Our own Houses of Windsor: West Windsor Avenue in Lincoln Square

With all the talk about Prince William, Kate Middleton and the House of Windsor, I thought I'd take a look at our own Windsor Avenue. Here's a gorgeous corner residence at West Windsor and North Hamilton in Chicago.

Here's a few photos of a "short" one block section of West Windsor in Lincoln Square. It's easy to miss; the street doesn't continue until North Sheridan Road by the lake in Uptown to the east or North Rockwell Street to the west in Albany Park. However, the homes are rather distinct with some being quite grand.

Turrets are a reoccurring theme on this little block of Windsor between North Hamilton Avenue and North Leavitt Street.

The block also has a touch of newer construction represented here at the corner of Windsor and Leavitt.

Then, there are a handful of old homes transplanted from a Bavarian village.

Ah, and here's a traditional and representative beauty for the neighborhood with an inviting front porch on Windsor.

Speaking of Royal riches, 2173 W Windsor, a newer construction single family home built in 2000 on a 37ft X 122ft lot, is currently under contract at $1,249,500.
