I am not certain if this is the appropriate site to contact you. However, it seems to be a good starting point.
Let me begin by saying that my husband and I own a most unique and charming home. It was built some time in the early 1920s. The structure is all brick with weeping mortar. The architecture is somewhere between Spanish and English Cottage Style. Upon my first entrance into this house, my impression was that I entered a small castle, with its tall domed ceilings, arched windows and doorways. The rooms are large and cathedral like. The Octagon Sun Room, surrounded by windows, was the icing on the cake. Decorating it was/is fun and challenging.
We are in the process of investigating enlarging the master bedroom and adding a full bathroom. However, our concern is the fundamental charm and uniqueness of this house. We do not want to do anything which would make it look "added on" so to speak.
I have always thought it's a wonderful house for one of the *** ****s Shows. Hence my letter to you.
We live in Crystal Lake, Il., a small town 45 miles northwest of Chicago.
If you are interested in learning more about our house, I would be happy to send you pictures via E-Mail or Snail Mail.
Very truly yours, Inge Agrifoglio 344 Warwick Lane, Crystal Lake, Il. 60014 815-459-3677
