The thing about neighborhoods and their turnarounds is that most people don't look far enough into the future. It's only after they happen to be driving through a neighborhood, see a lot of restoration that they realize the potential and often say "wow I wish I had bought a house when it was affordable".
The interior was converted long ago to three apartments but it looks like a 'lazy' conversion meaning they didn't change the rooms around. One unit is gutted to the studs so by doing this area first you would have a great place to "camp out" while you finish the rest of the house. Most of the woodwork appears intact (painted) and there are several fireplaces and lots of architectural details. This will really be a nice house after restoration and this part of Evanston is very close to Hyde Park people!!!!
