This stately home brick home in a residential historic district in Sparta IL.  Entering the front door, the unique hardwood floors in the foyer plus a large beautiful staircase definitely capture your attention.   Large rooms, tall ceilings with transoms above some unique doors is what gives this home charm.  This kitchen has a cast iron sink, and two natural gas oven/stove units to help prep for large gatherings, plus walk in pantry.   There is custom built in shelving in the dining room & the living room. Beautiful fireplaces (non-functioning)  that remind you of the time period of the home.  The main level bath has a clawfoot tub.  Main level laundry off the back porch with windows facing the yard. The 2nd level has 2 very large bedrooms, one of which has a large walk-in closet and the other has a unique storage space above the kitchen in which I could picture a child making their own game room. The bathroom on the 2nd level is very unique, with a commode, vanity and shower plus a set of stairs that lead to the third level space that has been used as a bedroom.   Detached garage.   Large porches that were rebuilt recently with upgraded materials.     This large yard also is accented with a unique wrought iron fence.  Details
