The Ralph H. Poole house is said to be the first of David Adler's masterpieces, having been constructed between 1911-14 in collaboration with Henry Dangler and landscape designed by Fredrick Law Olmstead but never executed. Adler is said to have brought the Loire Valley to the Illinois prairie. One is immediately struck by the symmetry, balance and proportion both inside and out. Completely restored and enhanced, plumbing, electrical, chimneys, landscape, pool and coachhouse, this home has been brought back from to ruin to its current splendor. Enter the spacious gallery which is anchored by the sweeping limestone staircase, checker marble floor and wheat and chaff plaster relief on the walls. The first floor rooms are arranged in enfilade across the entire west facade of the building, making entertaining a breeze.
