Property Description

Owner has moved to his dream come true home in the country and is moving from this large 3028 square foot home on extra large corner lot...which features three lots; almost over to the edge of home on West side. As you pull in the drive, check out the large garage at the back of the lot. Fenced (added in 2020) side yard. Wouldn't it be grand to have your own screened in porch on those rainy days. Enter into the front door and be awed by the beauty of the woodwork. Beautiful Open staircase. Formal living room with lead glass window; hugh family room w fireplace and check out the details in the ceiling...which has been said that it was added way back when. Pocket doors. Dining room with new lighting and built in china cabinet. There is also a formal dining room (the owners used as a bedroom). Bath on both levels. Several detailed windows throughout the home. Washer and electric dryer off kitchen area for convenience. Owner leaving stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave - which are approximately two years old. On the main level, one room has new drywall. Floors have been redone on main level. Many of the light fixtures have been changed (more matching lights in the attic area) Owner has left quite abit of old trim/wood that goes with the home. There is a window unit on the main level which cooled the main level for this family. Travel to the upstairs and check out the size of the bedrooms. One bedroom has a fireplace. This owner has never used the fireplaces; so they are being conveyed as is. The back bedroom lets the lights shine in. There are a couple small holes in the wall where the previous owner has a massive train set up in this room and the trains would travel behind the scenes...used as bedroom. Second kitchen has been removed. Room designated as library was used as a bedroom on the main level. Walk up attic area. Owner has added extra plug ins - they were going to convert to a movie theatre but it never got finished. Would make a great hide-away or another bedroom if you would so choose. Basement presents alot of storage as would the attic if you would like. The carriage garage has a walk up to the upstairs. There is no electric in the garage area. It would be awesome to meet up with someone who knows alot of the history on this home. Many other nice victorian homes line this street. Ready to move in; make your changes. Welcome home to Paxton Illinois. Court records show 1910 Pin #: 11-14-07-482-006 Legal: Lots 1,2, and 3 Block D Pells Addition West.
