New and notable – Wilmette 4-bedroom under $500,000

Only four 4-bedroom homes are currently listed for sale for less than $500,000 east of Skokie Rd in Wilmette. Two of them have been on the market for less than 10 days, and one of them, 244 Vista Ct, just came on the market two days ago.

The 60s vintage split-level home has all four of its bedrooms on the second level, 2 ½ baths and a 2-car garage. It has hardwood floors throughout and high, sloping ceilings in the main living areas. The home is on a quiet cul-de-sac a few doors west of Centennial Park.

The home is listed with Coldwell Banker's Fleischman Home Team.

Home buyers familiarizing themselves with Wilmette for the first time may be surprised to learn that a 2-car garage is not a given in a 60s-vintage home in this price range. Many were built with no garages, 1-car garages or carports only. Quite a few homes have add-on garages in a style that's clearly dissonant with the home, and quite a few still have no garage.
