Heading one block west over to Virginia Avenue (Compton Avenue gets squeezed out down in Carondelet), we now head south from Haven down to Loughborough, first on the west side.
The street is far more quiet than Michigan Avenue, and narrower. But there are some real great surprises, such as the two houses below.
This house’s interpretation of the Romanesque Revival is also interesting.
There are also more traditional Second Empire houses, though this one has a huge dormer in the middle of its Mansard roof.
Finally, there’s this tan brick corner storefront on the northeast corner of Virginia and Loughborough.
But there’s also this wonderful rare Italianate gable roofed house, which is in good shape.
There are also some nice Romanesque Revival apartment buildings, though the first one is shorn of its original cornice.
