I’m really excited about my new listing at 5951 W Hermitage Avenue, a beautifully restored bungalow in Andersonville. It is a classic Chicago bungalow, made of brick with original woodwork and hardwood floors throughout, featuring a lovely fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases in the living room.
I fell in love with this house the moment I walked in the door. And everyone else seems to feel the same way, as it’s only been on the market for two days and I’ve already had four showings! The owners have kept it their house in perfect shape, as you can see here from the photos. In addition to renovating the kitchen and putting in a charming breakfast nook that looks out over the backyard, they completely finished the basement, adding a rec room, a media room, a second kitchen, a full bath and an office.
The house is very livable, with two bedrooms and a den on the main floor, a spacious kitchen, a separate dining room, and plenty of storage space. And the backyard is a delight, with a large deck overlooking a landscaped grove of trees and flowers.
Most Chicago bungalows were built several miles west of the lake, in a bungalow belt that stretches through neighborhoods like Jefferson Park and Portage Park. There aren’t too many bungalows in Andersonville or Edgewater, but Hermitage Avenue is a little treasure trove for bungalow lovers. It’s a quiet tree-lined street full of classic bungalows — just a stone’s throw from Clark Street and all of Andersonville’s great shops and restaurants.
