When this vintage home was built, the original builder built it facing the river! So much history! This unique and historic home is a full Split-level with four levels above grade (plus a basement and sub-basement!!!), hidden stairways, closets everywhere, and spectacular views. Situated on a private road with three other homes, the property is filled with gardens, nature, trees and local history. This home sits on almost 2 acres atop the Kishwaukee River with views of the river out most of the windows. Enter the home thru the updated kitchen, featuring custom Birch cabs and Quartz counters. The spacious kitchen is completely open to an a beautiful Family Room, which features wood burning fireplace with a full-wall brick facing with cool nooks. Go up four steps from the Family Room and you will find a gorgeous Dining Room and Living Room with sparkling vintage hardwood floors, and was once home to an old Kingston schoolhouse!!!

Have your morning coffee every morning watching kayakers up and down the river! Rounding out this level is a full bath and spacious BR2 with dual walk-in closets! This oversized BR is nice and isolated and could easily be an in-law arrangement, main floor master, or simply BR2 for that teenager. Go up a few more stairs and you will find a spacious master, with three walk-in closets, two cedar-lined trunks, and a full wall of windows overlooking the river. The fourth level features BR3 with a huge sitting room attached that could be a baby's room, play room, dressing room, BR4 or the biggest closet your daughter will ever have! Every room in this home is over-sized!! The basement provides ample storage and the sub-basement will make a pretty cool party bar...both await your imagination!!! Need a place for your Man-Toys?
