A stylishly updated American Foursquare—paned glass showers, hexagon tiles, farmhouse sink—has listed in Rogers Park on a sleepy little street just a block off the main road.

The tiered, light green stucco home has major curb appeal with landscaped front yard and small brick steps. The enclosed front porch creates the perfect semi-private space to get fresh air, look out over the tree-lined street, and relax.

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom home was built in 1901 and still has a number of original features which include leaded glass windows at the front, stained glass near the stairway, wooden panels, pocket doors, and an original built-in hutch.

The vintage details are blended with a rehab of the main living spaces. Dark wood dining room panels are complemented by poppy green wallpaper and the vintage wooden hutch makes the white marble kitchen less cookie-cutter. The four bathrooms are completely updated with stylish vanities, trendy tiles, and chic industrial light fixtures. Four bedrooms are on the second level with a master suite on the attic level just above them.

There’s a garage that fits four cars and a massive backyard with a deck and fencing too. The location in Rogers Park is a few minutes walk to the lakeshore and the Howard Red Line stop.

Love what you see? 1419 W. Birchwood Avenue is listed for $628,999.
