Near Original Victorian
Welcome to Cairo Illinois. Cairo is a small town located at the point where the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers meet. The town has suffered immensely from political corruption. But this special area of America where the two mighty rivers meet is changing. People can sit on their porches and listen to the tugboats work.
This is a great 2 story (with stairs to third floor which could be used plus a basement) near original Victorian on the avenue with the other great homes of Cairo's colorful past.
This home has 2 parlors with fireplaces which still have their original tile and tall oak mantles. The fireplace in the first parlor has a fireplace insert.
The foyer has the original open staircase to the second floor. The main door has oval, beveled glass.
All the trim inside is oak, even on the second floor. The kitchen has been updated with both a breakfast nook and eating area. The formal dining room has a built-in oak china cabinet.
There are 3+ bdrms upstairs and bath with original claw foot tub. The full bath on the main floor has a shower. The side porch off the kitchen has been converted to a laundry room.
