From the Zillow listing:


Beautiful brick and stone home built in 1908/09 for an exec. at the Beich Candy Company. A hint as to the architect of the building is the record of a 1910 remodel by A.T. Simmons, an associate of Arthur Moratz, who built many dignified residences in Bloomington. Flooring in the home resembles that of others known to be built with wood from the Moratz planing mills. Fireplace hardware along and interior architecture echo the Spanish look of the decor of the front porch, which give this home an exotic appeal. This magnificent home boasts original refinished woodwork, beautiful stained glass, working pocket doors, and a Murphy-In A Door. The finished 3rd story has a family room and bedroom. Partially finished basement with large family room, Craft/rec room, utility room, workshop area, and storage throughout. Full kitchen/bath on BOTH main and 2nd floor. Zoned B1, close to schools, shopping, trail, and eateries. Have your business on the main level and live in or lease the upstairs, or enjoy all 4 floors for your own personal residence! The home is currently listed with RE/MAX Rising, 501 S Towanda Barnes, Suite 2, Bloomington, IL 61705.
