This 5-bedroom Victorian at 6084 N. Northcott in Old Norwood Park recently came on the market.
For those who don’t know, Norwood Park is in the Northwest part of Chicago, 11 miles from the Loop, with the Old Norwood Park part of the neighborhood located north of the Kennedy expressway.
From the Encyclopedia of Chicago:
Prior to Norwood Park’s incorporation in 1874, the village had a country setting far away from the bustle of the city. Early developers hoped to create a resort, taking advantage of area woodlands and hills. The subdivision departed from the typical grid pattern, and instead, like Frederick Law Olmsted’s Riverside, platted winding roads alternating with rectangular streets. One of the historic streets with old Victorian houses, the Circle, is shaped in an oval.
Built in 1886, the house is on a wider than normal 50×120 lot on the Circle.
Most of the lots in Old Norwood Park which are on the Circle are bigger than the standard Chicago lot.
It has a side drive with a 2-car garage.
The listing says it has updated electric.
The house also has central air and two porches.
It has the preferred layout for the bedrooms with 4 out of the 5 on the second floor and the 5th on the main level.
One of the bathrooms has a claw foot tub.
The kitchen has yellow cabinets, a white refrigerator and dishwasher, and a stainless steel stove.
The house has hardwood floors throughout and some crown molding along with 1 fireplace.
It is located just a few blocks from the Norwood train station and the listing says the local school is Norwood Elementary.
Does this house have it all for someone looking in this neighborhood?
