Welcome to the historic Henry L. Boies home which was once situated inside the Historic District at 707 Somonauk Street. In 1962 the 5/6-bedroom home was moved to the south of Sycamore. The Italianate style of home is one of the most enduring architectural styles from rowhouses to country estates, National Trust for Historic Preservation. The owners have devotedly kept much of the craftmanship, real wood millwork and detailing to the period of the home.
Relax on the large 10 x 40 foot open front porch of the 1862 home. The deck flooring is painted wood while the ceiling is beadboard. The original siding on the front porch is cedar clapboard. Enter the foyer where you will be graced with beautiful high ceilings, oversized double doors, large entryways and artistry woodwork in the living room, parlor, and dining room. Off the dining room is the optional 6th bedroom, which was once a maid’s quarters. The kitchen has white shutter-style cabinets with some updated appliances. The main floor bath was renovated in 2021.
Moving upward into the large hallway you will discover five bedrooms and a full bath. The primary bedroom has maple hardwood flooring. There is a set of tandem bedrooms. Three bedrooms have painted pine flooring while one has new vinyl flooring. The home was converted into a 2 unit, but the recent owners reverted to a single-family home. Therefore, 1 bedroom was designed as a kitchen and still has useful counter and cabinet space. This room can still be a bedroom, an office with counter workspace, etc. The large bedroom windows allow ample natural lighting. Off one bedroom is a stairway to the full walk-in attic.
The open basement space has a washer and dryer area and room for storage. The exterior of the home has vinyl siding, a porch repair in 2015, 50-year roof and siding in 2020, Leaf Filter on north side and gutter filters on back side in 2020. The new garage was constructed in 2022. The home has 2 water heaters, 2 electrical boxes and 2 furnaces. In the past 5 years, a washer, dryer, stove, and refrigerator were purchased. Warranties for siding and shingles. The home is sold As Is. Jill Doherty, email@example.com
