Built in 1914 in the Highlands area of the Windy City’s Edgewater neighborhood, this cottage-like American Craftsman corner bungalow is a wonderful example of early 20th century quintessential Chicago vernacular architecture. The four-bedroom, two-bathroom brick home retains much of its original millwork, hardwood floors, stained glass windows, and other decorative details.

Based on the home’s listing notes, the kitchen was renovated in 2005 but in a style still keeping with the house's Craftsman design. The resulting remodel is certainly quaint and cozy, but could leave some buyers longing for the bells, whistles, and open floor plans of more contemporary spaces.

A bright sunroom, porch, landscaped yard, and recently added (but architecturally sensitive) two-and-a-half-car garage nicely round out the rest of the property. Currently listed for $724,900, the home last changed hands for the bargain price of $250,000 at a 1998 foreclosure auction, according to public records.
