The cul-de-sac block of North Cleveland Avenue b/w Eugenie and Menomonee has grand old gems, ostentatious new builds, and mismatched townhouse tracts. One of the spiffier properties, newly listed for $1.695M, is a 2001 single-fam infill with a classic facade and airy, super-sized interiors. The big to-do is the home's architectural staircase, jumbo windows, vaulted top-floor master suite with skylights, and its three terraces. Finer details should be acknowledged, too: the compact and somewhat hidden kitchen, the fireplaces and built in shelving, stained glass, and basement rec room. The 4,150-square-foot five-bed sold in 2005 for $1.55M, so it's very possible it'll go for a loss once the market manhandles it. Catch the open house this Sunday, 11-1.
