Home sales along Legion Park in Lincoln Square, West Ridge

A charming (Mission style?) custom home found along North Virgina Avenue backing up to Legion Park in the West Ridge community area of Chicago. All photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty.
From time to time I like to point out unique areas of the city to live.  The 5200 - 6000 blocks of North Virgina are full of interesting, vintage custom homes. I place a premium on the aesthetic personally and parks often enhance the desirability of a home... especially backing up to a 50 acre Legion Park with paths and play-lots along the river.  The location is "near enough" to very popular Lincoln Square and close to great resources like North Park University and Northeastern Illinois University.

Seriously attractive Tudors and cottages near Legion Park in Lincoln Square and West Ridge community areas.

Four single family homes backing up to the park have sold during that time. Of these four the lowest priced home near the end of the park at 5918 N Virginia Ave , Chicago, Illinois 60659 sold as a foreclosure for $294,000.

North Virginia Avenue from Foster to Peterson stretches the far northwest of Lincoln Square and southeaster portion of West Ridge. The Budlong Woods neighborhood is tucked in this area.
Lucky homeowners on Legion Park look out over the acres of trees and park paths from their backyards.

I spent last Saturday in Legion Park with my son's baseball team practicing... in February!
