Owing to the sporadic nature of our "most recent" House Hunt articles—and that we like to break those up with thematic editions—we don't catch every single new house that goes on sale.
But when five new homes land on the Western Springs market in just two days, it merits some degree of special attention. So here they are, five houses that could now be yours as of late Tuesday afternoon this week, four of them under $500,000 and representing a wide spectrum of Village architecture.
