If you've no car, you'll be taking the Metra to visit this elegant 4-bed Victorian. Re-listed after a short hiatus, this newly renovated house belongs the the tangle of concentric streets that form Old Norwood Park. One of the city's oldest structures is nearby, the Noble-Seymour-Crippen House, built in 1833 and expanded in the 1860s. As for the item at hand, the renovation is of the historically sensitive sort. In other words, there's lots of decorative stuff. Also, observe the funny array of built-in stands and rails in the living room and up in the master bedroom, some of which may have to do with the heating system. Or maybe that's where you're supposed to strike your ballet poses. One of the home's most endearing features is surely the master bed's cathedral ceiling, composed of a pale, weathered wood. Additional attic space shares in its allure. The 50x200 lot has ample room for a hot tub and pond, which is rumored to be somewhere within the landscaped pasture of a backyard. The ask? $649K.
