About 937 West Lakeside Place

Gorgeous turn of the century brick Queen Anne home in pristine condition on a double lot. Built between 1893 and 1897 for George Kroeck, a paper box manufacturer, and his wife Bertha, as the first house on the block - at the time a mere 1,000 feet from Lake Michigan. This home has had the good fortune of being carefully restored by the same owner over the past 30 years. Handcrafted details like this can only be found in a preserved home of a bygone era. Magnificent entry foyer, stunning staircase with hand-turned spindles, quarter-sawn oak wainscoting, paneled walls, ceiling murals, custom-made bronze hardware, pocket doors, french doors, paneled doors, swinging doors, tiled fireplaces with wooden mantels, endless handcrafted woodwork throughout, and grand windows that attract an endless supply of sunshine. Built with grand-sized rooms and extra-tall coved ceilings, this home unfolds itself over 4 levels, 15 rooms, 6 bedrooms, 3 round tower rooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 staircases, and still has room to grow into with the semi-finished lower level and huge backyard. Updates include electrical, plumbing, heating, windows, insulation, tuckpointing and roofing. Enormous unfinished lower level with high ceilings.
