Tour a Bridgeport retreat on three tree-shaded lots

The current owners bought this Bridgeport home over 20 years ago after seeing an ad in the Chicago Reader that said “your dream north side house might be on the south side at one-third the price.” Today you might have to revise that ratio to ¼ or 1/5th the price.

In the sponsored video Wally, one of the owners, talks about the neighborhood and the character-rich home on three beautifully landscaped lots that he’s lived in for the past 23 years. The home’s highlights include a 5-year old addition, a working photography studio and a large tree-top deck. The home has an elevator and is fully handicapped-accessible.

According to Wally “I can walk to almost anything I need.” There’s a corner grocery that serves up homemade Italian sausage, and a corner bar that Wally doesn’t patronize but that he views as a good, quiet neighbor.

The home, at 3222 S Normal, is currently listed for sale with Prudential Rubloff’s Greg Viti for $979,000.
