    Elmhurst is a charming town but with lots of tear downs.
    My sister-in-law lives a block away and every time we visit there another house is gone and a new on in its place. Let’s hope this one survives.

      Sounds like it’s got the same disease as my nearby home-town, Wheaton. Every time I go back another McMansion has taken the place of a neat old house.

    I really like this one, so much space inside! Love the second floor. I sure hope this one doesn’t get torn down!

    I can’t figure out what the white built-in box above the kitchen counter is. Can someone tell me what it’s for?

      It’s a built-in milk box. You can see 3 photos down the outside door that the delivery man would put the milk and other dairy products in. The small compartment is insulated to keep the milk cool. (I’m old enough to remember when milk came in nice glass quart bottles that were returned for refilling. I got yelled at more than once for opening a new bottle to taste the fresh cream at the top, before homogenization was perfected.)

      I believe it was for delivery of milk bottles. In the next photo, there is a corresponding door to the inside where the bottles were left.

      If look at the side door, you can see similar door in brown. I would guess door for milk delivery? I don’t know the right word, sorry…

    Craftsman style homes have long been my favorite. But recently, Tudor Revival is catching my eye… and this one is no exception!

    Great house! It’s a bit of a time capsule too. The baseboard heating needs to go!
