Enjoy true country life while living in town! This property is one that you will not see for sale very often. A historic home on almost 5 acres in the Jacksonville Township. The primary photo is as it was constructed in about 1870. It is viewing it facing West and Lafayette still deviates around the property as it did back then. One might want to use it to keep as a large private estate or one might choose to take advantage of the many development opportunities that this property offers. The fact that this property is accessible from 3 sides makes it a developer's dream! Short driveways/power & gas services for any new construction! Another point for you developers is that the empty corner lot at Westgate & Lafayette has been built up above grade with dirt that was dug from under the train viaduct just North of this property. You used to have to wait for trains to get to Passavant Hospital and when the underpass was constructed & we allowed them to bring the fill dirt to this property for future use. I will soon be determining the diameter of the water handling structure that one would need to fill the ditch with that runs through this lot and I will post it then. (It is a 6' wide and 4' tall concrete box culvert. But be assured there is adequate dirt here to make the whole corner level once the water structure is installed. This historic home was built by the Strawn Family as a suburban home. Their main house was what is now the Strawn Art Gallery. Mr. Strawn was a cattle baron and could leave this house and ride to Springfield IL without ever leaving his property. The home sports tall ceilings, large rooms, hardwood floors, and an auxiliary corn heating boiler system. A full unfinished basement and a full attic with flooring for storage or future additional living space. The house is currently empty and we are cleaning & painting to prepare it for the market. New water supply in 2005. New sewer in 2007. Seamless gutters, Aluminum soffit/fascia/siding/storm windows etc. so 90percent maintenance free. The garage is huge and totally insulated with a fully floored attic for storage. Pegboard everywhere inside. The power run that this house is fed by goes on to the hospital so outages are non-existent. At night you will hear the resident owls hoot as they enjoy the tall trees. Every evening there is a parade of bats that keep the mosquitos in check. We even have our own honey bee hive in one of the old trees! Give us a call to talk about this wonderful property!
