Property Description

In the rich history of Forest Glen, one of the oldest and prettiest neighborhoods in Chicago, this Victorian has seen many changes over the years. The lush green park across the street has matured, the bike trail has become reality, and trains have come and gone for the past 120 years. Built in 1900, this home has been owned by the same family more than half her life. Grand entry hall (12 x 11) sweeping staircase, carved oak newel post remind one of a bygone era. Enclosed front porch, French doors, fireplace, and handmade iron gates to match the balusters. The wood floors have been covered by avocado/retro carpeting all this time (as is, we have not seen them.) There are wild 1960's retro baths (built-ins that you've never seen!) cubbyholes, nooks, laundry chutes, massive walk-in closets. Kitchen is also from the 1960's, has plenty of cabinets. The high garage is a perfect charming companion for the house, and there is a poured concrete pond in the yard (not currently used, no water, fish or frogs...) in amazing condition. Newer boiler and water heater. Basement is low, and typical for a house this age. There is a fair amount of work...mostly cosmetic. Fireplace not used for many years. A faded beauty...ready for a glow up. What a house... it will speak to your soul! Walk to Mariano's, Metra. Check out the floor plans!
