You would never guess this home sits next to the Kennedy Expressway about fifteen minutes outside of downtown Chicago. Don't let that little factoid detour you because if you lived here you would instantly forget where you were and feel like you were in the middle of nowhere.

If you want ultimate privacy and escape with strategically placed greenery, this home 15-minutes away from downtown Chicago is your dream. At first glance, this hidden home may not appear as a paradise but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? Also, save the judgment until after you peek inside this home on North Harding Avenue in The VIlla District neighborhood.

The Villa District is known for its homes built with detail in line with Arts & Crafts as well as Prairie School architectural styles. - (Realtor.com)

This 3-bedroom 3-bathroom home sits on an oversized lot with a patio, a heated pool, and so much greenery you'll feel like you're in another part of the world. The interior decoration is something else. The best way I can describe it is to compare the rooms the "find the hidden objects" games online. You might agree.

The 1,869 square foot home will run you $495,000. A small price to pay for privacy you've probably never experienced. HERE's the listing.
