North Park Real Estate | Lake Effect Real Estate Has 5938 N Drake Under Contract!
Chicago-based Lake Effect Real Estate has another listing under contract in Chicago’s North Park neighborhood. REALTOR Kim Kerbis is again beating average market times in Chicago real estate with effective marketing and maximum exposure.
This charming 1937 English Tudor is on a wide 30' x 125' lot in the North Park community of Chicago. Surrounded by parks, this three bedroom, two and a half bath home has hardwood flooring throughout, and has been updated through the years. Recent updates include new plumbing, updated electric service, central air, new windows and roof, and updated kitchen and baths. The yard is professionally landscaped and is only one block from nearby Peterson Park. Close to North Park University and Northeastern Illinois University, this North Park home offers a neighborhood feel, with plenty of dining and entertainment options.
The North Park community is one of the 77 defined community areas within the City of Chicago. It has its history built in Swedish immigrants, but today, North Park has been adopted by American newcomers. The area is primarily residential, and the housing inventory is mostly single-family homes with small to mid-size condo and apartment buildings mixed in. Settled between Foster Avenue on the south and Devon Avenue on the north, North Park is home to both Northeastern Illinois University and North Park University. The Swedish heritage in the community comes out in restaurants such as Tre Kronor, known for its Swedish pancakes, sausage, and the use of dill in their recipes. North Park also features the Bohemian National Cemetery, where the man who rented to Mrs. O’Leary (and her cow) is buried, as well as Peterson and Hollywood Parks which are both woodsy escapes on the North Side.
