Stately Manor in Ravenswood, Chicago

This single family residence is quite a change from the many brick multi-unit buildings and traditional to Colonial frame single family homes that dot the Ravenswood landscape. This house looks a little more 18th Century Jeffersonian. Sort of a Southern Plantation style to it as well. I wonder if the owners who commissioned the home and the architect have Southern roots.

Certainly, this home sets a very different mood and I applaud the execution of this graceful dwelling.
