2204 Madison Ave., $239,900

$240K gets you a whole lotta house in this central suburb. And if the curb appeal isn’t enough to draw you in (just look at those awnings), then you’ll be pleased to know that the interior is just as striking.

Local designer Wendy Doris of Dwelling Studio handled the interior overhaul of this 1890s-era home. She worked with Christopher Michael Homes to open up and paint the walls, select perfectly updated furnishings and fixtures, and renovate the kitchen and bath (see before pictures below). “We wanted to maintain the character of the home while adding modern touches,” says Doris.
