Property Description

Motivated Seller! Nothing to do but unpack your bags and move in! Storybook Castle complete with a 4-stop elevator and a hidden room! Main Bedroom suite is a dream come true with a bonus room office, fireplace, leaded windows, a separate washer and dryer in the walk-in closet and a soaker tub tucked right into the turret. You will never want to leave! Three car garage coach house that was inspired by a NY City studio with complete kitchen, and full bathroom make working from home a breeze. When we purchased the Mitchell home it was in a sad state of disrepair. It had not been updated in decades, the original light fixtures were gone, & it came to us complete with shag carpeting, and a front porch that was crumbling away from the structure. This home needed to be brought back to life and brought up to date, but it needed to be done in a way that way sympathetic to its original style and grandeur. After all, this is a timeless classic, a Queen Anne Victorian! We started by going to the historical society and finding out as much of the homes history as we could. One of the most interesting things we found out was that this home was built by the founder of La Grange as a wedding present for his daughter. Next, we went to Palmers in Lagrange and we started dreaming our plan. Next came the books on the Victorian era and researching accoutrements that would fit this home. Then the work started; the interior of the home was gutted down to the stone walls. You could stand in the basement and see the roof rafters. The porch was demolished and the stone on the back of the home was peeled off to prepare for a 3-story addition. All of the stone that was removed and was preserved and split where necessary so that the new steel porch structure and foyer addition would match the original structure perfectly. A dozen quarries sent stone samples from all over the United States to try to match as closely as possible the 120+ year old stone. We chose Limestone Lannon Stone from Kentucky. Blocks were cut in various sizes so the new structure would blend with the original as seamlessly as possible. Hardware, woodwork, stained glass, and other accoutrements were selected and sometimes handmade so the new parts had the same quality as it would have in the 1800's. But as much as we respect the history of this house, we also were aware that it needed some modern amenities like Sound by Nuvo, (SONOS), Superior WIFI that would stream your zoom meetings seamlessly, Ring Security and Cameras, Brilliant Smart Home control in main bathroom, heated floors, UV lighted HVAC system (PURIFIED AIR), and top of the line water filtration (PURIFIED WATER). We used Green product like New Wool insulation and a 50+year roofing product, By DaVinci. Copper, Zinc, and Custom Gutter screens means NO MAINTENANCE for decades! While the home has a couple period light fixtures and a some built-in's that we were able to salvage, most of the home has been updated with new fixtures and has been freshly painted. Every inch of this home is finished
