This prairie-style house dates from 1909 and although (as you would expect) it isn’t in entirely original condition, the house still has an air of originality about it.

But changes have been made since the original build, not least with the ‘sympathetic addition’ of an expanded kitchen, new family room and deck area.  That was apparently undertaken by a local architect who purchased the house back in 1977.

Don’t let that put you off though, this is still a wonderful property with some equally stylish glazing and wood detailing throughout. Indeed, the house still has the original sconce lights, art glass windows and built-in cabinetry over 100 years on.
