Villa Historic District – 3634 N Avers

3634 N Avers

3634 N Avers


This gorgeous Craftsman Bungalow home is for sale in The Villa Historic District – located in Chicago’s Irving Park neighborhood.

Just as the The Villa Historic District Neighborhood is nestled near the Addison exit on the Kennedy Expy, the home’s tucked behind lush landscaping – people driving by won’t imagine the vintage architectural treasure that lies within!

3634 N Avers The VIlla Historic DIstrict

Like many homes in The Villa, 3634 N Avers sits on a double lot – 50′ wide. The home itself is a larger footprint than a typical bungalow floor plan (see brochure for details). The birch and oak woodwork is original, and where previously painted, it’s been restored to its former glory by the current owners (the 4th stewards of the property since being built in 1907). The original bookcase spans the Living Room’s width, and flanks a center fireplace. The original vintage stained glass with tulip motif completes this stunning focal point. Two original 12 light-panel French Doors lead to the sun room which overlooks the front yard, parkway, and idyllic neighborhood vistas.

3634 N Avers Kitchen

3634 N Avers has a newer chef’s kitchen – top of the line appliances, granite, slate, and custom cabinets. There are still cosmetic upgrades that could be done to the home, and the new owners could use home improvement expenditures to qualify for the property tax freeze, available to qualifying homes in historic districts such as The Villa. (Contact Anne Rossley for more information)
