Ready for Its Next CustodiansSince its completion more than a century ago, the home has had only three owners: the Booth family, Northwestern University, and Sonia and Ted Bloch, who bought it in 1967. According to Sonia, the house had been intended for use as a conference center for Northwestern, but the university wound up putting it on the market. “It was completely vacant when we saw it. It had ragged carpets, and none of the light fixtures worked,” she says. “To some people, it was ugly, but to me, it was gorgeous.” The Blochs got to work restoring the house to its original glory.

次の住人を待ちながら 100年以上前に完成して以来、この家のオーナーとなったのは3組だけだ。ブース家、ノースウェスタン大学、そして1967年に購入したソニア&テッド・ブロック夫妻である。ソニアさんによると、ノースウェスタン大学はコンファレンス施設として使う予定だったが、ふたたび市場に出すことになったのだと言う。「私たちが見学に来たときには、まったく空っぽの状態でした。カーペットは傷んで、照明器具もすべて壊れていました」とソニアさんは言う。「ほかの人は醜い物件だと思ったかもしれませんが、私はすごく美しいと感じたんです。」ブロック夫妻は修復に取り組み、オリジナルの優美な姿によみがえらせた。
