105 South Third Street, Champaign

 

Available for the first time in 72 years! This fascinating "mini-mansion" in CampTown boasts over 1800 square feet of space, with two bedrooms and a walk-in closet (which could be a third upstairs bedroom), a parlor, a family room which could be used as a fourth bedroom, plus a large living room. The just-remodeled kitchen has a dining area, new lighting, flooring, cabinets, and appliances including a dishwasher and a stacked washer/dryer. The newly remodeled downstairs bathroom has a shower, the upstairs bathroom has new flooring, paint, fixtures, and the original claw-foot bathtub! And 105 South Third Street offers some fantastic features not often found on campus, like a wrap-around front porch, original Victorian "gingerbread" trim, hardwood floors, and 19th century woodwork. 105 South Third also has a brand new roof, new electrical service, and a high-efficiency furnace and air conditioner.

  

But the best thing about this home is that the location is absolutely perfect! It's just 4 blocks west of the Beckman Institute and the University of Illinois Engineering campus, and it's four blocks east of Downtown, Champaign with its restaurants, cafes, shopping, and nightlife. The just-completed Scott Park/Second Street Basin, with landscaped recreation areas, fountains, and popular walking trails, is a block to the southwest.  The 10,000 sq ft County Market supermarket is three blocks south. Walkscore.com rates 105 South Third a "Very Walkable" 85 out of 100 and says "Most errands can be accomplished on foot".

   

The property comes with a large driveway in back, easily capable of holding two vehicles. Champaign's award-winning CUMTD bus line (free to U of I students, faculty, and staff!) picks up a block south and drops off at the U of I Quad about every five minutes Monday through Sunday.

Rent is $1350 per month and includes water, garbage, and sewer/sanitary. For additional information or to schedule a private showing, contact us at 217-649-0761 or email info@theelectrumgroup.com
