Six ideal homes? Elegant and easy to live in, these houses sample the genius of a man who’s work defined luxury on Chicago’s North Shore. All, save “Pierremont” the Charles Stonehill Residence (Adler’s first commission), are extant & in private hands today. Favorite bits? Those wonderful overmantles! Also, the fauns & rams flanking the drives of the Hamill & Stonehill Residences respectively!
