    Description

    Just ask Hansel and Gretel for directions... you only need to follow the breadcrumbs to this magical home with fairytale charm. This French Normandy style home was built of old-world craftsmanship, yet almost feels whimsical... stone and stucco, original slate tile roof, copper flashing and gutters, leaded glass windows, and come see the "sick bay", even 100 years ago they built homes to quarantine! So deeply steeped in history that it's no surprise it's one of only 3 officially registered landmark structures in Palos Park and the only private home with this historic landmark designation(which would include the Village Rec center and the McCord house both noted in the virtual tour video, additionally is only one of 5 structures in the village that currently could qualify for the National Register of Historic Places). The Palos Dells neighborhood was put on the map by the Grey Family(the original owners of the Plush Horse building), The Wabash Railroad Company(with a Chicago to St. Louis line), The Chicago Sharpshooters Club of 1894(the most expensive club of its kind in the country at the time), and even has ties all the way back to the Civil War as a training camp! If you appreciate history and love being transported back in time, then this is the home for you! Designed by architect Jim Pomeroy Jr. the home was built in 1927 by George Pagels and was the first lot bought and built on in the subdivision at the time, and was even featured as "A home of the Month" in the Chicago Tribune in 1928. Eventually, the home was sold and bought by a Swift Company meat packing executive in the late 1930's who owned the property into the early 1960's. Originally built right in the center of town, you can still to this very day still walk to the train, the forest preserves, the police/fire dept, the Rec center, library, and most importantly are only a stone's throw from the Plush Horse! The history of his home, the neighborhood, and all of Palos Park are well documented. The owner, "custodians of history" if you will... as they pass the torch, only hope the next owner will love and cherish the property as much as they did these last 44 years! "If you love your home, it will love you back"! -D.D.
