HOUSE HISTORY:

A stunning example of early transitional Prairie design, this exceptional house incorporates unique prominent octagonal turrets on either side of the front entrance and repeating octagonal themes in room plans and details throughout. Early use of overhanging eaves, stepped limestone foundation, massive rectilinear chimney, beautiful quarter sawn oak woodwork and cabinetry, and original art glass design have become classic Wright details.

This wonderful family home offers five bedrooms, three bathrooms, with a third floor suite perfect for a nanny, teen or office situation. Flowing floor plans, high ceilings and large art glass windows offer a wonderfully spacious feel and bring nature in view. Two wood burning fireplaces on the main floor add interest and beautiful details. Space Pac central air was recently added, hardwood floors have been refinished, and rooms have been painted with authentic paint colors. Sited in a spacious yard, there is a two car garage with driveway, and a red tile patio. With superb center of town location Oak Park’s amenities are close by including the Oak Park Public Library, Scoville Park, restaurants, trains, schools and more.

Oak Park is known for its architectural and social diversity, progressive school systems, year-round parks and recreation programs offering activities for all ages to enjoy. In close proximity to downtown Chicago, Oak Park is easily accessible by trains and car. It is equidistant to O’Hare and Midway airports and is a close hub to all destinations.
