Enormous Limestone Mansion in Oak Park Lists for $2.5M

New, 2 comments

This historic residence was originally completed in 1905

Oak Park is known for its inventory of Prairie style homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and contemporaries of Wright, but the Chicago suburb is also home to a number of large mansions built at the turn of the century. This 9,500-square-foot limestone mansion was designed by the architect H. G. Fiddelke and constructed in 1905. The mansion borrows some Gothic elements for the exterior and cues from the Arts and Crafts movement for the interior to create for a very unique and striking home.

Like other historic homes in the area, this one features a combination of old and new finishes. Much of the interior's original architectural details remain, but there is a remodeled kitchen and newer bathrooms. In addition, the mansion includes garage parking for three cars. The listing agent indicates that this home is eligible to be used as a bed and breakfast — just something to consider for this historic and stately mansion.
