While many suburban downtowns have been struggling for years and searching for ways to reinvent themselves, downtown Elmhurst has been thriving.
The City Centre website for downtown Elmhurst even serves up a parking map for visitors who may find themselves baffled by the number of visitors to the sheer variety of shopping, dining and entertainment options in the compact area near the Metra station.
If you're unfamiliar with downtown Elmhurst you'll be shocked to learn that there are nearly 50 food and dining establishments within a few blocks walk of the Metra station.
That urban experience in a suburb is just one of Elmhurst's many attractions, but it's of particular relevance to the townhome that you can tour in the above video, which was sponsored by Koenig & Strey's Gracik Makinney Group.
A broad lawn and serendipitous path mark the approach to the 4-bedroom, 3 ½ bath 2,435 square foot townhome on a 25 x 125 parcel at 234 N Addison Ave. The architect's success in crafting a more interesting space within the standard townhome footprint is evident from the second you enter the home and experience one of the soaring two-story spaces that punctuate its volume. But why go on in this vein describing what you can see?
The home is listed for sale at $615,000 and is open Sunday, February 19, from 2 to 4 pm.
