In this eclectic home: an amber yellow foyer, candy red living room, and a sage kitchen. Somehow, in the 118-year-old Logan Square house, it all comes together.

A brick exterior with white shutters and a colonial-style front porch is tucked behind thick bushes and vibrant trees. Built in 1901, the original trim still remains. Plus, the owners matched the new hardwood flooring to the original wood for a seamless aesthetic.

The main floor features an Italian minimalist kitchen which opens up to the whimsical backyard. There’s also a sitting room off the foyer with a wood mantel fireplace and elegant mosaic details. Upstairs, you’ll find three large bedrooms and a bathroom.

In the backyard, there’s a winding stone pathway that curves around manicured shrubs, mature trees, a raised garden bed, and a secluded pergola covered on the top by a thicket of vines. There’s a small brick garage with an incredible mosaic wall depicting a flowery tree.

Is this quirky home for you? 2710 West Logan Boulevard is listed for $1,299,000.
