H. P. Young House (1895)
334 North Kenilworth Avenue

East view from Kenilworth Avenue
With its high-pitched gable roofs, pointed windows in the attic, diamond pane glass windows, and other historic details, Wright's design of this house for purchasing agent H. P. Young appears strongly influenced by his concurrent ideas for the Nathan Moore House in the "Medieval Revival" style.
