How often do you meet a Realtor who knows what a finial is and pronounces wainscoting properly? In my experience, infrequently, and I meet Realtors frequently.
Prudential Rubloff's Tony Iwersen, as you'll see in the video above, and hear in the video below, has both an eye and an ear for the details of the Victorian architecture that lends Oak Park so much of its distinctive character.
Tony and his wife Kathy de-converted the unusual double-turreted Queen Anne home at 1032 Erie St from a rooming house to a single-family home 18 years ago and sold it to its current owners.
The home is in Oak Park's Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District, a block from a cluster of Wright homes, a 5-minute walk from the Metra station, the Lake Theater and downtown shops and restaurants. The 5 bedroom, 3 ½ bath home is priced in the mid-$900s.
