When one comes into Fayette Park, the hustle and bustle of life evaporates. Standing sentinel at the entrance to the park, 417 embodies the Romanesque style of the neighborhood. Attributed to architects Aldenburg & Scott, the home was first occupied by Daniel Swigert, a renowned horseman. Lavishly trimmed with brick, wood, and terra-cotta, the exterior of the home is dominated by a three story round tower. Details such as a roaring lion, a floral frieze, and an arched window adorned by a stone sunburst show the care that went into the construction. Inside, the front hall is trimmed in bog oak and centered around an intricately carved staircase. Beautiful, original wood trim still remains with the library featuring walnut, the parlor birds-eye maple, and the dining room mahogany. Parquet floors laid out in a mesmerizing pattern formed from four woods are featured in multiple rooms. Historic details include a vintage steam shower, gas chandeliers, and Roman Style porcelain bath tubs.
