Portage Park is right along the city’s Bungalow Belt—an area encircling the city where that housing type was quickly built to accommodate Chicago’s rapid growth in the early 1900s. This home was built in 1919 and while the historic exterior remains, there’s nothing dated about the interior.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is on a wide lot which is typical of older houses. The renovation brought in dark wood floors, fresh coats of white paint, new cabinets and appliances, and a finished basement. The open kitchen, living room, dining room, and a bedroom are on the main floor. The master suite and a children’s bedroom are on the top floor of the bungalow. Then, the lower level features a comfortable tv room, a work area, and a playroom.
What’s particularly lovely is the outdoor space just off the kitchen. There’s a raised wooden deck decorated with planters which overlooks a grassy fenced-in backyard with lavender bushes, hydrangea flowers, and tall grasses.
