August 29, 2010Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Nothing new in MCM homes for sale here in my area of Michigan, soooo, I paddled my canoe (the poor man’s yacht) across Lake Michigan to the Chicagoland area for a look-see.
At 108 Howe Terrace in Barrington, Illinois, is a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom MCM home built in 1954. There is 2,334 square feet of living space, a walk-out basement and 2 car attached garage. Everything looks pretty original, except someone talked the owner(s) into replacing the entry doors. RE/MAX of Barrington is the broker and has it listed for $398,500.00.

The only drawback I see with this house is the flat roof, which in freezing cold temperatures can be a problem, but I still love the house!
What was my favorite original piece from the home? The door chimes in the foyer!
