Elgin Vintage Beauty, located in the Spring-Douglas Historic District, Elgin's Gold Coast. Completely restored 1888 Queen Anne home with 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths on a large, fenced corner lot. Not only is this a spectacular restoration but it is in Elgin's most desireable historic neighborhood. Owners took over a year to restore this beauty with lots of attention to detail. Three porches restored to recreate the original design. Nine-color exterior demands attention as a Painted Lady.

Library/office on the main floor. Refinished original hardwood floors and restored mouldings, hardware and doors. Two fireplaces. Incredible new, expanded kitchen, with a vintage look and all the modern conveniences. Three completely new bathrooms all have appropriate vintage fixtures; one with a walk-in shower. Five spacious bedrooms upstairs (one adaptable as a laundry room), all with larger closets. Living space is 2950 sq.ft., not counting large baths, large closets and large halls. House is a 2,000 sq.ft. footprint. Screened three-season room off of big two-car garage. Large basement, and big, tall walk-up attic, with ample space ready to finish.
