Located on a quiet, treelined street in the West Ridge/Rogers Park neighborhood on Chicago’s far north side, this super-sized bungalow home combines old-school charm with a number of attractive updates.
Built in 1914, the five-bedroom structure has numerous architectural details from the 20th century Prairie School and Art & Crafts movements such as rich original woodwork, leaded glass windows, and a sturdy brick fireplace.
Updates include a bright, rehabbed kitchen with an attached family room as well as refreshed bathrooms. Partially finished, the home’s basement holds potential for future renovations. Thanks to its large 50 by 172-foot corner lot, the property also sports a wide rear deck overlooking a landscaped yard and patio.
This jumbo West Ridge bungalow listed today for $629,000—or roughly $163 per square foot. According to public records, it was last available in mid 2003 when it changed hands for $426,000.
