The spacious parlor, living room, library and dining room are each trimmed in warm, hand crafted woods.

Three of them have beautiful gas fireplaces. The third floor has a wonderful 41 x 25 foot ballroom along with three more nicely sized rooms w/closets and a full bath.

Truly a blend of all-world original details meshed with the space and flexibility today's family requires.------------------------- The home sits prominently on a corner lot voted "Best four corners in Oak Park".
