This North Avondale Swiss Chalet Offers a European Alpine Escape in the Midwest


This century-old Swiss Chalet in North Avondale (3885 Dakota Ave.) offers a bit of European alpine whimsy in the Midwest.

The seven-bedroom, five-bathroom custom-built abode was commissioned by railroad executive Thomas Henry Noonan in 1902.

The home spans close to 6,000 square feet with stunning details throughout, including the striking foyer staircase, entryway tilework, period moldings and six fireplaces.

The house is hugged by a generously-sized patio where you can sit and gaze out at the neighborhood's other surrounding historic homes, as well as a paved patio, pond and two-car garage.

The home is priced at $559,000.

Reach out to listing agent Julia Packer Wesselkamper for more info.
