Little Victorian with Gingerbread Trim

Historic Victorian with lots of white gingerbread trim to see today.  Isn’t she cute?  The listing does call this is Victorian and says it is a city landmark.

It’s an oldie, but goody built in 1853.

The vines growing on the stone exterior must be lovely to see in the summer.

Nevermind that, it’s winter here in Illinois like never before or again I hope.  Most houses have 5 times this much snow on them.  We have not had any melting like usual.

This is a house in Waukegan, IL up north from Chicago along Lake Michigan.  Waukegan is one of thee largest suburbs along the lake. Lovely to look at

Little Victorian has lots of gingerbread.  She looks good in the snow with her white trim.  A cute round fireplace flanked by fancy built-ins, large bay window and really nice updated modern kitchen.  Four bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths that look updated.  All for $169,900.  Let’s take a small peek. Little Victorian with White Gingerbread Trim I don’t like the flat top garage. Our neighbors had a flat top garage like this and they put a fake roof on and it now looks great!

Liv. rm 408 North Ave Waukegan IL

I would not change the fancy built-ins shelves flanking the fireplace.  Get a load of the that bay window and all the details.  Chandeliers are more popular than ever it seems.

Counting 5 bright and perfectly placed windows above the sink and counters.  Do you have a window above your sink to gaze out of while working in the kitchen?

That’s it for the Little Victorian with white gingerbread trim.  See the listing on Zillow.

Fun fact about Waukegan:

Famous radio and television comedian from the 50s and 60s Jack Benny grew up there and he loved his hometown.  He often joked about Waukegan in a loving way and is said to have put Waukegan on the map.

He was born on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 1894 as Benjamin Kubelsky.  If you never heard of him or saw his show this means diddly to you.

Here is Jack Benny in 1953 with Marilyn Monroe starting at the 15:45 mark.
