Property Description

This classic 1910ish American Foursquare is located on a quiet street in the Elgin Historic District, a stately home that features a welcoming front porch and a large, private backyard. It has served the homeowners well for more than 30 years, but it is now time to find another family to enjoy all of its traditional charm. There's really nothing to concern a new owner in terms of the exterior, as the stucco was recently painted and will last many years. The inside is full of turn-of-the-century appeal -- hardwood floors (oak on the first floor, maple on the second), original wood trim, vintage light fixtures, special windows, french doors, a vintage tub and toilet. The walk-up attic could be finished to create even more cozy living space. The kitchen has been renovated to add cabinets and a soapstone counter, as well as a series of new windows, allowing light to flood the space. Maybe the best place to relax would be in the sunroom, or out on the pleasant patio/deck space in the backyard. Welcome to 485 Mary Place.
