Description

Indulge in the epitome of unique living with an absolute must-see property boasting incomparable views! The unique La Fox Schoolhouse Bell Tower is one of the most recognized homes in Illinois, and for good reason. This amazing 2-story residence, with both residential and commercial zoning, has been¬†updated with the latest internet capabilities, 200 AMP electrical, septic (2021), buried cable lines, and central HVAC. The classic Italianate 1871 architecture features an accessible Campanile (the bell works!), massive 11-foot ceilings, reglazed windows/storms, cedar shake roof (2005), cedar siding, and historical-inspired modern lighting. Freshly painted interiors, impressive crown molding, craftsman corbels, and gleaming hardwood floors are just a few more of the 2005 rehabbed improvements. This lovingly maintained, personally landscaped (raised bed gardens), and highly unique residence boasts a picture-lined foyer that opens to a large family/dining/office area, tasteful kitchen, and tranquil powder bath on the main level. Customized closets, library foyer, and a full bath (nickel-plated clawfoot tub/shower with custom vanities) are located on the 2nd level. The spacious master suite, which used to be the school’s gym and lunchroom, is currently partitioned into 2 bedrooms and an on-suite bonus area. A commercial-grade steel porch and doorway exit to the plush 1-acre lot, Chicago brick-lined patio, and large backyard. This property includes a 1-car garage and extra-long driveway for multiple vehicles. Subdivide the side yard or use for a build-out opportunity. The basement has an interior staircase plus outdoor door access to the long driveway and side yard. Although unfinished, the basement has an installed drain tile system, owned water softener, 50-gallon water heater, and frosted block glass windows. The cemented and stone foundation is office secure and home to the owner’s art studio and home internet business. Located in the highly-rated Geneva School District, this home is within walking distance to the Metra (about an hour to Chicago by train) and a short drive to Geneva Commons and St. Charles, Illinois neighborhoods. It is also close to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital and situated in Kane County, Illinois on the historic strip. Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history and unique living!¬†
