Built in 1937 by renowned Chicago Architect, Ralph E. Stoetzel (1892 - 1970), this home bears historic significance and is representative of the elements that were the hallmarks of Stoetzel's architectural designs. This home's steeply pitched roof with cedar shake shingles, brick construction, asymmetrical plan, and multi-paned windows are characteristic of the modern English Cottage style which was prevalent from 1920 to 1940. Inside this home, the arched doorways and warm tones of the oak millwork are also reminiscent of English Cottage architecture and were Stoetzel's signature design elements. Much of the original fundamentals in this home have been preserved and restored, including the solid oak built-ins framing the closets and window seat in the Foyer, the 8 panel interior doors, the plaster walls, and the rich hardwood floors. Indeed, it's the oak millwork that gives the home a vintage, finely crafted feel.
Large windows in the Living Room, including a lovely bay window, permit streams of natural light to brighten this spacious entertaining space. The wood-burning Fireplace with wood mantel is the focal point in the room and you'll discover a lighted display niche tucked alongside the fireplace, perfect for displaying artful treasures. On the other side of the Foyer is the Formal Dining Room. Here, white millwork including a chair rail and crown molding enhances the room and also frames the nearly full wall of windows. The elegant chandelier will hang gracefully over the Dining table.
Pass from the Dining Room directly into the Kitchen with its abundance of cabinet storage space and counter prep space. This highly functional Kitchen includes a double sink, track lighting, a complete appliance package and is embellished with decorative molding crowning the cabinetry and a custom tile backsplash behind the cook-top.
The Kitchen flows nicely through French Doors into the Breakfast Room and Family Room. This will undoubtedly be the popular gathering spot! The many windows along the length of these Rooms allows views onto the lushly landscaped grounds and wood deck with built-in benches and planters. The exposed brick and drapery add a dramatic flair to the Family Room.
Climb the extra wide staircase to the Master Bedroom plus 3 additional Bedrooms on the Second level. The English Cottage character is revealed on this level in the dormer roof lines of the Bedrooms. You'll be delighted to discover that all of the bedrooms are very generously sized and each have deep closets - something hard to find in homes from this era.
In addition to the many closets, plenty of storage space is available in the attic with pull-down stairs and in the full basement which includes a large Laundry room and has a walk-out exterior access.
A Rare Opportunity to own an Architectural Treasure!
