The style of this charming home has been described in many ways, including high victorian, eclectic, and late picturesque. Basically, it's an "anything goes" style, which is appropriate, since it was designed by Elgin builder Henry Jensen for himself. The home boasts features such as protruding balconies, overhanging gables, towers, turrets, and lavish ornamentation. An equally impressive coach house was destroyed by fire in 1991.
