Situated on a quiet tree-lined street in the Beverly neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, this four-bedroom English revival style home designed by notable local architect Murray Hetherington offers lots to like. Though renovated in 2014, much of the home’s original 1930 craftsman details have remained intact while the kitchen, three-and-a-half baths, and other mechanical systems have been brought up to date. Dark hardwood floors, rounded archways, and a stone-lined peaked fireplace further ratchet up the charm factor.
While many listings across Chicago proudly boast about the inclusion of any sort of yard space, this property’s landscaped lot literally abuts the Cook County Forest Preserve’s 257-acre Dan Ryan Woods. The 4,000 square foot, family-friendly home also features a finished basement and is close to the Rock Island Metra line, connecting to the heart of downtown. New to the market, this whimsical early 20th Century home is seeking $845,000.
