La Petite Chateau

930 Brittany Road, Highland Park, IL 60035


Located in Highland Park, Illinois, the Ames W. Ross house - also known as La Petite Chateau - is an excellent example of the Norman subtype of the French Eclectic style. Designed by architect Charles F. Klari Rabig and constructed in 1934, the structure features steeply pitched hipped roofs with flared ends and a polygonal tower, capped with a conical roof and located between the front and side sections. Hipped wall dormers are incorporated on the front bay, while gable dormers are situated on the side wing. Decorative half timbering is located on the front bay, while brick and stone quoin detailing accent the side wing. The tower features stone cladding, a polygonal pane window and an ogee arch entrance. The structure retains historic wood casement windows. La Petite Chateau is listed on the Illinois Historic Structures Survey and is now available for filming. Contact the host today to book it for your next production.
