This house and property is amazing! And the price is equally as amazing! I love the exposed brickwork inside and the bathrooms. The bathroom sink in one bathroom is something I have never seen. At first I thought it was a claw foot tub! lol. Can we talk about the barn?! Would be a neat space to fix up and use for parties or get togethers. I love the trees planted on the property and the cornfields surrounding it all. Built in 1883. Located on 3.25 acres in Dekalb, Illinois. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,104 square feet. $284,500
