Autumn colors on North Greenview Avenue in Graceland West, Chicago

After showing one of my listings in the Graceland West neighborhood of Chicago yesterday, I took the opportunity to get a few autumn photos of the single family homes you will find. There are many stately manors that line North Greenview from West Irving Park Road to West Montrose. Not to be outdone, several more modest stucco and frame bungalows snuggle up to their street mates. We can even find some new construction in progress.

The 4 blocks of Greenview here tend to have the larger lots, but the east west streets are lined with some terrific homes as well. On those blocks, you will also see a welcomed mix of attractive three to six-flat buildings in between North Southport and North Greenview. Most have been converted to condos and are individually owned by the occupants.

When looking for a personal home, I prefer a mid-century modern or prairie style design.
