Architect Edward H. Bennett's 1916 "Bagatelle" is a splendid example of the French Renaissance style. Created as his personal residence, Bennett embraced elegance and symmetry in this quintessential French estate. There are over 2 acres of picturesque landscape that offer inspiring southern vistas of the axial garden with fountain. The gardens are superb and south-facing. Additional structures include a six-room coach house, an in-ground swimming pool and 1936 Art Moderne studio. The entire estate has been uniquely well preserved and maintained. It is a tranquil and quiet residence, yet steps from town, schools and the LF metra station. Bagatelle was a personal achievement of Bennett, who designed Chicago's iconic Michigan Avenue Bridge and Buckingham Fountain. He also co-authored the 1909 'Plan of Chicago' with Daniel Burnham. Bagatelle is on the National Register of Historic Places. This is certainly an important home to consider if you are looking for a very special residence.
