Fortune just voted West Chicago as #9 in the "25 Best Places to Live for Families" in Sept 2022 out of almost 2000 cities across the US! History buffs you have found your perfect home! So much gorgeous detail throughout this Victorian home that was built in 1864 and has been designated as a historic site. There was 1 addition added of a large eat in kitchen in the early 2000's. 10 foot ceilings throughtout the home, tin ceilings, amazing archways. 3 beautiful fireplaces, quarter-sawn hardwood floors, beautiful inlays, stunning velvet wallpaper, custom built-in's, the list goes on and on. When you enter the home through the screened in side entrance then to the left is your dining room (stop by and read the articles on the table) with built in hutch and it leads to the kitchen. The kitchen is huge and ready for your imagination! It opens up onto the deck and has great skylights that fill this room with tons of light. From the side door if you turn right then you walk into the large family room with the 4th bedroom off of that (or perfect office and it has access to the deck). The family room leads you to the living room with that velvet wallpaper. From there you go to the foyer and walk up stairs to the 2 full bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. There is a walkout basement and nice sized yard just under .25 acre. Walking distance to restaurants and the downtown West Chicago area as well as walking distance the train! The West Chicago Historical Society is right down the street and they have great information on the house as well. Home is being sold as-is but comes with 1 year Home Warranty!
