I was in this house when it was last for sale. It is stunning for such a small dwelling. The newspaper articles I found on it claimed that the original Owners, one of whom was a celebrated artist, designed the house themselves.
Chris, Thanks for the info. Hershey’s notes say that he designed a home on this street and, to my eyes, 103 looked like the most likely possibility. It’s still a mystery.
This home was owned and occupied by my uncle and aunt Wesley Kaiser and Helen (nee Strauchen ) Kaiser from at least 1964 until the mid 1980’s. I was a guest in this home many times in the 1960’s -it was spectacular at the time.Their only son, Kent Kaiser (last known address Spencer Rd. Irondequoit )would certainly have more information about this home.
Hope this helps.
We live in 137 Glenview which is a Hershey home (according to the real estate info from 2007 when we bought it) built in 1962. We’ve often wondered if 103 was also a Hershey house!
Thank you Rachel for the information. I’ve added your house to the site.
