George Lanier with Land Here Realty has listed 3612 Herschel Avenue for $525,000. Open House, this Saturday, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Built in 1927 yet beautifully restored for modern-day, this Bungalow brings the drama and low maintenance living to North Oak Lawn. It’s also a rare find for the area.

“This is one of the very few last standing single family homes surrounded by townhouses, condos, and apartments in the North Oak Lawn area,” says listing agent George Lanier with Land Here Realty. “There are so many unique features about this home. Though it was built in 1927, it has smart home technology, such as a Nest thermostat and Green Air UV purification for the HVAC.”

And the Caruth Terrace gem has all the bells and whistles. We are talking a huge fenced backyard, light and bright interiors, and plenty of room to host a crowd.

Best Craftsman Evaaah! That’s how Ged Dipprey brought this Winnetka Heights gem to our attention. And the Dave Perry-Miller agent is right. This three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom listing is the perfect Friday Five Hundred, offering an exceptional location and high design at a reasonable price.

“Frankly, this house is a gift listing,” says Dipprey. “Not to devalue my services, but let’s be real: Doesn’t this house sell itself? New everything and taken to the studs in 2015, I can’t think of a single design element that I don’t love!” 

Of course, the proof is in the pudding. And upon further inspection, we can see why Ged is so excited.

It adds a heavy dose of glamour and serves as a focal point in the room. Tall windows and access to an outdoor deck are a plus.
