This classically styled Kenilworth home built in 1896 and designed by famed Chicago architect Daniel Burnham is on the market. Exterior entries don’t get grander than this, do they? The home has been updated but maintains its’ original elegance. The skylight at the top of the stairs is amazing.
And the rear façade is as special as the front. This home sits on an oversized lot with beautiful gardens and a pool.
Finally, Burnham was a lead architect for the World’s Columbian Exposition, aka the Chicago World’s Fair.
Even though you may not live in a home as grand as the one pictured above, you can add some architectural detail with additional trim. This article from Houzz has some great ideas.
Are you watching the Olympics? What is your favorite winter sport to watch? I found this article about how hosting the Olympics has been helpful to some cities but a strain for others thought provoking. Let’s hope things end well for Sochi.
I hope you enjoy your week!
