UPDATE:  The owner decided not to sell and rented it out instead.  If you're interested in Orland Park real estate, whether residential or commercial, give Judy Orr a call at 708-536-8200.

Yunker school house orland parkThis is your chance to own a building that is part of Orland Park's history.  This is the original Yunker Schoolhouse built in 1910 and was part of School District 134.  It was closed in 1957 and was used for storage.  The current owner purchased it in 1987.  It is now an out building at a strip mall located on a corner with a stoplight at 143rd & Wolf Rd.  This location offers great visibility and plenty of parking.  The cable tower behind the building is not conveying.

It's much larger inside than it appears from the exterior.  It has a main level area with a large reception room and two offices.  But there is also an upper level and a partial, finished basement with a kitchenette and a bathroom with a shower.

The owner has lovingly refurbished the building and added beautiful etched art glass in the entrance vestibule.  Gorgeous oak stairs spiral to the upper level.  The main level has original hardwood floors.  The owner found the original school bell at a different location.  There is a corner of the reception area of the main level with a little history area of the school house.

We had an interested buyer that was worried about the widening of 143rd St. as the building  already sits close to the busy street.  Although it is currently being rented out (the main floor client will be leaving soon), it would be a wonderful spot for a small business such as an attorney's office, real estate, CPA, antiques, clothing, etc.
