This classic Dutch Colonial built in 1914 is the cheapest home on our list and the least expensive per square foot. That makes it one of the better deals in our lineup, especially since it's in a decent location on the city's southwest side. It's less than a quarter of a mile from the 14-acre Lindenwood Park and Interstate 44, and you can get downtown in about 15 minutes. The home itself boasts three bedrooms, one full bathroom and one half bath. The master bedroom is located on the main level, along with a living room, dining room and kitchen, which features a new stove and standard appliances. The home's hardwood floors have been refinished. And there's a screened-in sunroom at the back of the house where you can look out at the oversized lot and a perennial garden, which is perfect for those budding gardeners out there.
