That’s why we love open houses, and our CandysDirt Open Houses of the Week column was created to bring you an insider’s take on properties you don’t want to miss.

This week, our houses range in price from $389,999 to $1.025 million, and the selection is truly outstanding. You’ll find a range of properties, from a super-rare Pennsylvania Dutch farmhouse-style home, to an Alger Park cottage that feels like a treehouse in the woods. Let us know what you think of our choices, and if you know of any we should feature next week.
