Description

Beautiful historic home with modern amenities. Don’t miss this chance to own a piece of history at a reasonable price! Built in 1870 by James W. Stevens, builder of the Stevens Hotel in Chicago (now the Chicago Hilton) and grandfather of the late Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, this large 4-bedroom home boasts many original features including two marble fireplaces, pocket doors, hand-carved wooden staircase, window transoms, and original hardwoods in most rooms. The kitchen is updated with newer appliances, tons of storage, ceramic tile flooring, and new windows. Both baths are updated, and there is a spacious laundry room. The house has heating and air conditioning, and upstairs, the main bedroom has a newly installed split air conditioning unit. 12-foot ceilings and large windows throughout the house provide lots of natural light. Large closets, a full attic, and surprising nooks and crannies throughout the house offer plenty of storage. Back deck is new and spacious, and backyard has new privacy fence. The two-car garage has extra space for storage and work, and the corner lot provides extra yard space. Colchester is 5 minutes from beautiful Argyle Lake State park and 10 minutes from quaint Macomb. The current owners love this home and know that you will, too!
