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...
