Beautiful, 3500 sq. ft., 2-story farmhouse built in 1847 features heart pine floors, 3 sets of pocket doors, large windows, finely crafted hardware including richly detailed, engraved solid brass door plates, door knobs and torpedo hinges. The house is great for entertaining, with wide doorways and ample space without feeling cavernous. 40 miles West of Chicago (20 minutes from the train station), the house sits up high on a large corner lot and enjoys close proximity to a private pool, golf course and many trails and forest preserves.
