Lovely Queen Anne House
This Queen Anne house grabs your attention with its wrap around porch, center stage turret and beautiful landscaping, but wait until you see inside. Be very silent while I shed a tear.
The listing calls this Queen Anne house a stately historic home. “Unbelievable location, unbelievable updates and unbelievable yard!” It was built in 1893 and has delightful updates like unique built-ins and a custom kitchen.
I know it’s rude to stare, but I can’t help myself. It must be heaven to live here or be in the neighborhood and see this house every day. It’s like a wedding cake with frosting.
QUEEN ANNE HOUSE:
Historical Society plaque proudly adorns the entrance. There is enough room on the wraparound porch for a party.
QUEEN ANNE HOUSE INTERIOR ENTRYWAY WITH GRAND STAIRCASE
In the corner sits an original coal fireplace.
The circle bench seating is the lower turret area…BIG sigh.
A kitchen with character. The cabinets are handmade and counters are concrete. The fridge is Sub Zero. Plus….
this French LaCornue gas range that is the piece de resistance at meal time.
A lot of fun lighting and colorful decor in this Queen Anne house. I’m ogling that windows.
It doesn’t say, but this bedroom must be at the top in the highest level of the turret.
THREE FULL AND ONE-HALF BATH
Yeah, if I could I would live here in a heartbeat.
I think this shower is in the upper turret bedroom area. There were not photos of all the baths.
PATIO AND LANDSCAPING
Private eating area. I like the fence and stone steps.
A house like this lit up at night is sheer romance and looks like a doll house. You can tell the owners have lovingly taken care of this home.
The house is in Glen Ellyn, Illinois a western suburb of Chicago. Glen Ellyn is a midwestern my hometown USA kind of place to live.
Priced at $949,900. Keller Williams has the listing with more photos and details about this lovely Queen Anne house style.
