1850's Italianate

Situated in a strong growing community, this home is located on almost 2 acres of park like manicured yard. In fact, it is the only home on the entire city block, the convenience of in town living with the seclusion of a country estate. This home has all of the features you would expect from this era. High ceilings, hardwood floors, marble fireplace, grand entry stairway, formal dining room with chandelier, formal parlor,3 exterior porches, the list goes on.

One of the attics was remodeled years ago into a guest apartment with private exterior entrance. Custom window treatments, storm windows and shutters adorn the original casement windows. Wide ornate original woodwork throughout, some natural,( I think it may be either rosewood or flame mahogany) and some traditionally painted.

All in all, this home has no comparison in the area. Sandwich is a vibrant community with good schools, a thriving specialty retail environment, low crime and peaceful Midwestern setting. An easy commute to Chicago and primary airports, it is located only 60 miles from the loop. There is no question this could be considered for use as a B&B or another creative purpose.
