Can't you just smell the turn-of-the-century craftsmanship? You can certainly see it—if only just barely with these dim images, but hey, that's part of the charm, right? With dark wood and Tiffany-style fixtures a plenty, and at $145,000 less than its initial listing price earlier this month, this 1912 Rogers Park mini-manse has a few things going for it besides its two-blocks-from-the-lakefront locale and three-car garage. Between those hand-carved Wright-esque walls, you'll find 10' ceilings, stained glass windows, and of course, the general "grandeur of a gone by era." Another by-gone era? 2004, when this place sold for just $780,000.
