Stunning Home in Northwest IL

Perhaps one of the most stunningly situated homes in Northwest IL. This single-family home located on top of a cliff over-looking Cedar Creek and the expansive 20 acres, was built in 1883 by John Addams, whose sister was the historical figure Jane Addams. The home has been completely renovated including new roof, siding, plumbing, electrical and HVAC. The rehab was completed in 2018. There are many spectacular features that accentuate the character, with nearly 10ft ceilings on the main level and nearly 9ft upstairs. The dining room, living room, and master bath has beautiful large bay windows that carry all of the way up stairs to the 3 bedrooms. At the main entry you are greeted with the original double doors which open into the Great Room where you will find the original grand staircase. Spacious kitchen with a large pantry, features a dining nook that overlooks the cliff. The once sun room is now the luxurious Master Suite with windows on 3 walls, designed to capture the views and enhance the living space.  The large master bath has a separate toilet room, 2 separate vanities, a free standing jacuzzi tub and an oversized walk-in shower with one rain and two multifunction shower heads. The custom designed walk-in closet is exceptional. The main upper level features 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The back of the home upper level has a spare room and office. At the bottom of those stairs off of the kitchen is another full bath. The property features: 20 wooded acres, a barn and a train caboose and paved driveway. Most home furnishings are available for sale
