November 7, 2022

The staircase in this house is beautiful!! The home was built in 1887. It is located in Decatur, Illinois. The home features a wrap around front porch, side upper porch, some original hardwood floors, grand sweeping staircase, baseboards and bay windows. I am not a fan of all the different types of flooring. Hopefully the original is hiding underneath. There is a detached garage on the property. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms and 3,444 square feet. $64,500!
