Established in 2003, West Ridge Bungalow Neighbors is a voluntary group of neighbors in Chicago who desire to assist each other in preserving and appreciating the homes in our neighborhood; educating each other and the broader public in the value and the story of our neighborhood; and providing resources to each other to improve the quality of our homes, enrich our lives and assure our neighborhood's future.

Ron and Marty hosted a fun tour of their home for WRBN last month, and I think we all suffered serious bungalow envy. To learn more about this great property for sale or to just steal some decorating tips courtesy of Ron and Marty, click here.
