About This 1908 Arts And Crafts For Sale In La Grange Illinois

In what many consider architect C.F. Jobson’s Arts and Crafts masterpiece, this 1908 home sits in the heart of La Grange’s coveted Historic District. A student of Frank Lloyd Wright, Jobson designed an open floor plan with broad passageways, coved ceilings, stained glass, and quarter-sawn oak trim and flooring throughout. Upon entering the vestibule, you’ll know you’ve walked into something special. The foyer is flanked by a charming music room/library with windowed pocket doors, and a spacious living room with a broad mantel and wood-burning fireplace.

The adjacent family room is surrounded by windows, bringing sunshine and the backyard oasis into full view. An elegant dining room features rich quarter-sawn wainscoting, a built-in sideboard, leaded glass cabinetry, and a sculpted plaster ceiling. The meticulously-restored kitchen and butler’s pantry feature maple flooring, butcher block countertops, custom oak cabinets, and a brand-new Sub Zero refrigerator.

Climb the grand staircase to four bedrooms on the second level with two full baths, including the primary bedroom with shared bath and two generous walk-in closets with built-in bureaus. Three more large bedrooms and a full bath are on the third level. The basement has a finished 50′ X 25′ recreation/billiard room (Brunswick table included) with 5 large windows and a wood-burning fireplace.

The magic continues outside. Walk through a Japanese-style roofed gate that connects the home with its two-story garage, and you’ll enter a calming, Zen-like garden with winding stone paths, a 40-foot stream/Koi pond and a restored Foley-built greenhouse. A fire pit and hand-hewn stone patio complete the oasis. This home is within walking distance of Cossitt Elementary School and Lyons Township High School, the Metra train station, and La Grange’s restaurants, boutiques, and theater. Located between Midway and O’Hare airports, this location is hard to beat. On the market for the first time in 33 years, come see this remarkable home!
