Accomplished turn-of-the-last-century architect Normand S. Patton built a good deal in Oak Park, where he also resided. Known for his involvement in the design of some 100 Carnegie Libraries around the country (there were 1,689 in all) as well as many local public schools, he operated largely in the Traditional Revival vein. Case in point: this sumptuous Federal-style house at the lofty architectural core of Oak Park— snuggled up to Wright and Maher homes. The 6,500-square-foot six-bed has super-ornate finishes, a barrel-vaulted foyer, pocket doors, fireplaces, chandeliers, and a third-floor family space with a physically distinct bar room. Naturally a home of this caliber on quite a large lot (100' x 164') would come with a coach house: the 1,700-square-foot space is your bonus income generator. Listed in February, the ask stands at $1.345M.
