Old Edgebrook is a delightfully suburban setting, yet it’s within Chicago city limits. There are fewer than 50 homes in the tiny enclave on the city’s northwest side that is surrounded by Cook County Forests Preserves’ Edgebrook Woods and the Edgebrook Golf Course. Old Edgebrook has a rich history, a landmark district that began in the late 1800s as a railroad suburb of large homes next to a golf course. That railroad stop, walkable from the neighborhood, still shuttles residents to their jobs in the city.
Those large homes, in a variety of styles, have been well-maintained, and one of them is this classic 3-story Colonial revival at 6270 N Louise Ave, newly listed for sale by Len Benefico of the Park Ridge office of Koenig & Strey.
This special home has 4 bedrooms and an office, hardwood floors, natural woodwork, French doors, a wood-burning fireplace, and a granite kitchen graced with an original butler pantry. Imagine sitting in your gazebo or deck taking in the forest views.
