What is this home's hidden gem?
"This traditional Dutch Colonial home has a large and wonderful family room that features a wood-burning fireplace, large arched windows and a charming window seat. This home has 67 windows throughout, which makes for a very bright home."
What would your perfect buyer look like?
"Anyone who has a love for Old World charms with a healthy dose of today's lifestyles."
What is the coolest thing about living in this neighborhood?
"Being able to be smack in the middle of the Historic Arlington Neighborhood District is very cool. The home is also less than three blocks from the library and historical museum and only five blocks from the Metra train (station) and the downtown Arlington Heights business district, which has become a hot spot for dining. Great parks and award-winning schools (Olive-Mary Stitt Elementary, Thomas Middle, Hersey High) are the bonus."
Which television show can you picture taking place in this home?
" 'Leave it to Beaver.' Between the quaint neighborhood feel and the charms of this warm and welcoming home, it is embodies the American dream. Look for June Cleaver to have some cookies coming out of the oven."
