Highland Park Real Estate Sold by Douglas Newby
Designed by architect, Wade H. Klamberg in 1937, this classic Highland Park home resembles an Adams eclectic style with flourishes of carved detail reflecting the era. A center hall opens to the formal living room with 9 foot ceilings and floor to ceiling windows and a large informal living room opens to a courtyard that leads to the pool and cabana.
The original ceiling beams define the formal dining room. The stainless steel six burner stove, granite countertops, and custom cabinetry reflect the grace and style of the home, and, of course, the formal study off the front door connotes a classic city estate.
This home was renovated through 2004 and 2005. Four bedrooms are found upstairs with light streaming through the original double hung windows which have all been reconstructed and re-hung. Maybe my favorite aspect of the home is that it is adjacent to a one and a half story historic home that has been renovated which will allow you to look out your bedroom windows over the roof of the adjacent home instead of into a brick wall of a large two-story home.
