Beautiful 5 acres on Stagecoach Trail and Guilford Road just outside of picturesque Galena, IL. This includes a 10 ft. deep spring fed stocked pond in a quiet rural setting as well. This exquisite stone home, originally built in 1846 with only the original 4 walls and fireplace remaining, was the proud recipient of the 2012 Jo Mead Historic Preservation Award. The home was completely restored in 2007 to complete this amazing property. The kitchen features custom white oak cabinetry with granite counters, an apron sink and Whirlpool Gold appliances including an induction cook top, microwave with convection oven and a conventional/convection oven. The dining room houses the original stone fireplace that has an outside air intake for efficiency. The living room has a beamed cathedral ceiling, built-in wet bar with refrigerator and patio door that leads to the outside patio from which to enjoy the pond. There are exposed stone walls, 20” deep window sills covered with granite and travertine, white oak hardwood, travertine and tile flooring and crown molding throughout to complete the main level. The upper level has 2 bedrooms, including a master bedroom with white oak flooring and a second bedroom with red elm flooring. There is a full bath with tile walk-in shower and the laundry facilities as well. There are ceiling fans throughout both levels plus 2 energy efficient geothermal units that both heat and cool the home. An attached heated oversized 2 stall garage plus a 40 ft. by 24 ft. shed that could be used to house horses etc. complete this wonderful rural property.
