Here we have a loud and proud new 5-bed/4.5 bath in Roscoe Village. At over 4,000 sf, with a sick 2-bedroom, booze-ready basement, it's got in-law potential. Or you can lock the children under the stairs and they won't much mind. The among the nicest aspects of this home are its dark hardwoods, coffered ceilings, and built-in shelving. There's also a walk-in closet with locker room-esque hanging hooks, a sparkling kitchen, and a mess of fireplaces. New to market and asking $1,275,000. ·Listing: 3322 N Leavitt St. [Zillow]

From the street, this East Village contempo looks nothing like the Roscoe house. Builders know what sells where. And interior preferences are honed through research. So what commonalities have we observed among new houses? Hmm... multiple fireplaces, dark hardwoods, big windows, built-in shelving, recessed lighting, finished basements, and architectural staircases, to name a few. Contrasting with the Roscoe house, the kitchen is more showy, the bathrooms are slick, and the architecture is resolutely modern, although still a formula for this neighborhood. In fact, these pics are of 1848 W Erie, being used to sell 1842 W Erie. That's some serious interchangeability. On the market three weeks and asking $869,900.
