We took a call one afternoon from a couple living in Belgium looking to move back to Washington Park and end a career of corporate travel.  Our clients were looking for a home that would seem as if it predated the neighborhood, perhaps a farm that once sat quietly on a hill, down a dusty road from the bustle of down town, now with mature trees and an entire neighborhood grown up around it. 


The idea of a homecoming for our client after years of travel abroad inspired the short second story walls of the house where the strength of the building is quieted, and a sense of coziness suggests that you might find yourself nestled up on a window bench under the trays of the second story ceilings. Charles Dickens said, ““Every traveler has a home of his own, and he learns to appreciate it the more from his wandering.”  This quote was made true when our clients came home to “Dickens”.
