In 1887, the architect known as the father of the skyscraper designed this very special home. William LeBaron Jenney imbued the interior with a grace and proportion that belie its frame exterior. A carved stairway anchors the huge foyer, which links the elegant dining room, living room and music rooms. Delicately detailed ceilings, light fixtures, cabinetry and leaded glass abound. Historic elements blend seamlessly with a new gourmet kitchen, breakfast room and office. A mud room leads to the professionally landscaped yard w/garage; the wine cellar and laundry room are on the lower level. The second level features a huge master suite, with sitting room, fireplace, dressing area and new bath. There are two addt'l bedrooms, adjoined to a heated porch overlooking the lush yard, and a full bath. The third level features two additional bedrooms, gym, second kitchen and laundry, and new full bath. A superb family home - you can write the next chapter of its extraordinary history.
