Property Description

In 1887 the architect who became a giant of 19th-century Architecture, William L. Jenney, designed this extraordinary home. Unlike many homes in the area, the original details & proportion have been maintained or recreated in every room. All the arduous work has been done. The carved stairway orientates the large foyer on the 1st FL to the formal dining rm, living rm, sun porch, music rm, office, breakfast rm, kitchen, & mud rm. The new gourmet kitchen, breakfast rm & office were designed & constructed to complement the spirit of the home. A mud rm leads to the landscaped yard w/garage. The 2nd FL has a master suite, with sitting rm, fireplace, dressing area & a new bath. Two bedrooms, next to a heated porch overlooking the yard, & full bath. The 3RD FL W/ two bedrooms, a gym, galley kitchen, laundry, & full bath. On the lower level, workroom, wine cellar & laundry rm. This home prominently sits on a 70'x250' parcel in the national known Kenwood Neighborhood.
