Buyers seeking a historic property with all the practicality of a newer construction will find plenty to like about this Oak Park home, built in 1912. The brick American Foursquare displays Prairie School influences including broad horizontal lines, a partially enclosed wrap around porch, and a hip roof clad in emerald tiles.

Inside, there are hardwood floors and wood trim galore. Spanning just shy of 3,000 square feet, the four-bedroom property includes stained glass windows, a wood-lined formal dining room, a contemporary kitchen with all of the modern bells and whistles, and an enclosed sunroom with a wet bar. There are also family rooms in both the attic and finished basement, and a fenced-in rear yard with a patio and detached brick garage.

Situated on a corner lot, the property at 337 S. Elmwood Avenue is a contributing structure in the Ridgeland-Oak Park Historic District, which is home notable architecture such as Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Unity Temple. The home recently hit the market seeking $1.2 million. It last changed hands in 2004 for $975,000, public records show.
