An immaculate 1890 mansion by James McLaughlin with 6,700 square feet, 7 bedrooms, 8 baths, and 7 fireplaces. James W. McLaughlin (1834-1923) was one of the most important American architects during the second half of the nineteenth century. McLaughlin gave definitive form to the numerous cultural and public institutions developed during this highpoint of prosperity, creativity, and influence. McLaughlin had a distinctive stylistic personality, and was innovative structurally and functionally. McLaughlin's designs were recognized as a functional and structural model for its day. His designs reflect his bold approach to conventional styles. His best and most characteristic surviving works are in his version of the Richardson Romanesque style stripped to its most basic geometric forms, with minimal ornament demonstrating an innovative approach to materials.
This 1890 home is located near the inner city where its value is depreciated in its urban environment and the economics of maintaining it on its current site are prohibitive. It can be disassembled and moved to a complementary setting permanently preserving the beauty of this historic architecture. Its value as private or institutional real estate is priceless.
Romanesque I is in pristine shape internally. Enjoy the video of the interior at the link above. The house and its interior are a gilded age artwork. All of it is real, with period antiques of museum quality. Presidents McKinley and Taft would have been quite comfortable here.
Moving this house will create at least 30 man years of American work for design, construction, and transportation professionals. Appropriate buyers would be individuals building estates or institutions enhancing their campuses, restaurants, embassies, museums, private banks, legal firms, movie producers, etc. that can benefit from maintaining this authentic window into 1890.
