One of my favorite homes on this week's tour was this little 1937 Tudor home in Arlington Heights. Tudors are not usually my favorite style as they can sometimes feel dark with their smaller windows, and sometimes their interiors can feel a little "cut up". This home defied my expectations as the current owners have brought in a lot of recessed lighting as well as having ample natural light. Virtually everywhere I looked there were thoughtful and tasteful updates. Starting with the kitchen with it's lovely backsplash, pot filler next to the gourmet gas range and lovely light countertops. This is not one of those faux kitchens with take out pizza boxes in the fridge.
The floors on the main are wide plank white oak, the living room is ample enough for two seating arrangements, and off the kitchen and dining room lies a 50 foot mahogany deck overlooking a treed area that is perfect for morning coffee and entertaining. Three bedrooms share the upstairs with an updated bath, and then a downstairs with a second living area, small kitchen and another bath that could serve as a family room, office space and/or guest suite. A lot packed into it's 2097 square feet. Well priced at $539,000
