Property Description

Designed with distinction by Mortimer Cleveland in 1923, this Highland Park home will impress you in every way! This home was built for Mrs. Anna Black, the widow of James Black, founder of Black’s Department Store. It’s described as Italian Renaissance which is unique to Waterloo and was featured on the Grout Museum’s Tour of Classic Homes in August of 2018. High style and historic sophistication meets rare modern updates. The front of the home features multicolored rough wire-cut bricks with chocolate mortar and original wooden trellises. Make your way to the side entrance off the porte cochère into the tiled foyer. Entering the foyer your eyes will be drawn to the rounded ceiling and the archway to the stairs. First room to take in and savor is the library which has gorgeous shelving and view of the front yard. Enjoy the abundant light filtering in from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the library and living room and additional beams of light from the large arched window on the staircase landing. The original hardwood flooring throughout the house is white oak. The spacious light filled living room features a gas fireplace and french doors to the three seasons porch. Adjoining the living room find the formal dining room which also has french doors to the three seasons porch. The three seasons porch has a heated fan for the cooler days and will be the perfect place to begin or end each day.

A half bath in the hallway finishes the main floor. Walk up the wide double back staircase to the expansive second level. Here you will enjoy four bedrooms all featuring the white oak floors and countless built-ins. The full hallway bathroom features the original tub which has been maintained well throughout the years.
