In 1887 the architect that was to become a giant of 19th-century Architecture, William LeBaron Jenney, designed this extraordinary home. Unlike many of the superb homes in the area, the original details & proportion have been maintained or recreated in every room. The originally 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 professionally landscaped yard w/garage.
