Property Description

In 1919, an artist-architect built his dream home. Made of brick, stone, and hand-glazed tiles, it's part English Tudor and part Midwestern Arts & Crafts. Situated on over an acre in east Highland Park, it's tucked behind a private ravine and features a stone path and bridge, the perfect pathway to Ravinia School two blocks west and Rosewood Beach, two blocks east. The first floor living room, capacious by every standard, is anchored by glass French doors at one end, and a stone fireplace, complete with inglenook bench seating, on the other. The dining room features original oak wainscoting, an oak built-in buffet, and an oak booth where, for several generations of family celebrations, the kids sat. Tiles glazed and fired by the artist-architect finish the dining room. A large family room offers open and comfortable living space on the first floor. Its picture windows provide natural light, as well as a view (and access) to the spacious patio and pool outside. A wet bar completes the room. Servicing the pool is a full bathroom with dressing area, washer and dryer and kitchenette. The breakfast room and kitchen complete the first floor, adding light and space and access to the pool. The second floor features 6 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Though they function perfectly well, they can be reimagined into a sensational primary suite and 3 or 4 additional bedrooms depending on your design. It is rare to find a finished basement and true walk-up attic in a house from this era, but this home has it. Plus, the charming cottage, which currently has a lease for $1,500/month, can be repurposed as an in-law unit, home office, gym or kept as a rental. So many options! Charm, character, privacy, ravines, Ravinia, Lake Michigan, the train, shall I continue??? This home has not been on the market for 63 years. Come see why those who live here, stay! House and cottage being sold "As Is"
