Multi-level Living in a Benton Park Victorian
5 Beds, 4 Full Baths, 5,400 sqft, 3-car Garage
This majestic brick Victorian in Benton Park does not disappoint! A Swiss immigrant named Josua Risch, who was married to a Prussian woman, gave the building its unique character. He built it in phases, likely incorporating earlier, smaller brick structures, to create the masterpiece that stands today. The city directory of 1867 states his profession as a confectioner and he called this piece of Benton Park home for 4 decades. Today the home is completely renovated with newer systems and has been smartly laid out for modern living. The 1st floor has a full bath, kitchenette, and bedroom allowing it to be used as a main floor Master Suite or the perfect in-law suite. This is one of the more flexible floor plans we’ve ever seen! 314-366-0454 for more information.
