Property description

This 3 story townhome is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood on the west side of Chicago. You are surrounded by teachers, cops and firefighters who have to live in the city, but want a quiet oasis.
The clean and comfortable Metra commuter train is 3 blocks away. You'll be downtown Chicago in 15 minutes!
Oak Park is a five minute drive. Enjoy Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio, charming shops, great restaurants, the Ernest Hemingway Museum and more.
