  • Revere (verb) : to have great respect for (someone or something) : to show devotion and honor to (someone or something).

  • This breaks my heart. WHY would someone tear down the house to begin with – then, to add insult to injury, change their minds and put the empty lot on the market? How can we protect what’s left of the historic homes we have left? CANDY – can you let us know if/ how we can create a preservationist movement?

    • I took a client through this home when it was still for sale late last year. While it looked stately from the street, trust me when I say it was really dated (folks, it was plain bad) on the inside and needed to be torn down. I drove by over the weekend and I must say the lot is much better looking without that house on it. Look forward to seeing what gets built next on this lot. The trees are pretty amazing.

  • The interior photos made me smile. At minimum, this house would have needed an extreme interior makeover/gut job. My fav was the blue carpet room off the pool and the kitchen with the pinkish/Pepto Bismal colored cabinets. Gotta love the Old Rich Highland Park people. Priceless lack of taste.
