1891 Victorian: Queen Anne

423 Summit Ave
West Chicago, Illinois

Featured Home At The West Chicago Historic Museum - And Rightfully So!

It’s a work of art! You can’t imagine the craftsmanship and detail of this home without physically seeing it! This home has had only four owners in its history, and each one has played an integral role in the home’s meticulous maintenance and restoration. Period updates throughout. From the 10” base moldings and 5 panel doors, to the original quarter-sawn oak floors and solid pocket doors, to the wood paneling, operable transoms and built-in cabinetry with elaborate detailing, this home drips with quality and charm. Two fireplaces, third floor bonus room equipped for a media area, huge detached garage with potting shed, wrap around porch with screened in sitting area, lots of mature trees and landscaping in the oversized fenced yard..a wonderfully unique blend of old world charm and modern convenience. This home is the featured home at the historic museum in West Chicago, and rightfully so. Set on a private lot on a dead end street yet only three blocks to the train and a short stroll to downtown West Chicago, library, and parks. What a place to call home!
