This historic Chicago property has just been listed- 3634 N Avers in The Villa Historic District. Located between Irving Park and Addison near the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94), it’s a hop, skip, and jump for every important location in Chicago!
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!
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 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.

The Villa Historic District is one of my favorite Chicago Landmark neighborhoods – located in the Irving Park community, with easy access to I-90/94, it’s a reasonably priced group of houses on wide lots and boulevards.
