Step into the past and witness the stunning restoration and revitalization of a 1932 Greek Revival home, originally designed by renowned architect David Adler. The original owners were Edison Dick, son of A.B. Dick, inventor of the mimeograph, and Jane Warner Dick, a long-time Lake Forest resident, civic leader, and social welfare advocate. They lived in the house from 1935-1997.

Today, the current owners intend to continue the stewardship of the property while incorporating updates for modern living. With the help of original drawings, details, and proposed upgrades by David Adler, BBA Architects will maintain the existing character of the structure and property and transform the existing east first-floor rooms to the level of formality and detail of the original public spaces. Intended updates include expanding the existing kitchen, family room, and breakfast room, axially aligning the layout with the existing exterior, and constructing a new detached two-car garage inspired by the existing building's materials and details that will provide ample car and bike storage.
