Property Description

This historic Colonial Revival three story all brick home was constructed in 1918 by Bert Nelson, one of Sycamore's most prolific builders, for his own family. This three-story house combines the charm of curved arches, solid construction of a house with thick plaster walls, and hardwood flooring with later upgrades all the way from 200 amp electrical service to an added in-ground swimming pool, pool house with top balcony, a meditation garden, and large backyard filled with seasonal planting. You step into the entryway with redone stairway and a central carpet runner leading to second level. On the main floor you enter the living room, reading area, dining room, kitchen with a darling breakfast alcove, and enclosed side-porch area through curved archways. There is even a master suite with dressing room, vanity, and multiple closets that opens to large adjacent bathroom with wonderful black and white checkered ceramic tile flooring and a large newer shower with all-glass front. The newer gas hot water boiler provides quiet, efficient, even heat throughout the house. There are 3 bedrooms on the second floor and a finished attic bedroom with amazing hidden storage spaces on both sides of this spacious bedroom. In the basement there is a well-kept sauna, large room with boiler at one end, a laundry area, toilet and shower, and a room with a wall of storage cupboards with bookcases lining 2 walls that used as an office. Seldom do you fine so much usable space in the basement of an older home.
