Landmark Victorian Home for Sale in the Historic Old Edgebrook District of Chicago
The Victorian home built in 1891 in the Historic Old Edgebrook District is now up for sale at a cost of $745,000.

The neighborhood in the Forest Glen Community area is found between Central and Devon Avenues.

The home itself is one of the original residences in the area and is filled with stained glass windows, original pocket doors, and plenty of exquisite details as per Victorian standards. The kitchen is set up with custom Amish cabinets, while the bathroom has undergone full renovation. The fireplace is sure to keep you nice and toasty, and on summer nights, enjoy the wrap-around porch with a glass of lemonade. With four bedrooms on the second floor, 4 baths and 2 full baths, there is ample room for a single family, plus guests. Enjoy a third level, featuring a spacious, bonus room that you can turn into anything you’d like from an office to a play room. The windows offer plenty of natural sunlight and views of the unchallenged scenic woods of Chicago. The expansive garden and manicured lawn make this Victorian home all the more attractive.
