More About This House

This is a rare opportunity to own one of the most stately, impressive houses on North State St in beautiful Monticello, IL. This historic home built in 1906 radiates the grandeur & splendor of that place & time, but yet still feels so comforting & livable. Located on historic N State St, nicknamed 'Millionaires Row' when Monticello was home to Dr. Caldwell's Pepsin Syrup and named one of the 'patent medicine capitals of the world'.

As you approach the home; you will be drawn in by a nearly 800 square foot front porch that expands the entire width of the house & then some. Imagine starting your day sipping coffee on this porch and welcoming the day.

As you enter the home there is a separate vestibule with 2 built-ins for coats, umbrellas & shoes. Then enter into a grand foyer which boasts 10 foot ceilings, pocket doors leading to the dining room & living room and a beautiful staircase with original woodwork leading to the second level.

The large living room features leaded glass windows & transoms, 10 foot ceilings, a gas fireplace with original tile & woodwork, thick crown molding and hardwood floors. A den or office sets just off the living room & features a single pocket door to enter, an entire wall of built-in glass bookcases, leaded glass windows, hardwood floors and a half bath. This is a wonderful & private spot to work from home with all the natural sunlight flooding the south windows.

If you like to entertain or just have large family dinners - the dining room is sure to please at 15 ft x 26 ft. Enjoy hardwood floors, tall beamed ceilings, unique wainscoting, leaded windows and a swinging door to the kitchen.

If you enjoy the original charm of older homes; you will certainly enjoy the 2 original butler pantries with floor to ceiling storage. The kitchen was updated along the way to feature all the necessary amenities. Enjoy breakfast or casual dinners in the sunlit addition off the kitchen.

The second story offers a large master bedroom with 2 walk-in closets, fireplace and full bath.

The 5 foot wide hallway leads to 3 good sized bedrooms, also with large closets. The 5th bedroom may have been the maid quarters. It sets just off the back stairway and is complete with a half bath.

The walk-up attic offers approximately 1150 square feet of unfinished opportunity with access to the 'widow's walk' , featuring a hydraulic skylight for entry.

Unusual for this age house is a 906 SqFt finished family room in the basement.

This is a beautiful home ready for a new owner to love it.
