Dating from the mid-to late-1800′s, “Painted Ladies” are Victorian homes highlighted by bright color schemes, with contrasting colors to define architectural details. Oak Park has more than its share of painted ladies including this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath Victorian near the central business district.
This home at 913 South Blvd was built in 1865 and has an equally impressive interior. Marvel at the etched glass and custom moldings from the grand-entrance staircase. Zoned heat and air conditioning are among many 21st century updates in the home’s recent rehab.
This Painted Lady is close to the Oak Park Metra station and the CTA’s Harlem Green Line stop, making it a quick and easy trip to downtown Chicago. And the South Blvd location puts you close to many of Oak Park ‘s shops and markets, international restaurants, houses of worship and the Oak Park Public Library. Green space at Mills Park and summer concerts at Scoville Park are both within walking distance.
