This Suburban Chicago house has two stories with an exterior of face brick and a combination of horizontal and leaded casement windows. Over the years, this house has undergone several changes both, internally and externally.

On entering this house, you pass a beautiful oak door that is wainscotted. The upper half consists of French-style beveled glass. The oak floor and the hand-painted sconces on the wall give a vigorous appearance to the length of the living room.

The original fireplace was remodeled and now has white tiles, some hand-painted with prairie flowers. This fireplace also has an antique wood-burning stove that heats the house in the winter.
