Property descriptionThis lovely Colonial Revival home was commissioned by Dr. Henry Irving in 1911, and then later given as a wedding gift to Henry's daughter who raised her own family in the house. Anything but ordinary, the architecture is a departure from the standard vocabulary of the style, an enchanting combination of form, function, and decoration. The house was designed by Leonard Willeke, an architect that would go on to enjoy great success in Grosse Point, Michigan while working for Henry Ford. Willeke believed that "...an architect must be an artist and ... painting, music, poetry, sculpture, etc. must be studied by him in order to educate all artistic senses which are expressed in his work."
The much-loved home offers plenty of space without becoming overwhelming. In fact, it became the pefect work-from-home scenario for the current owners and their family! The home is located in the East Walnut Hills historic district and is within walking distance to nearby schools, parks, restaurants, and shops. The homeowner fondly calls this "the best house I will ever own."
