Although he designed several buildings, Fielder is mostly remembered for the exquisite interiors he designed for buildings done by other architects. He grew to be one of Chicago’s highest-profile interior designers. He served as a judge for professional contests of the Chicago Architectural Club, manufactured custom ‘highest quality’ woodwork and advocated the use of different styles in decorating the various rooms of a building and was a member of the American Institute of Architects.


Perched on 0.44 acres of professionally landscaped gardens, this three-storied fenced luxury residence has a total of 17 rooms, out of which 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. It features high-end amenities like which are perfectly blended into the classic design: all stainless steel kitchen appliances, dishwasher, dryer, freezer,oven/range, wine cooler, whirling pool, soaking tub, double shower, central air cooling system, elevator, security system and intercom.
The result of the design is an extraordinary glimpse into the unity of architecture and interior decoration. The picturesque grounds also include a private lot next to the home with blooming gardens, winding alleys and tall trees, adding to the uniqueness of this property.
