Take a look at this beautiful home built in 1928 and designed by architect John Mills.  Mills and his family were the original residents; this home has been beautifully maintained over the years.  Doesn’t it look like something from a fairy tale?  The stone and brick exterior and the roof lines are really enchanting.

Mills is known as one of the first “Chicago architects.”  Sadly many of his buildings were destroyed by the Great Chicago Fire but he somehow managed to bury several important sets plans in the soil under the Palmer House and later retrieved them intact.
