Oh Deer! A Fearfully Charming Stone Cottage For Sale
Oh deer! I am afraid I found a fearfully charming stone cottage for sale filled with lions and tigers and bears, oh my. Well, I saw a cougar, not a tiger. It’s a stone cottage dream on the outside. Inside, I am not so sure.
If you’re an outdoorsman who likes taxidermy, this is the place for you to see. Of course the stuffed deer, bear, and lion might not come with the home if you move in. There is a delightful side to this. Get this! In the backyard, there is a working train big enough for adults and little kids to ride in complete with real looking railroad crossings. Adorable! I hope the train comes with the house. This house keeps getting more and more interesting.
Look past the prying eyes, and this charming stone cottage for sale in River Forest, IL (a sought after suburb of Chicago) is actually extremely nice.
It has an old world storybook look, The listing says it’s “over 6000 square feet plus has a 2 bedroom Coach House on the near acre of waterfalls. ” Wanna see the lion, cougar and bear?
Big enough area to house a bear!
I think that is a bison head? Look past the taxidermy and the brick fireplace is awesome. This could be a fantastic room. Is this too many deer antlers?…
Guess not, plus a cougar. My husband likes to hunt so this will make him happy to see.
So far all the rooms are ginormous and fit for an African Safari gathering.
Here starts the charming part like the sunroom
Full of character relaxed kitchen
Great bones with arched built-ins and french doors.
Unexpected railroad tracks to take a ride around the property on the train.
Saved the best for last! I am imaging fun parties and memories with this unusual train ride on the property.
The home also has a fur vault, sauna room, steam room, indoor whirlpool and butler pantries. See more photos of this charming stone cottage for sale on Coldwell Banker
Have a great day. Tomorrow is another Charming Home Story.
Did you see this Spanish Style Ranch?
I love the train in the back yard, I might like to keep that especially for little kids, OMG they would love it, but the animals would scare me at night for sure.
Ok this house is so very charming & lovely… but but those dead animals would so have to go if it was my home lol! Great tour Sue 🙂
Next stop …the backyard and I’m sure the owners are taking their trophies with them somewhere. When I met my husband, his families cabin had a Moose head in the loft area that said husband was proud trophy owner of and it now hangs proudly in a specialty shop in Wisconsin.
Oh my! I saw lions, cougars, and bears. I do love the family room and the sun room a lot so that makes up for the critters. It would be nice to have a butlers pantry too. You also gotta love a house that comes with it’s own train, albeit kinda small and it doesn’t go very far.
great house sue but the lions, and tigers and bears oh my lol
You have a good eye for detail Carolann
Stunning home sans the taxidermy lol. I love that sunroom. Always wanted a house with one. Truly lovely!
