Des Plaines Vintage Homes
A vintage home refers to any type of home style from a past era. Vintage is, of course, an umbrella term. One could call a Mid-Century Modern home a 'vintage home' or a Craftsman-era house a 'vintage home.' To qualify as a vintage house, the home must embody the architectural characteristics of its era and have been constructed during that era. Also, to be dubbed as a vintage house, the home must be at least 25 years old.
Today's best examples of vintage homes will contain original features that are still intact. This might be the beams that stretch across its living space or the original tin ceiling installed in the dining room. Because the best-maintained vintage homes tend to be costly, many house hunters search for vintage houses that they, themselves, can restore over time. Expertly restored vintage houses are also highly sought after on the real estate market—especially homes from a particular era like the Arts and Crafts era or Victorian period.
