Property Description

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! MOTIVATED SELLER! FOR SALE IS THE treasured home of Norman Kraus, better known to Mopar fans worldwide as Mr. Norm, the world-famous owner of Grand Spaulding Dodge in Chicago, and the championship winning Top Fuel Funny Car team he raced and sponsored during the muscle car era and beyond. There is not another home like it, nor one with the incredible history that surrounds it. This is once in a lifetime opportunity. First time for sale since it was built. Classic, 1960's custom-built pebble beach ranch in the heart of a quiet, very desirable area within walking distance of Northbrook Court Mall.

The house has an open floor plan, light and bright; 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms; French sliding doors in most of the rooms with direct access to the swimming pool; family room combined with dining room; living room with dual fireplace - wood and gas burning; large kitchen with eating area; office - the place where Mr. Norm spent most of his life after 1964, the same year he formed The First Grand Spaulding Dodge racing team; master bedroom with full master bath and walk in closet with plenty of storage; laundry and large storage room. There are two separate heating and cooling zones supported by two mechanical rooms providing efficiency. In addition, the house has a large patio in the backyard with a swimming pool and unique landscaping. All of this is on a sizable lot of 0.57 acre.
