On a very pleasant, tree-lined street with mostly single-family houses—this brick home has major curb appeal for a newer home.

It’s not uncommon for new constructions to break with the unified look of homes on a street. However, with the dark brown brick and steep gable this home blends in better than most.

The home was built in 2008, but underwent a top-to-bottom rehab that included an outdoor space with an herb garden, West Elm light fixtures, and a keyless entry system. The interior evokes a slight farmhouse feel with natural wood built-ins and two sliding barn doors. The rehab brings a crisp white brightness to the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms.

The master bedroom is on the top floor with vaulted ceilings and large windows. The ensuite bathroom is like a mini spa with towel warmers, a soaking tub, river rock mosaic shower flooring, and a floating double vanity.

For those who take public transportation, it’s about a ten minute walk to the Montrose Blue Line station and the Mayfair Metra station. And, this far north, nature lovers won’t be too far from places like the LaBagh Woods, the North Branch of the Chicago River, and the North Park nature center.
