Open Houses to Hit This Weekend {Sunday, June 7}

Open house hunting.
By Caitlin Clark |

Do you like to home ogle? Do you like driving by houses and thinking to yourself, “I’ve been in there. Their indoor hot tub was quite appealing”? Do you actually need to find a new home to live in? Every other week, we scout out three open houses in three different neighborhoods that look well worth the trip.



3705 Normandy Avenue | Open Sunday, June 7 from 2 – 4pm

The Neighborhood: Highland Park

The Price: $1,895,000

Why It Looks Cool: The deep, landscaped front lawn really earned this house some cool points. I actually Google Mapped it (love a good street view) and the partly concealed, contemporary home really stood out amidst its less guarded neighbors. I mean, it never hurts to have a little air of mystery right? I know the private courtyard would still be lovely and gorgeous if it was just a courtyard, but the word “private” really kicks it up a notch. The interior of the house is equally stunning of course, and the backyard pool is probably beautiful in the summertime.



3911 Gilbert Avenue | Open Sunday, June 7 from 3 – 5pm

The Neighborhood: Oak Lawn

The Price: $869,000

Why It Looks Cool: “Private.” It’s back. But this time it’s all about the a private rooftop deck with some great views of Uptown, a hot tub, a fire table, plus a grill, fridge and serving area. You could probably just live up there (though I doubt the fire table gives off that much heat), but the inside of 3911 Gilbert Avenue looks equally inviting. Don’t miss the huge, arched windows, chic, modern bathroom fixtures, and the see through fireplace.



5802 Mercedes Avenue | Open Sunday, June 7 from 3 – 5pm

The Neighborhood: M-Streets of Lower Greenville

The Price: $634,000

Why It Looks Cool: 5802 Mercedes has all the things that make an M-Streets house so charming, including intricate moldings, stained glass, and a lovely Tudor design. But it’s the bright, beautiful kitchen and master bath suite both recently updated with Carrera marble that make this home a must-see. Bonus points for the gorgeous, predominantly black and white furnishings.
