Why We ❤️️ It
- Character. Originally built in 1925, this home is from an era when craftsmen took a deep pride in their trade and it still shines through almost 100 years later. Newer homes go to great lengths to recreate the look of homes like this because they know people love the idea of the story. Fortunately for you, the story behind this home isn't a work of fiction... and now you can add your own chapter to this tale.
- Location. Elmhurst is an ideal location for many reasons. Just minutes from hip Midtown, ultra-cool Triangle District, and the well-known Fab 40’s.
The FULL Story
As you pull up to the house, you will notice the well-manicured yard, and the beautiful brick home. While walking up the stone path, take a peek at the nicely landscaped “courtyard” and the cozy front porch.
After relaxing on the porch, you can step into the living room. Bask in the warm glow of the sunlight streaming in through leaded glass windows, bouncing off the beautiful wood floors. Imagine sitting by the fire in the Winter or enjoying the view of the flowers out front in Spring.

To your left is a room perfect for an office/library/you name it, which also leads upstairs - but let’s tour the first floor first and come back to that in a bit.
The dining room is large enough for your big table and a hutch or flexible enough to be used as another living space if you prefer. Enjoy a digestif after dinner on your quaint patio that sits off this room.
The kitchen is capable of meals that would make Anthony Bourdain blush... and it's ready for a new chef. Counters and cabinets line two walls, the 6-burner antique style oven sits under an exposed brick wall [swoon], and there is plenty of room for a large island or eat-in table.
Living the Easy Life
The gas fireplace in the family room is very cozy - this is where you can nap after your belly is full! This is also where you can enjoy the view out back from the two, large, floor-to-ceiling windows.
The guest bedroom sits off the dining room, tucked away in its own special corner of the house. Light streams in through the large window and a large closet comes in pretty handy when it includes drawers underneath!
In the full bath downstairs, black and white tile floors, subway tile in the shower over tub, brushed nickel fixtures, and a modern warm wood trimmed mirror perfectly combines the old and the new.
Back to that room I mentioned earlier - built-in bookshelves line two walls and 4 windows let SO much light in. Peek around the bookcase and you’ll see a flight of stairs...
Walk up the staircase and arrive in your Master Suite. The sloped ceilings play with the light coming in from the skylights and the window in the adorable sitting area. This is the perfect spot to catch up on some reading, or if you’re like me and need a little extra space for your wardrobe, you can turn this into a “closet/boudoir” area. Fainting couch anyone? 😏
Notice the small nook, home to storage space, including a closet behind a mirrored door, plus skylight and recessed lighting.
The master bath has vanities on either side of the door, plus a tiled stand-up shower with skylight.
You can reach the back yard two ways. The first is from the patio off the dining room and the second is off the back family room (the laundry room is also back there.)
Bamboo and other tall plants and trees line your way around the back of the house and add a nice amount of shade without making it too dark.
The main patio is big enough for a large table for outdoor dining, seating areas, a hot tub, and more! Whatever you choose, you’ll also have the little patio next to the garage for extra seating!
The detached garage will come in handy for Mr. or Mrs. Fix-it!
