Montclare Home Inspection
Montclare is one of 77 officially designated community areas of the city of Chicago, Illinois. Montclare also is a neighborhood located on the Northwest Side of the city.
William Sayre bought the land that would become Montclare at a Jefferson Township land sale. The 1870s brought the railroad and a housing development. The developers named the area Montclare, after Montclare, New Jersey. In 1889, the area was annexed into Chicago with the rest of Jefferson Township. At the time of annexation, the rural, agricultural area had fourteen houses and 120 residents. In 1912, the Grand Avenue streetcar was extended to the area and Tudor houses were built in response. The area continued to be relatively undeveloped during this period.
During the latter half of the twentieth century, the area saw an increase in brick bungalows and residents attracted by the suburban character of the area.
The area is bordered by Harlem Avenue on the west, Belmont Avenue on the north and railroad tracks to both the south and east. These railroad tracks include those that service the area via the Milwaukee District/West Line at Mont Clare station.
Consistent with the area’s history the majority of land use in the area is single family residential and transportation with acreage of 250 acres and 193 acres respectively. Other land uses include 63 acres of multi family residential, 55 acres of commercial development, 6 acres of mixed use development, 19 acres of industrial development, 29 acres of institutional development and 11 acres of open space.

It is highly recommended that you get a complete professional home inspection done on any home that you purchase in Montclare. The unique architecture and ornate Victorian homes may have surprises or complications that an experienced home inspector can identify in their home inspection report.
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).
