La Grange and Western Springs are two communities full of beautiful homes. But, just being pretty isn't enough to get you onto our list of houses on the market this week. All of the homes featured here are selling for over a million dollars.
A quick, private word to the owners of these homes: if you need a house sitter, I can make myself available. Just let me know when and where.

5 bedrooms, 5 baths, 3700 square feet of living space, on a 0.16-acre lot.
Located in the Field Park neighborhood of Western Springs, this custom built, four-level home was owned by the builder and features unparalleled craftsmanship, architectural detail and finishes, according to the advertisement. It's close to parks, schools and the train.
6 bedrooms, 7 baths, built in 2000
This French Provincial home located in Western Springs is great for entertaining. It features a gazebo and outdoor fireplace that would be perfect for having friends over and spending time outdoors. What really did it for me though, was that it features a, "gentleman’s library and bar," a "Chef's Kitchen," and a billiards room. Fancy!
4 bedrooms, 6 baths, on 0.27 acres
This red brick Colonial features hardwood floors, a huge master bedroom, a downstairs office and a lot of other nice features. It's located in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Western Springs right down the street from Springdale Park.
4 bedrooms, five baths, built in 1917
I love an old house, and this one, built in 1917, fits the bill. The "gourmet kitchen" even features heated floors so when you get up in the middle of the night for a glass of milk, your toes wont get cold. I bet that wasn't in the original design. The master suite features a private dressing room and luxury bathroom.
4 bedrooms, 6 baths, built in 2008
Located in La Grange's Historic District, but built in 2008, you'll be just blocks from the village's fantastic downtown and from the Metra station. The basement features a full bath and an office, which is great if you have a visitor who needs to shower and catch up on a little work. Standout features are a beautiful kitchen and living room, just right for having friends over, or spending a night in with the family.
