Looking like a 1920s-era newspaper ad extolling the virtues of moving out West, this 1916 Craftsman house in Highland Park’s Garvanza neighborhood balances old-timey charm (those shingles!) with sleek, modern upgrades.
The two-bedroom house features gleaming wood floors, plenty of windows, a dining area, and a bright kitchen with what appear to be butcher block counter tops. In the living room and dining room, built-in shelving and cabinets abound.
The house has only one bathroom, but it’s clearly been updated, and holds a glass shower enclosure with subway tile and a unique vanity.
The long backyard holds some grass and mostly low-maintenance landscaping, raised planting beds, and a patio with space for outdoor dining.
The house last changed hands in 2007, for $545,000. Now, it’s listed for $779,000.
