and downstairs provide open living and dining areas, with kitchens that are tucked back for the cooks that prefer company not see the dirty pots and pans at the dinner party.
A large shared landscaped backyard leads to a two-car garage, and there is an additional two-car carport.
The property is priced at $899,000, and is listed by Laura Michelle and Ryan Streiff with Dave-Perry Miller Real Estate.
