garden court condominium, university city

Garden Court Condo is a condo complex of 8 buildings between 46th and 47th and Spruce and Pine Street in University City. This complex is a historic appartment building converted to condos in the 1990s.

This 116 Unit development has a pool, gym, garden courtyards and a lot of charm. As of today's date, it is a Fannie Mae approved development and hasn't proven to be a trouble financing in recent years.

While is has seemingly high condo fees, one must appreciate it includes heat. When one considers heating bills at home and the size of the residences it's a value. The one bedroom residences are approx 700-1000 sq ft, 2 bedrooms are approx 1100-1450 sq t and usully have a dedicated dining room. Three bedrooms (one as a maids room or small 3rd bedroom) are 1750-2100 sq ft, and four bedrooms are approx 2450 sqft. When a four bedroom is available, move quickly. They only come up once every few years.

While these residences rarely have central air, most people find them a very gracious lifestyle.

I have sold 7 in the last year. Most recently, I sold a210 a two bedroom two bath plus dining room of approx 1450 sq ft for a record $241,000. If I can help anyone learn more about this complex or help an owner to maximize the value of their sale, please call me 267-312-6221
