House of the Week: Ravenswood Nineteenth Century stucco Queen Anne with Craftsman twist

On an over sized 50 x 164 Chicago lot, 4436 N Hermitage is a stunner among the many beautiful homes of this Ravenswood block. The home has changed hands a few times in the last 20 years. In 1991 it sold for $200,000. In 1996 it was purchased again for $355,000 with some updates such as central air and finish work. Then is 2004 the current owners purchased the fully renovated home for $1,450,000.

Built in the 1880s (according to the MLS records) among many grand Victorian style homes, this home caught our eye due to the bolder Craftsman style lines and strong front porch pillars. There may have been modifications over the years such as the stucco facade and front porch... if so, well done! The landscaping is simply a pleasure rolling along the 50 foot wide lot and well appreciated in the fall months. You know your in good shape when the side of the home looks almost better than the front!

Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing or selling a Ravenswood or other North Side Chicago neighborhood single family home.
