    Be sure to check out the street view, some cool homes in this neighborhood.

    Wow, you’re right about the neighborhood. I would love to see more of that brick one across the street. Lot’s of nice detailing in this one but I would have to try to retro-date that kitchen and definitely move that A/C unit down to the ground where it belongs. Lots of potential though and the price would allow most to pursue some renovations I would expect.

    Love the house style! Look very much like one we now live in which has same front but with bay window on 1st floor on right side instead of 2 single window. Also ours has single front door with 1 window on porch facing street & 1 window to right wall of front door. Ours also has curved/spiral staircase to the left of front door entrance hallway.This house has more detail around windows/doors than ours which I love! The renovations that have been done to this house is worth the price!

    Here’s the wiki for the water tower in the next block: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Havana_Water_Tower

    A little odd that there is a double bed on the other side of the French doors where there is a lounging area. I like all the angels, though.

    so cute — and great for the $$$.
    I am truly looking to buy, but I just have to find something that hasn’t had money spent on remodeling. I simply do not share taste with 99% of other people — especially bathrooms and kitchens, and certainly don’t want to spend money to redo anything that is new or new-ish.

    A blend here of original and updated details. The house is from the Italianate family based on the full and segmented arched windows-mainstays of the Italianate style, The winding walnut staircase is also textbook Italianate with a classic Italianate newel post and balusters. Usually such Italianate houses also featured corbels/brackets under the eaves but they are absent here. Perhaps there were some but they were removed in the past. The back part of the house looks newer but not unusual for a house that has been in use since the 1870’s. Seems reasonably priced for the features offered. As for Havana, IL, I’ll have to look that one up-I doubt if anything Cuban was involved in the town’s founding, but you never know. There are some interesting period homes in this neighborhood as others have noted based on an informal streetview survey.

    I would have loved to see a better photo of the staircase.
