About This Old House

Fabulous, historic, charming, one-of-a-kind home in a small, but fast-growing, community just outside of Scott AFB and St Louis, but located in Illinois. Known as The James C. Twiss House by architect George F. Barber (Barber and Klutz, Knoxville, TN) and built in 1907.

Plenty of space for a family with 5 large bedrooms, 2 full baths, remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances, office, formal dining room, foyer, nook, vestibule, office, wrap around porch with 3 stairways, rear porch, balcony, wood/tile/carpet flooring. All original wood doors/trim and 2 sets of pocket doors. 5 sets of Fabulous stained glass windows.

Newly remodeled attic with custom bath, loft (play room?), tv room, bedroom. Remodeled kitchen that retains the original built-in cabinetry, along with new custom solid cherry cabinets. Remodeled main bath with original clawfoot tub. Insulated, rewired, re-roofed, painted, newly decked porches, storm windows and $32,000 worth of custom COPPER gutters and a COPPER finial on the turret room.

Tons of cupboard space, including a Butler’s pantry. Laundry chute on main floor and 2nd floor. Original intercom system (copper tubes).

The foyer is to die for. Make a grand entrance every time you come home!

Bring your swing! The gazebo invites you to sit and swing, while sipping your favorite beverage and relaxing and enjoying the beautiful landscaping and flowers.

The garden shed has plenty of room for your riding mower and other necessary yard tools.
Or, just sit around the stone fire pit and toast marshmallows in the Fall.

A separate 2-car garage/shop has plenty of room for ‘both’ of your vehicles.

The original architectural plans have been handed down from owner to owner and the home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for architecture and it is filled with architecture. From the corbels to the parquet flooring, this house has it all. You won’t find another like it! If you want UNIQUE, you’ve found it!

Entertain, and impress, your friends and family! Dress it up for Christmas, or the Harvest!! Have fun and feel like the king and queen of your domain… all sitting on a corner lot that is 1/2 acre m/l.
