In 1887, an architect who was to become a giant of 19th-century architecture, William LeBaron Jenney, designed this extraordinary home. Unlike many of the other superb homes in the area, the original details and proportions have been maintained or recreated in every room. The originally carved stairway situates the large foyer on the first floor to the formal dining room, living room, sun porch, music room, office, breakfast room, kitchen, and mudroom. The new gourmet kitchen, breakfast room, and office space were designed and constructed to complement the original spirit of the home. A mudroom leads to the professionally landscaped yard, which comes complete with detached garage. The second floor has a master suite, with sitting room, fireplace, dressing area, and a new bath. Also on the second floor, you'll find two bedrooms, adjacent to a heated porch overlooking the yard, and a full bath. The third floor has two bedrooms, a gym, galley kitchen, laundry, and new full bath. On the lower level, workroom, wine cellar, and laundry room. This home prominently sits on a 70'x250' parcel in the nationally known Kenwood Neighborhood.
