Active / MLS #11255270 / Single Family / Sycamore
This original South School building has been converted into a one-of-a-kind 5 bedroom, 5.1 bath home. There is something unique in every room in this home. The expansive foyer leads you to the kitchen, living room, or basement. The main level has a first-floor laundry room plumbed for a stackable washer and dryer and room for a folding table, a half-bath, and a beautifully remodeled kitchen with custom cabinetry, granite countertops, a built-in oven, gas cooktop, ceramic tile flooring, and a pantry with a door that looks like it may have been from the schoolhouse. Original brick remains throughout most of the rooms in the home to retain the feel of the schoolhouse. The eating area /breakfast room has a coffee/internet bar located at a brick wall, plenty of space for a large table, and many windows allowing the sun to radiate this area. There is also a custom card table in this room. The mudroom at the side entrance has school lockers for coats, gloves, etc. The office with a lot of shelving can be converted into a walk-through closet and is located right next to the master suite. The master suite has a private deck overlooking the professionally landscaped yard. This room also has many windows for viewing the yard at different angles. The master bathroom has a separate shower and a soaker tub, a separate makeup vanity, and a copper sink. The dining room adjoins the kitchen and has a workable fountain on the wall. There is also a custom shelving unit for china or whatever you wish to store inside. Hardwood is located in the foyer, eating area, and dining room. The living room has a unique wooden ceiling, a gas stove, and a bar nook or sitting room that overlooks the living room area. There is also a view of the spiral staircase. Level four is where most of the bedrooms are located. Bedroom 2 has a private bath with a clawfoot tub surrounded by a tiled wall, custom vanity made out of a Singer sewing machine, stairs to a private "suite" and a walk-in closet that overlooks the living room. Bedrooms 3 and 4 both have a unique shelf overlooking the rooms themselves. Awesome space for those who love to decorate. Bedroom 4 has a tin ceiling and a walk-in closet. The hall bath has a door as one of the shower walls and custom vanity. The bedroom doors on this level are made to look as though they were original schoolhouse doors. The second laundry room is on this level as well. The 5th bedroom, which can also be another suite, has a private bathroom with a wooden sink, tiled shower, and a "game room" or den area. The spiral staircase leads one up to the 5th bedroom on the 5th level of the home. This room has a large cedar closet, a brick wall and overlooks the backyard. The basement has the original schoolhouse bathroom that has now been converted to a "modern" day full bath. There is a bonus room or a hangout room in the basement, an exercise room or rec room, an unfinished area for storage, and a shop for those who have hobbies or love to tinker. There is a two-car attached garage (no interior access), an extra-long driveway, and a lovingly professionally landscaped backyard with a brick paver patio and a built-in grill. You will think you are in your own private retreat. This home is a great family and entertaining home. It can be an Airbnb home, a bed and breakfast, or your family's next home! The possibilities are endless. The current owners poured their hearts and souls into making this a family home with loving touches everywhere. Beautifully decorated and uniquely designed. There is access to the bell tower too! The roof is only 14 years new. There are too many details to outline here. Additional information to come listing all renovations. Close to downtown Sycamore and walking distance to where one can enjoy the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival and Parade. Easy access to Route 64 and Peace Road, close to schools and shopping. If a one-of-a-kind home is on your mind, this one is a definite must-see kind of home. See video for a tour.
