"The J.L. LaPrelle house, 1896, at No. 10 was designed by H.F. Roach. It is built of white limestone both dressed and rough-cut in the Romanesque style of Harvey Ellis, complimenting his spired gatehouse at the eastern end of the street. Unfortunately the conical roof atop the projecting bow has been removed."
Here is a further description:"This remarkable home has been lovingly restored and preserved by the current owners to its original magnificent glory. You will be amazed at the hand crafted details in this masterpiece created by true artists of the time. The fine craftsmanship is evident the moment you enter this grand home. Upon entering the vestibule you will find breathtaking onyx covered walls and Italian marble statues. From the exquisite main hall, paneled in exotic Satinwood, to the nine ornately carved fireplace mantels; from the massive staircase with double spindle banisters to the stained glass windows in the landing, this home will amaze you. The kitchen, while maintaining the original feel, has been updated with the addition of a French Lacanche range and Fisher/Paykel dishwasher. If you appreciate history, elegance and craftsmanship this could be your next home."
This exceptional house is on the market for $1.65 million. Listed by Vicki Armor, Dielmann Sotheby's International Realty, 314-725-0009
