It’s easy to see why Glen Park ilk are protective of their neighborhood. It’s just so damn pretty. Take, for example, this detached, shingled craftsman at 1167 Bosworth.

Featuring three beds, two baths, and approximately 2,000 square feet, this 1915 home has been recently renovated. But most of its period details—wood wainscot, box beams, hardwood flooring—have been mercifully left intact.

According to the home’s realtor, Wendy Storch, the home’s original builder was a craftsman who built fireplaces as his trade. He built five other homes in the neighborhood for members of his family.

“His great granddaughter visited the home when I had it listed last time,” said Storch. “She was moved by how the subsequent owners had altered the home with such sensitivity to the true nature of the original building.”

Last sold in 2010 for $1,010,000, it’s now asking $1,695,000.
