By
Real Estate Agent with Dave Perry-Miller & Associates

 

Designed by architect Hal Thompson and built in 1929, 4236 Armstrong Parkway is one of Highland Park’s most precious heritage residences. The three-story mansion, set back from the prestigious parkway on a wide lawn, has benefited from a careful and intelligent restoration that has brought it to its present grandeur.

This exceptional residence is a remarkable celebration of 18th century France in its grandest epoch.Originally offered for $6,200,000, this stately home is now $4,950,000. 

Inside this prime offering is a sumptuous, richly hued setting showcasing beautiful and ornamental details typical of its epoch. There are Ionic columns, elaborate custom cornices, glazed woodwork, antique paneling, hardwood and marble flooring, custom-made silk panels, walls of hand-painted floral scenes, upholstery and exotic mirrors. 

Builder Steve Snyder and designer Reagan Caraway added to the home’s architectural interest with iron balustrades, stacked moldings, elaborate cornices and columns, exquisite bronze door handles and matching hinges and even custom curtain pockets for many of the windows. A master artisan spent eight years painting walls, glazing woodwork and refinishing furniture to achieve the specialized results.
