This week’s feature of an older home in an older neigborhood came from a little Saturday trip over to Bloomington-Normal this past weekend. B/N is the home to Illinois State University, Illinois Wesleyan University, State Farm, Country Insurance, and BEER NUTS. It was also featured in Richard Florida’s, “The Rise of the Creative Class.”
I noticed this week’s house as a similar style bungalow that I featured last week. I wanted to feature this home as it has its differences, but also signifies that these types of homes are all over. Not to mention that they are located in affordable, creative, and desirable cities. It looks like something that would appear in Pottery Barn, but without the high mortgage payments.
