While Chicago and its adjacent suburbs constructed more than 100,000 bungalows between 1915 and 1930, some examples stand out from the crowd—like this attractive four-bedroom located just outside of Chicago proper in Oak Park.
Built in 1929 toward the tail end of the bungalow boom, the historic residence features a tan brick facade with green trim, arched leaded glass windows, and an octagonal front room. Inside, the well-maintained home has plenty of original features including a decorative fireplace, wood trim, doors, plaster ceilings, and crown moldings.
There are two bedrooms on the first floor plus two more on the upper level. The property also boasts a redesigned kitchen that complements the historic character of the home, a partially finished lower level with a family room complete with a bar, and a matching detached garage.
Located at 1210 N. Grove Avenue, this picture-perfect Oak Park bungalow is currently listed for $669,000 by Laurie Shapiro of Gagliardo Realty Associates.
