I'm a sucker for what I call the "jewel-box Tudor," a smaller-scale, beautifully-proportioned, finely-detailed older home in the English-Tudor style. And when I see one in a walkable in-town location I pay closer attention.
Apparently not everyone shares my tastes. The 3-bedroom, 3-bath home pictured above at 4 North Prospect
in Clarendon Hills has been on and off the market since July of 2009. It's currently listed for $649,993 after a recent price reduction.
The home is across the street from the Clarendon Hills Public Library, close to the Metra station, and a block from District 181's Prospect Elementary School and Prospect Park. High-school students attend the vaunted Hinsdale Central High School.
Chicago Bears fans need to be forewarned. The listing agent, Coldwell Banker's Mike McCurry, is a former Minnesota Viking and remains an avid Vikings fan.
I toured Clarendon Hills with McCurry a while back and found him a highly-informative guide to the community. You can see more of our drive around Clarendon Hills in this
