Gunderson Houses In Oak Park Real Estate

by The Real Estate Buyers

When the Gunderson Brothers built houses in Oak Park more than one hundred years ago, they had families in mind: lots of spacious bedrooms and dining and living spaces for get-togethers and gatherings.  The Gundersons wanted the best quality and hired an architect, Frank Osborn De Money to design the homes. They even brought craftsmen from Norway to build the houses. These were going to be homes that were comfortable and built to last. Several hundred houses in the Prairie-style dotted Oak Park properties and are now designated as Oak Park’s third Historic District.  The coordinates of the district are Madison Street to Harrison Avenue, and from the east side of East Avenue to the west side of Ridgeland Avenue. Many of these houses retain the built-in carpentry, fine woodwork, built in glasswork, and third floors that are easy to convert into living spaces.
