    Description

    Proudly showcasing one of Sycamore's magnificent historical homes, this 4,486 sq. ft. property boasts intricate detail while preserving its vintage charm. Covered wrap-a-round porch, 2-car barn, aggregate driveway, cobble-stone accents, newly replica playhouse and inviting deck welcome you. Foyer offers access to the exquisite private office with decorative fireplace and the stunning Living Room. 1888 marble surround gas lit fireplace, crown molding and hardwood flooring warm the heart of this lovely home. Majestic solid double arched wood doors invite you into the dining room presenting ornate chandelier, bay window and walk-in pantry. The gourmet kitchen hosts DeWils custom glazed cabinetry with dovetail and pull out drawers, gorgeous honed marble counter-top, eye-catching candelabra chandeliers, convection oven, 5-burn stove top, wainscoting wall detail and 10' ceiling. Walk-in pantry features Kohler sink and farm cupboard. Cloakroom offers a drop zone with stained glass window, hooks and closet. 1st level master suite comes equipped with direct access from covered porch... perfect master suite, guest suite or Airbnb option... a rare find! Breathtaking mill-work, original gas light chandelier, stained glass window, walk-in closet with built-in dresser/cupboard, wainscoting, tiered glass wall sconces and etched glass window add grace and beauty to this unique suite. A prior "phone room," the sitting area leads to the 3/4 bath with pedestal sink, tiled shower, custom floor tile, built-in drawers and mirrored cabinet. The library with bookshelves welcomes you to the 2nd level. 18'x13' laundry-craft room offers cabinets, sink and washer and dryer hook ups. 2nd master suite exhibits 6 windows, vintage wall sconce, walk-in closet with built-dresser and timeless hardware while having access to a full bath and 10'x6' towel room... another master suite retreat! Linen room and 3rd bath with white wainscoting, pedestal sink, wide shower and skylight complete this shared spa-like area. The 3rd level finished 43'x19' bonus space with 10 glass windows, 9' ceiling, bookshelves and bench exudes opportunity for special gatherings, a private office or creative art studio... a secret attic room to love and enjoy! Originally a small farmhouse built in 1870 by Alfred Sawyer family, this home was purchased in 1888 by Abram Ellwood, son of Rueben Ellwood, the first mayor of Sycamore. Ellwood added the back-half addition and fancied up the original house adding a Victorian flavor. Returned elaborate outhouse is a favorite playhouse with attic in the inviting backyard. 2-car barn garage displays loft doors, walk-up loft area and offers a garden shop. This is a one-of-a-kind Sycamore treasure!
