Own a piece of history. The Glassburn home, located in Tampico, IL (also the birthplace of President Ronald Reagan), was the home of A.t. Glassburn, the son of J. W. Glassburn, the founder of the village in 1861 and co-founder of the Tampico Bank in 1882. This elegant 5 bedroom Victorian, built in 1890, has been lovingly restored to its original beauty over the last several years. The glowing hardwood floors and trim have been stripped, repaired, and refinished. The columned front entry leads into a sunny foyer with an open staircase leading to the second floor and features a window seat on the first landing. There are French doors leading into the living room which features both leaded glass windows and a turret window. The family room offers a gas fireplace with the original hearth and tiling. The dining room offers a chandelier accented by plaster casting and Oak Victorian panels which continue throughout the home. The downstairs bath features a clawfoot tub with a pink interior finish plus a new toilet and vanity. The kitchen features a floor to ceiling cupboard and an ornate tin ceiling. There is also a large pantry and a mud room. Upstairs you will find 4 large remodeled bedrooms, an office that walks out onto the 9x16 veranda, and a bathroom also with a clawfoot tub, new toilet, and new vanity. There is also a laundry chute and the stairs to the approx. 1400 sq. ft. floored attic that is separated into several rooms and is ready to be finished. There is also a full partially finished basement, 2 new furnaces, new central air, and new wiring plus a full fenced backyard.
