Step into the grandeur and feel the history of this remarkable Tudor Revival, originally built in 1909 by renowned architect Louis LaBeaume. Once owned by prominent figures like John W. Kauffman and families such as the Wrights, Lemps, and Lamberts, this historic gem showcases hand-carved millwork, a grand parlor, a Chinese-inspired solarium, and a prohibition-era rathskeller. A Crest with "Vino Mujeres Y Canto" - meaning "We got wine, We got women, and we got songs" can be found on the fireplace in the once-upon-a-time "pub". Recent updates include a stunning remodeled kitchen with Carrara marble counters, Ilve Italian 7- burner gas range, a luxurious primary suite in the east wing with a private lounge, two baths, and a walk-in dressing room. Mechanicals are updated as is the impeccable exterior. This tastefully renovated residence is located in a coveted neighborhood. Experience the perfect blend of timeless elegance and modern convenience in this extraordinary piece of history.
