WLS-Ch. 7 weekend sports anchor and reporter Dionne Miller and her husband have paid $705,000 for a four-bedroom, 3,424-square-foot, French Colonial-style house on the Far Northwest Side of Chicago.
An Ohio native, Miller joined ABC 7 in 2014 after working for 2-1/2 years as a sports anchor and reporter at WFLD-Ch. 32.
Miller and her husband, Ray Crawford, previously were renting in the city.
"It meant something to me to stay in the city, but I wanted a suburban feel, and I feel like with our neighborhood, we got the best of both worlds," she told Elite Street. "We have two small children and we have no family in the area, so we had kind of a live canvas and could have gone anywhere, but we felt like this made the most sense. It's both a great elementary school and a great neighborhood feel, as well as a good commute for me and for my husband who works ... in the West Loop. We felt like this was a good mix for both of us."
Built before World War II, Miller's two-story stone house has 3-1/2 baths, two fireplaces, a kitchen with granite counters and a pantry, a master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, a private office and a 2-1/2-car garage.
