Welcome! Take a step back in time to this 1883 Victorian near all that is great in Historic Oak Park. This truly grand home has been lovingly cared for and has been in the same family for forty plus years. Gorgeous bullseye trim work frames the exterior and interior. 1800's charm and character are found the moment you enter the foyer, which features the original bannister and custom designed flooring. The home unfolds from the foyer through French doors to the music room or through the open doorway into the spacious 31-foot living room with brick fireplace. The fireplace in the music room showcases original mantel and tiles and was also lovingly restored. The spacious dining room features an original, beautiful inlaid hardwood floor. The first floor also includes an island kitchen, separate breakfast room, family room, powder room and enclosed rear porch.
