Designed in 1923 by Louis R Christie, Architect, out of Glen Ellyn, and made into a charming real-life two-story cottage, right out of a children's story book in 1924 for Edward F Hutchcraft, Esq. They had the house built following the plans almost exactly, right down to the window boxes, shutters, front trellis, and the vitrified green Imperial French Tile roof. Set in an absolutely perfect location, it's one block off downtown Wheaton and essentially across the street from Memorial Park with it's recent multi-million dollar remodel and a Summer-long schedule of music, entertainment, and events. You can walk to the train station, (really you can), the elementary, and the middle schools. Surrounded by much more expensive homes, this affordable house oozes vintage charm, and warmth, it creates a next-level of coziness that you will absolutely fall in love with. You will notice a lot of original character such as picture frame mouldings and some light fixtures mixed with some more modern updates such as a multi-jet shower spa bath in a travertine wetroom setting. The house has central A/C added in the attic. The basement has radiant heat throughout the polished concrete flooring. Property is owned by a licensed Illinois Real Estate Agent. Boiler and air conditioning are about 10 years old, compressor is new. Roof is original, we typically have it inspected annually by professionals specializing in tile roofing.
