House of the Day #22: 9859 S. Van Vlissingen Road

Jeffery Manor, in the northern section of the South Deering Community Area, was developed as a residential area largely after the second World War. This split-level home along Van Vlissingen Road, a diagonal street that defines the neighborhood's western edge, was built in 1954. The expansive lawn, topiary shrubs, and midcentury modern style of construction are all quite similar to suburbs built up at around the same time. Adding to the suburban feel, there is a prairie and wetland restoration area to the immediate west. [blogged]
