I pass the new construction home often and it is a really nice job. The photo in the Sun-Times shows the house needs a little front landscaping (but that's not the point here). I would also argue the home looks a little more prairie style than described in the story (a design which I would have taken more advantage of). There is another more massive recently finished new construction house built prairie style near this home. Both fit in the neighborhood quite well. A neighborhood that has eschewed any sort of modern looking new construction.
I found about 10 homes sold in the last year in Ravenswood Manor are (including Ravenswood Gardens adjacent to the east) with a median price of $565K. However, $500K and under in this neighborhood will need some work... for sure.
