The current owner saw a chance to save this home last year, and she has been busy ever since restoring and updating it into something truly impressive. The inviting wraparound porch (possibly the largest porch in western Illinois?) greets you before you enter the front hall and living room. Inside you’ll find century-old parquet floors, gorgeous dark woodwork, Greek columns, a dining room with ceiling beams and a built-in buffet, and a massive stairway with virgin quarter-sawn oak. With 5 bedrooms, this home also has potential to be turned into an Airbnb, bed & breakfast, or boarding house. The kindhearted owner has an engaging story to tell about this house — and she’s excited you’re someone who loves older homes as much as she does.
