Burnside Home Inspection
Burnside is one of the 77 semi-official community areas of Chicago, Illinois, and is located on the city’s far south side. This area is also called by locals, “The Triangle”, as it is bordered by railroad tracks on every side; the Illinois Central on the west, the Rock Island on the south and the Nickel Plate Railroad (now Norfolk-Southern) on the east.
Originally considered part of Roseland and the Chatham communities, it was distinguished as one of the 77 Chicago community areas when the University of Chicago established its sociological map of Chicago communities. The area was mostly undeveloped swamp land north of Lake Calumet until after the American Civil War. The Illinois Central Railroad (ICRR) built the Burnside Station at 95th street and named it after Ambrose Burnside, a Civil War general and official of the ICRR.
It is highly recommended that you get a complete professional home inspection done on any home that you purchase in Burnside. The unique architecture and ornate Victorian homes may have surprises or complications that an experienced home inspector can identify in their home inspection report.
Burnside is also home to several Frank Loyd Right houses often featured in The Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House Chicago event hosted every fall.
If you are planning to attend an open house to give it a thorough inspection, don’t go in blind. There’s a whole lot you can find out about a property, either by checking it out yourself in person during the inspection or asking the on-site real estate agent (or both).
