Greene Valley Manor of Illinois
The architecture is typical of Pre-Federal Design as all the rooms are of long rectangular style, with dentils woodwork and doors in the same matching style; double hung windows, and the famous "skylight" windows around the front door... very typical of the period. Beautifully graced staircase with railing that greets one at the entrance. 5 bedrooms including 1st floor master suite with whirlpool bath. All new stainless steel appliances in gourmet kitchen. New furnace with efficient hot water heater.Golden oak floors preserved as a step back into history! 5 gardens on this 1.78 acre mini estate graced with 1400 ft. semi-circular drive. Historical records show Captain Lewis Hormell took almost 9 years to build. 2 fireplaces, 1 in dining area where early settlers cooked their meals.The original well and water pump of where the soldiers horses would water, is still on the property today. "It has been reported by word of mouth of the original townspeople, that they remember the caisson wagons coming through the brick gates and unloading the caissons for the soldiers, encamped on the five acre front lawn.We know that covered wagons with horses don't back up easily, therefore the semi-circular drive, still exactly the same today.
