Location is one thing that cannot be changed when buying real estate, and this home at 699 Chidester Ave. listed at $399,000, is only a few blocks away from Lake Ellyn.
The three-bedroom, two-bath home was built in 1951 and appears to have good bones, but could use some updating. The listing suggests it could also be scraped for a new home to be built. It is being sold as is.
With hardwood floors, plaster walls and Kohler fixtures, the home could be a good first home for a family. The home, which is 1,275 square feet, features fireplaces, central air, a basement, a wooded yard and a two-car garage.
