This week we're checking out the five least expensive single-family homes for sale in Green Lake. Boundaries are set by the realtors. We didn't include any property that's currently in contract. A friendly reminder: read the fine print, as some of these abodes have strings attached.
One of the cheapest houses near Green Lake is still over a half a million, $595,000; but that's the price of being in a neighborhood that isn't just walkable, but is also run-able, bike-able, stroll-able, swim-able, and people watch-able. The Craftsman bungalow was built in 1940, and now has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 1,274 square feet inside. The brick chimney, wood paneling, and bedroom upstairs are reminders of the era. Remodels, and renovations have modernized the rest. A good paint job helps. Outside it sits on a 3,005 square foot lot with tall neighbors on either side; signs of the other options in the neighborhood: apartments and condos.
The creamy color of the kitchen cabinets is either very trendy, or a sign that it's time to update the kitchen. It can be refreshing to see a kitchen that isn't all stainless steel appliances and granite counters. They aren't the original furnishings because 1926 houses didn't come with dishwashers, unless they were called servants. This is another bungalow, something the neighborhood should be known for, that has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in 2,040 square feet. That's larger than many bungalows and may be thanks to a bedroom downstairs. They're asking $575,000, which includes a fenced 6,298 square foot lot, and a detached garage that will work better for bicycles and smartcars than modern, standard American pickup trucks.
