Space and charm overlooking Galena! This 3 bed, 3 bath, historic home with a garage is being sold with most furnishings, ready for you to enjoy this Summer. The original home was built in 1854 and has been updated and added on to over the years. Yet the historic beauty remains in the original doors, banisters, wide plank wood floors, bay window, and refinished claw foot bathtubs. Near the front entry, a formal living room greets you with abundant windows and a built-in desk. Oversize pocket doors offer rich character and can separate the formal living room from the dining room which is complete with a bay window, butler's kitchen, pantry, and a working antique stove - great for entertaining. Continue through the game room to the cozy eat-in kitchen that was added in 2001 overlooking the private yard between the house and garage. The main level also features an enclosed porch/side entry with exposed brick and a full bath with refinished clawfoot tub. Upstairs features a spacious master bedroom with a private bath and an attached bonus room that would serve as a great office or nursery. Two more bedrooms and a full bath with laundry round out the second floor. The third bedroom can be accessed by the second bedroom or the private back staircase. Outside, enjoy your own "secret garden" with lush perennials and a detached 2-5 car garage with unfinished space above that was built in 2001. The garage was completed with 10-foot ceilings, in-floor radiant heat, cement board siding, a metal roof, and its own 100 amp electrical service. List of updates with years: 1983: The home was completely gutted and replaced all plumbing, electrical, and foam insulation. 2001: New eat-in kitchen, a ¾ bathroom/laundry area on the upper level, in-floor heat with separate thermostats, built garage. 2021: New dishwasher, new refrigerator, new furnishings, removed wallpaper, interior painted, updated lighting fixtures, refinished tubs. ---------- NEARBY ACTIVITIES: Downtown Galena: 19th-century downtown offering additional outdoor and indoor activities for tourists and locals alike. Kayak the Galena River, shop at over 100 downtown storefronts, take a trolley tour or attend one of the many events posted at visitgalena.org. Chestnut Mountain Resort: Downhill ski while overlooking the Mississippi river on the 19 ski trails and a 7-acre terrain park with rentals, lodging, and restaurants. Summertime activities include an alpine slide, zipline, mini-golf course, and Segway tours. ---------- PLEASE NOTE: Currently the City of Galena has a waiting list for vacation rental licenses and the Galena City Council has decided to limit the number of available licenses and has no current plans to increase that number in the near future. See the June 14th, 2021 city council meeting for more information.
