3232 W Victoria Street
Custom built in early in the depression, this unique, English Tudor Arts and Crafts home, with a complex mansard roof and several dormered windows has been lovingly maintained by the same family for over 30 years. Located on a quiet tree lined block in the Hollywood Park neighborhood, the oversized, irregular lot (60' frontage and 32' at the alley, provides lots of green space. The gracious floorplan features "miles" of burnished hardwood floors with door after handcrafted door echoing a two-tone stain pattern moving throughout the house. The living room features French windows and a woodburning fireplace. High cove ceilings with a broad archway opening into the dining room lead through a swinging door into the kitchen, pantry, breakfast room and a multi-purpose room with windows overlooking the perennial garden. There is also a powder room on this level. Three large bedrooms, a bath and cedar closet complete the second floor. There is a small access panel in the upstairs hall closet to an attic with high wood ceilings. Bring your architect to chat about the possibilities for expanding into this great space. The lower level is finished with bleached knotty pine walls. It has a large, comfortable family room with many built-ins, laundry, full bath, cedar closet and abundant storage in the mechanical room, including a carpenter's "shop" for home projects. The back yard is a gardener's delight. In addition to the patio, you'll find a perennial wildflower garden, an archway of raspberries, roses against the detached two car garage, a hedge of lilacs and dogwood along the East side and a large beautiful, non-fruiting Mulberry tree. Almost equidistant to Lake Shore Drive and the expressway entrance on Peterson. The neighborhood is bounded by the parks, the Chicago River is a block to the east with miles of bike and hiking trails. The former Chicago Northside Tuberculosis Sanitarium to the west is now a restored multi-use public park replete with art deco buildings, walking trails and a nature center. Here is where the local Farmer's Market has found a home and is just a short walk from the house.
