Best of all worlds: Charm, character and convenience

Want charm and solid architecture of a Victorian home built by turn-of-the-century craftsman with trim, flooring materials and woodworking skills that cannot be duplicated today? How about a home with a separate, private foyer entrance that can be used for a home office visitors without living area exposure or could function as a 5th bedroom including a walk-in closet on the first floor? Desire a full bathroom on the first floor, a large, formal dining room, extra living room to tailor to your needs or first floor laundry? With open staircase in front and servant's staircase into the kitchen in back, the 1st and 2nd floors offer 2,236 sq ft of living space.

Require the convenience of a full walk-out, clean basement with high ceilings, workshop, laundry sink and 2nd washer and dryer for "farm fresh" laundry? Wishing for a full walk-up 3rd-story attic with fantastic gable views on all sides that can be used for over 1,100 sq ft of additional storage, a bonus room or converted to a master bedroom suite?

The restored, not re-"muddled", home is located on beautiful, historic Lincoln Highway - a peaceful, paved state road. Drink your coffee or relax on the porch swing on the beautiful wrap-around porch, take a nap on the tree hammock, cookout on the private patio or read a book while enjoying the rolling hills from the barn loft. The peace and flexibility of use of the country but access to the conveniences of the city are all here. Please call for more information or to schedule a showing.

Location, location, location - history, history, history

Location important? Want it placed high in the country with rolling hill, countryside views on a manageable 5 acres that is Zoned Ag-1 with no close neighbors behind or beside the property. Want it with 3 enclosed, connected pastures that can be rotated or used for gardening? Need it close to recreation? Dixon offers a beautiful parks with public boat access to the Rock River. Various state parks are within an hour's drive. Also, within a few minutes is a marina with grill, the Midway Drive-In Theater (one of the last in the country), and big box stores and a mall. Only 15 minutes to I-88, 1 hour drive to Quad Cities, Rockford, and DeKalb and only 2 hours to Chicago.

So much history and Victorian architecture in this home including 100-year old mural; functioning pocket doors; transoms; etched-glass windows; carriage step; antique hardware; rainwater, gravity-fed tanks and pump; gas light fixtures and more. See the image of the barn tour guide that lists the historic circa 1891 barn features.

Land and good outbuildings galore

Want a property with multiple (3) enclosed, connected pastures that can be rotated or used for gardening? Do you need more than 3 car stalls that the 2 detached garages provide? Well, all of the outbuildings are in great condition, include new steel siding and roofs and are very functional. The dairy barn's space, which was featured in a century barn tour this year, has been tastefully opened up to allow for 7 more vehicles but still can be used for other storage/horses/hobbies. Just installed a new full staircase to the hay mow - perfect for barn dances and parties - and built a 3rd-story loft with patio door and amazing views for relaxation or workout area. Water is accessible in the milk house that also has mancave/motorcycle shed space which could be converted to chicken coop.

The 800 sq. foot corn crib has been gutted and enclosed with steel siding and roofing to make useful for equipment storage and/or year- round hobby workshop when using the wood burning stove. The open machine shed faces east and also shelters 4 boats, trailers etc.

Recent Improvements

Want the character of an older home but don't want to replace plumbing; insulation; porches; mechanicals; and electrical, siding and roofs on home and most outbuildings? We've already taken care of that for you!!! (update details available upon request)

This home has it all!!! If you appreciate the architecture of yesteryear, and are not persuaded by HGTV's push for open concept living space, then you will love the current owner's period-friendly updates, decor and antiques as well as the original footprint of the home.
