Raber House

5760 S. Lafayette Avenue
Year Built: 1870
Designated a Chicago Landmark in 1996
From the Landmarks page:
" One of the city's few remaining pre-Fire of 1871 residences, this is a rare surviving example in the Englewood community of a large country estate. The Italianate-style brick residence, which is capped by a wooden cupola, was constructed by John Raber, a prominent area businessman, real-estate developer, and politician. The residence's original 6 acre grounds and gardens were so extensive that the house's initial address was on State Street
(then South Plank Road), one block to the east."
