    Wow! This is a result of going back over Illinois to check out listings I may have missed. How’d I ever miss seeing this?! It’s amazing and a job well done by the owners.

    I love the old-fashioned “thunder box” toilet and I’m always a fan of unpainted wood.

    Wow. Love this place too!

    Swoon! I’m in love … wish it had an elevator for this senior’s knees.

    I am STUNNED by this house–and even more so by the price! I assumed it was in a high tax area, but not the case. From what I’ve read, they’re not even sure when it was built. A house this spectacular in a small town *has* to have some kind of history…why can’t I find it??

    Is it me or is it strange to have no trim between the wall and ceiling, not even a thin picture rail?

    This house is FABULOUS! It caught my breathe with most pictures and the furnishing are so gorgeous as well.

    This house was built for Frank Atlass (1868-1938), a Polish immigrant who was the largest poultry dealer in the area. The house is a landmark in the history of radio, as Frank’s sons Les and Ralph began broadcasting out of the basement there in 1911. They later transferred their station to Chicago, where WBBM became one of the most successful stations in the country.

    I can’t think how this price is even possible! Even if the restorers answered an ad that read “Free To A Good Home,” how could they make a profit on this gorgeous space? The cost per sq. ft. cannot reflect the value. What am I missing?

      I think that they easily have the asking price in the cost of the restoration. I noticed from another website they started out at 500K for an asking price. And it has not sold.It always comes down to location and the demand for that area. Which means in some places you can buy a mansion like this for the same money you would get a run down cottage elsewhere. You have to always consider what the market will support before you undertake a restoration. Unless you plan on being there forever. But peoples plans do unexpectedly change. and sometimes that leads to a harsh reality of what the market really is where they are. All that said i love this place and the owner’s have done a fabulous job. That dining room is incredible and pretty much everything else.

    In fairness to the sellers, this house came back on the market a couple of years ago with a $600K asking price. Sadly, it would not surprise me to learn the current price is less than the costs of restoring this mansion level home. It helps when a period mansion sits in a district of similar mansions but this house is pretty much a stand alone example. It is also obviously architect designed and nicely combines late Queen Anne and very pronounced Dutch Colonial details on the exterior while the interior is decidedly Queen Anne with exquisite millwork. It’s interesting though to note some early Arts & Crafts designs on the dining room walls. Lincoln, in the central part of Illinois, has an interesting collection of late 19th and early 20th century homes. Few are this grand, however. In a place like Seattle or Portland, OR, this house would probably be priced at well over a million.

    AND Lincoln IL is a nice mid sized town. Sure didn’t see that level of beauty on the interior coming. Wow!

    This is an absolutely stunning house. The woodwork and floors are fabulous and how lovely is that dining room??? I did find it interesting that many of the rooms didn’t have some type of crown moulding. For the price and the condition, I can’t believe this place hasn’t sold unless the neighborhood is a real tip. I didn’t do a Google drive by, though. Wish I lived in IL. 🙂

    Simply Gorgeous! Especially love the kitchen and dining room. The attic looks like a ballroom. I wouldn’t change a thing.
