Of course a French Provincial home on Ponchartrain Boulevard would catch my eye the week of Mardis Gras. This 2,690 square-foot home at 6551 N Ponchartrain Blvd in Wildwood has been on the market since June, but popped up in my daily search for new listings after being delisted and immediately relisted sometime yesterday, at a price of $659,000.
The home, built in 1939, has four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a side drive leading to a two-car garage, a kitchen with new maple cabinets and granite countertops, hardwood floors, and two fireplaces. The home is just north of the forest preserve and the Edgebrook Golf Course, and four-tenths of a mile from the Edgebrook Metra station.
2009 taxes are $9,240.
