Historic in age and timeless in architecture this vintage 1920's Colonial style three bedroom home was originally built as a winter escape for Henry F. DuPont. It offers well appointed rooms which easily accommodate large gatherings with style and grace. History abounds with the extensive foyer, hardwood floors, intricate wood molding, large living room with 10' ceiling, spacious study, office, four fireplaces, French doors, formal dining room, and a separate breakfast room off the kitchen. The architectural interest of this home has been notably preserved by the two large arched mosaic art murals and two wall sconces over the fireplace, designed and commissioned in 1930. The art work is made of shell and mirror pieces located in the garden room and are reminiscent of shell grotto's in 18th and 19th century Europe. The garden room is embellished by walls of glass capturing the beauty of the surrounding landscape and garden. The spacious upper level master suite affords privacy, with a fireplace, bay windows, his/her walk-in closets, separate sitting room, and numerous windows overlooking tranquil views of the verdant garden. A perfect balance of serenity and energy is found in many outdoor spaces in a beautifully designed garden with Old Chicago brick used for walkways and planked flooring uniting the area between two wings of the home. This home has a side entry 1+ car garage.
