We love the homes in Sherwood Forest. The often Tudor-style homes are full of character and sit on big lots. They’re also located near Palmer Woods, the University District, Palmer Park, and the Avenue of Fashion. This newer listing may not have the best photos, but we can tell that much of the original detail remains. The listing says it’s been owned by the same family for over 40 years, and now it’s up for sale for $399,900.
We’re impressed with the soaring wood beams in the living and dining rooms, plus the built-ins located in the den. The dining room almost feels like a lodge, and the house is full of archways and coved ceilings. Unfortunately, no photos of the kitchen or bathrooms. But if you need a safe for storage, this house has one. It’s 3,600 square feet, with five bedrooms, three full and two half baths, and central air.
