Welcome to 3110 W. Palmer Blvd.

Chicago, rich in culture and history, is best reflected in its various neighborhoods, each recounting a unique tale. One of the most storied was formed by design, and part of an overall plan called the "Emerald Necklace,"—a deliberate chain of now historic boulevards and parks that adorn the city with an unrivaled blend of architecture and nature. This particular jewel is located in the Logan Square Boulevards Historic District and part of the community of Palmer Square. Taking a front seat along its famous boulevard parkway, this landmark protected, Prairie style, brick 2-flat, built in 1909, has been featured on the Logan Square House & Garden Walk and proudly stands among other notable mansions of the period. Refurbished in the late 1980's, the home displays a reverence to the past in maintaining & restoring notable characteristics of the era while refining and upgrading to the standards of modern day living. A grand walnut newel & oak staircase, enriched by the colorful hues of an original stained glass window, accesses the 2nd floor owner's unit where all original woodwork has been stripped. A walkout porch with container gardening overlooks the park. The living room (parlor) features a decorative fireplace, original plaster moldings & handsome bay windows. A music room connects the LR and DR­—once a gathering spot after dining to enjoy the spinet and songs all around. The barreled ceiling was inherently acoustical while built-in shelves were designed for the music collection. The DR impresses with original lighting & mirrored corner hutches, a beamed ceiling & first-cut birch and oak wood trim. A modern kitchen features Portuguese painted tiles, granite counters, wood cabinets, breakfast nook & passage to the back deck overlooking the yard. Both BRs are ample & share a charming circa 1930's bathroom with an original stained glass window. Cedar closet hall storage. The first floor rental unit has a similar floorplan & runs separate electricity. A full high basement houses laundry. Gardens include a collection of more than 50 flowering perennials, herbs, small trees and shrubs intersected by a stone paver path leading to a 2 ½ -car garage. Nearby, an original horse hitching post remains, harkening the past once again. Today, transportation is fast & convenient; CTA Blue line and Kennedy Expy are but a few blocks away. A seasonal farmer's market, eclectic restaurants & offbeat shops all reflect the artistic nature of this eminently walkable neighborhood.
