    Description

    A dream begun in 1931, with its completion in 1935, by noted Chicago architects John T. and Murray Hetherington. This masterpiece is one of Palos Park's finest examples of French Eclectic style. A formal and elegant look with its steeply pitched roof with flared eaves, stone and brick finishes, casement windows, and stately door, this home is as refreshing as the "Kool Aid Mansion" nick name it has affectionately been dubbed, referring to its previous owner and Kool Aid Inventor's family Ivan and Edwin Perkins. Equally historic in design, Marshall Field's Decorators oversaw much of the interiors including the venetian plastered finished walls on most of the first floor. Adhering to their motto, "Give the lady what she wants," it was the perfect pairing to the spectacular craftsmanship of this residence. Soaring ceilings with original beams and oak flooring, natural carved stone wood burning fireplace, and bronze banisters. The owners have meticulously honored the rich preservation of this estate as noted on their registered historical plaque upon entry. As solid as it is stunning, this "fireproof" home is built with all steel joists and beams and is doubled bricked. Still plenty of "new" with replaced roof, copper flashing, and copper plumbing throughout. Set upon a wooded 1+ acre lot with stone drive and walk thru pergola to balcony and patio. One of Illinois top rated grade schools, Lake Michigan water and public sewers. Breathtaking and timeless for sure, yet convenient to shopping, dining and another sweet icon, Palos Park's Plush Horse Ice Cream Parlor. A home cherished by its previous owners and ready for a new forever family and the next chapter.
