Elmhurst’s Crescent Park neighborhood is bounded on the west by Poplar Ave, on the north by St Charles Rd, on the east by I-290 and on the south by the Illinois Prairie Path. A small triangular park, Crescent Park, is at the center of the neighborhood, which has gently curving streets lined with mature trees and a slightly sloping topography. Wild Meadows Park and Washington Park lie along the southern and eastern edges of the area.
According to the Elmhurst Historical Museum, Crescent Park was originally a 128-acre farm and was once platted as a cemetery before being sold to a developer who envisioned it as the “most exclusive residence district” in Chicago’s western suburbs.
A 6-bedroom, 5 ½ bath home at 511 S Parkview in Crescent Park is currently for sale at $1,299,000 after a recent price reduction. The home features a number of unusual details, and a thoughtful layout – as you’d expect in a home built by a builder for his own residence.
