Historic House Listings

Off market. Fixer upper alert! Circa 1885 in Illinois. $45,000

January 5, 2020

This fixer upper definitely needs some work. Get rid of the drop ceiling and the paneling for starters. This home was built in 1885. It is located on .26 acres in Carrollton, Illinois. The kitchen almost looks like the wrong house. Some of the windows look original! There are hardwood floors and I bet they are under the carpeting as well. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 1,762 square feet. $45,000

From the Zillow listing:


Amazing historic home located in a great small town. Many updates already made to the main level of this home. Main level eat-in kitchen with a large walk-in pantry. Main floor family and living rooms with original hardwood floors. Dining room has built in cabinets. Three large bedrooms upstairs with a roughed-in full bathroom. Large mud/laundry room coming into house through the back door and back porch. This would make a great family home in a great community.
