Historic home lovers dream of having the kind of records this Indian Village home still has. Not only was it designed as part of a series by Albert Kahn, but the owners currently have blueprints and original mimeographed instructions to the Kahn construction team. The owners apparently also have extensive land records dating back to the early 1700’s; the new owners will receive all of these.

The 1905 house was first occupied by John Owen, heir to the Cook Family Farms—the ribbon farm that became the historic neighborhood of Indian Village. This home on Iroquois, along with 1424 and 1410, were designed on spec by Kahn, who wanted to explore different finishes. They have similar floor plans, but the homes are different sizes and with different exterior finishes.

This Tudor Revival retains its elegant details, with modern conveniences. It comes in at 4,000 square feet, with seven bedrooms, three full and two half baths, a sun room, a butler’s pantry, a built-in 1905 Bohn Syphon icebox, a library, French doors, and lovely wood trim. Also find a newer three-car garage outside, plus a large backyard. This house has been on the Indian Village home and garden tour numerous times and it’s listed through E’toile Libbett at Starlite Properties.
