Built in 1910, this elegant residence in Arlington Heights’s historic Country Club Park has plenty of carefully preserved period details to go along with some more recent updates.
Last sold in 2015 for $1.17 million, the house was originally built by a midwestern civil engineer named James Clyde Power (at a cost of $10,000), according to listing agent Michael Rozales.
The house has been given a major overhaul by its current owner, designer and former Los Angeles cultural heritage commissioner Jeremy Irvine. Updates include renovated bathrooms, fresh paint, newer appliances, and a contemporary-style kitchen with checkered floors and a large center island.
Plenty of original features remain, like hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, an imposing stone fireplace, multiple stained glass windows and doors, built-in shelving, and a handsome master staircase leading to the second floor.
The home has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms spread across 4,001 square feet of living space. There’s also plenty of storage space in the large attic and a 300-square-foot basement.
The house sits on a 7,800-square-foot lot with a grassy lawn, a spacious front porch, an enclosed backyard, and a garage with an attached workshop space.
Asking price is $1.49 million. An open house is scheduled for 1 to 5 p.m. October 29.
