A homesteader's dream! Come tour this unique 7.5 acre farmette with it's refurbished 1855 open concept 4bed/2bath farmhouse. The farmhouse runs on central air, well water, and a septic system. Custom staircase and reclaimed wood trim and flooring throughout. Enormous amount of storage with built-in cabinetry or open shelving in nearly every room. On each floor: two bedrooms that share a Jack-and Jill closet, one full bathroom with custom cabinetry, and double-sink with claw foot tub, and a full living room. The second story boasts lofted ceilings, a cozy bathroom with radiant floor heating as well as a vanity area, and a quaint sleeping loft. Main floor includes a large, bright country kitchen with enormous attached pantry/mud room with access to the outdoors and basement. Kitchen includes refrigerator, dishwasher, heavy duty garbage disposal, Dekton countertops, and double oven with a 5-burner gas stovetop. The basement holds a dedicated laundry area with storage cabinet and folding table, huge deep freezer, two large storage areas, and Dorothy doors directly to the outdoors. The exterior of the home is maintenance-free with Hardie board siding, a new roof 5 years ago, and a covered cedar wraparound porch! Detached 3-car garage with three additional outdoor spaces on the concrete slab, and lots of extra parking along the gravel driveway. There is also a heated/air conditioned entertainment or office outbuilding. All outbuildings have been refurbished and recently installed metal roofs. Four-bay machine shed with power access, corn crib, and 1855 dairy and hay barn with milk house also have been recently painted. The property features 3.5 acres of native Illinois prairie wildflowers and a grove of native burr oak trees, with a winding 1/3 mile walking trail throughout. An alley of maple trees welcome you as you ascend the gravel drive, and fruit trees are growing out behind the barn. Many events and weddings held in the barn. The entire property has been professionally landscaped and maintained, including more than 3,000 naturalized daffodils, tulips and perennials, and a stunning landscape illumination system. Swing in the hammock beneath the maple trees in the shade, sip coffee to bird songs in the morning, or take in the sunset over the hill while the crickets chirp on a simmering evening. Listen to the gurgle of the water fountain while you grill out on those holiday weekends or build a fire on the antique brick patio in the fall. So much to see and do on this lovely property that you must come see it for yourself! A preferred lender offers a reduced interest rate for this listing.
