  1. I like Dunlop house double decks – sun or no sun.
    Great house Great Post…

  2. That’s a tough choice but I think I’d take the Dunlop house, too. My brother-in-law grew up in Oak Park. His parents had one of those old homes – not quite as big as these two though. It was beautiful!

  3. I know, I meant to talk more about how much I like the wrap around porches and railing and all the exterior details on the Queen Anne.

  4. omg the queen anne for surrrrrrrrrrrrrre the two wrap around porches had me but then the blk n white stove and the kitchen im innnnnnnnnnnn lol

  5. I do like the built in master bed area and window seat in the 2nd house, good call.

  6. That wrap around porch kills me! And oh how I love that master bed/bath in the 2nd house…I’ll take both!

  7. Dark wood is not popular anymore I know because I have an overwhelming desire to paint everything white. Meet You In St. Louis in 5 years Dana, we will have a ball house hunting.

    I want the conservatory!! Beautiful homes, but I prefer light and airy as opposed to a lot of dark wood.

    In about five years, (when my daughter goes to college) I need you to locate a home in St. Louis that is inexpensive, has a significant amount of charm, with a beautiful yard and porch and a gorgeous kitchen. Okay? I love your discovers, Sue!

  9. Ha, you’re zactly like me and love em both for different reasons. Cool that you have been to Oak Park too Cyndi.

  10. Traditionally, I’m a fan of Prairie and Bungalows, but the conservatory and rounded landings of the Queen Anne would certainly have my bid. But then again the Prairie has that glass ceiling atrium that would have me sitting in there all day! I’m glad I don’t have to choose! Thanks for sharing – someday I’m going to make it back to Oak Park!
