Long before he was a household name because of Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin had just finished graduate school at Northwestern and was living with a rotating cast of characters in a 3-bedroom apartment in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood. Now, that same unit that the famous author once paid $150/month for is being sold as a refurbished condo for just under $355k. The property has been remarkably well maintained over the years and includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a parking space. The woodwork and overall layout is the same, but it has new windows, light fixtures, an outdoor deck, kitchen, laundry room and second bedroom. With plenty of exposed wood, long hallways, pedestal sinks, clawfoot tubs and a desirable neighborhood, this is one property worth investing in–and that’s before you consider the fact that Martin lived their and the realtor is throwing a themed open house this weekend.
