A couple blocks east of Mid-City and just off Washington, this renovated 1,704-square-foot Craftsman in Arlington Heights is maximizing its space. In addition to its four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, there's also a finished attic (approximately 400 square feet), a bonus room (about 200 square feet), and a wide front porch. The 1912 house has a good deal of its original features, like the hardwood floors, doors, wood paneling, and stained glass.
But it's not all vintage here: there's new central heating and air conditioning, a newish kitchen with granite counters, and newer-looking bathrooms. The house sits on a 7,500-square-foot lot and has a large, paved patio and a little bit of grass in the back yard. Last sold in May of this year for $445,000, it's now asking $648,900.
