North Park Home Inspection
North Park is bordered by the North Shore Channel on the east, the Chicago River’s North Branch and Foster Avenue on the south, Cicero Avenue on the west (except for the section in the northwest corner, north of Bryn Mawr Avenue, which is part of the Sauganash neighborhood) and Devon Avenue on the north.
Originally a Swedish community and later a stronghold of Orthodox Jews, it more recently has been adopted by newer American immigrants, from Latinos to Middle Easterners, Koreans and Central Europeans (Poles). It is part of the 60625 and 60659 zip codes.
North Park received its name from North Park University that built the Old Main building in 1894 along Foster Avenue west of Kedzie, on the north side of the river. Further north is the campus of Northeastern Illinois University, which opened in 1961. Other major land uses include two large cemeteries, LaBagh Woods Forest Preserve, Peterson Pulaski Industrial Park, and North Park Village, which includes housing, park facilities, and a nature center.
The Good Counsel Province of the Polish Felician Sisters is headquartered in this neighborhood, as is Chicago’s PBS station, WTTW, in the Chicago Production Center. Two universities – North Park University and Northeastern Illinois University – and a Yeshiva make for concentrated educational resources. The closest Chicago Transit Authority “L” train stop is the Kimball terminal on the Brown Line.
North Park is in Jefferson Township, which was annexed into Chicago in 1889.
It is highly recommended that you get a complete professional home inspection done on any home that you purchase in North Park. 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).
We have inspected many homes in the North Park community, and have many years of experience with the homes in the neighborhood! Call us today to schedule a North Park home inspection.

I had the opportunity to have Charles inspect my 106 year old home in Chicago. Charles was very knowledgeable about the different systems, masonry, and features or historic homes. He is realistic and helps explain why something is good or bad in the home. I would highly recommend Charles for any home inspection needs..
Thank you Greg. I did enjoy taking a long look at your home. I was a pleasure looking at that history.
