The Coates Cottage, featured on the 2012 Tour of Historical Galena Homes, was aptly named after former resident Ralph Coates by current owners post-restoration, and began as a one room structure dating back to the 1830's that has evolved over the years into an enchanting miner's cottage mixing touches of yesteryear with modern styling. Sited back off the street tucked in the trees, the property offers a very private setting with convenient travel to downtown Galena, and even features it's own off-street parking! Entry opens to large 3 season's room great for relaxing and entertaining that feeds to comfortable living room and cozy dining room with wood floors. The kitchen is to the rear in the original portion of the house, and features good cabinet space, Corian counters, room for eat-in table, and pantry. Upper level has been recently updated and includes charming bedroom with new carpet and craftsman style wall paper, sitting area/laundry area with newer Samsung washer/dryer, supplemental heating and cooling from Fujitsu mini-split heat pump, refinished pine paneling wall, and last but not least a state of the art bathroom. Bathroom features updated plumbing, electric radiant heat under tile, luxurious soaking tub with rotating main faucet and hand-held sprayer, and dramatic Grohe manufactured rain shower faucet on ceiling over tub, providing a true rain shower effect! Exterior features side pergola with tiled terrace over concrete that provides a great spot to enjoy the outdoors, a treed backdrop, beautiful landscaping, striking rock outcroppings, and an aluminum shed shielded to the rear for all your garden tools or extra storage. Updated composition shingles (2010). Some furniture can be negotiated via separate bill of sale. Truly a must see!
