Rarely does one find a private historic home that has been maintained with such an eye to preservation. Listed $30,000 below appraisal, with a .5 acre lot, 417 Fayette Park is the jewel of the neighborhood. Attributed to architects Aldenburg & Scott, the home was first occupied by Daniel Swigert, a renowned horseman. Lavishly trimmed with brick, wood, and terra-cotta, the exterior of the home is dominated by a three story round tower. Details such as a roaring lion, a floral frieze, and an arched window adorned by a stone sunburst show the care that went into the construction. Inside, the front hall is trimmed in bog oak and centered around an intricately carved staircase. Beautiful, original wood trim still remains with the library featuring walnut, the parlor birds-eye maple, and the dining room mahogany. Parquet floors laid out in a mesmerizing pattern formed from four woods are featured in multiple rooms. A home to last through the centuries!
