Galewood is a neighborhood in the northwest part of the city, just north of Oak Park. On the outer edges of Chicago is where you’ll find many perfectly preserved bungalows and workers cottages. The street where this Tudor home lives is no exception.

On North New England Avenue, there are other Tudor homes that flank both sides of the property, a small Georgian-style home across the way, and plenty of bungalows down the block. It’s charming and cozy—no hard glass and steel structures here.

The three-bedroom, two-bedroom home has gables that are asymmetrical, a classic hallmark of the Tudor style. The living room on the first floor features a contemporary fireplace alongside original crown molding and built-ins. The windows on the first floor have a diamond grill pattern and a stained glass emblem.

There’s tons of closet space, too. Built-in hallway cabinet storage, a mudroom off the kitchen, and large bedroom closets. The attic is partially finished and the lower-level acts as an office and guest room now.

Living here will mean you’ll be close to a Metra station, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home and Studio, and a forest preserve along the Desplaines River.

1649 N. New England Avenue is listed for $359,900 with Isaac Torres of Redfin.
