      I totally agree! At first I thought the wallpaper was a bit much but looked at it again and again and its really kind of cool, Id leave it just the way it is!

    This isn’t normally my style but there is something really appealing about this place. It’s warm and cozy without being too dark.

    A Prairie porch with a perfect plethora of panes of glass – 264 by my count. A lovely fireplace, bookcase/bench built-in. Marvelous!

    This looks like a wonderful house. I love all the built-ins. And even though yellow and gray aren’t my favorite color combination, I would enjoy having that bathroom. (I wonder if there’s a yellow sink, too?) I bet the floors are really nice under all that carpeting. And that windowed front porch looks pretty cool, though I’m not sure I’d spend a whole lot of time there.

    Those may be the longest radiators I’ve seen in a house. Those probably keep the place toasty.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think the kitchen would grow on me. I kind of like the wallpaper, but there’s an awful lot of it, so I might remove some. But I’d want to redo the cabinets and floor.

    I’d like to see the main staircase. Prairies often had impressive ones.

    When I saw the fireplace and recessed areas around it, I thought this house was a repeat because I’ve definitely seen that before–dark, dreary. But since I don’t remember the rest of the house at all, I guess it’s new. LOVE the enclosed porch and would like to make it charming with some little tables, lamps and an overstuffed chair or two. Having coffee out there in the early hours with the windows open would be idyllic.
    Unfortunately, the kitchen would have to GO!

      Do those porch windows even open? As they are now, I don’t see how you’d do it.

      • AvatarCeylaClaire says: 182 comments

        No, I guess they don’t. So I’d have to settle for having a screen door on and open. Rats! 🙂 Maybe I could have one or two windows re-worked. Hmmm….

    Definitely not on board with that wallpaper and that would be the first thing to go! Especially the green checked. Nice dark rich wood though. Love that enclosed porch too. Looks like it is in a nice quiet neighborhood and with brick streets still! Gives more character to the area. But IL? Still too cold for me!

    Although it’s personal taste, I think I’d remove all the porch windows and take it back to how it was originally intended – open and airy. Besides the thought of washing over two hundred little panes of glass is daunting. Although enclosed porches offer some air infiltration protection, they may also become a dumping ground for “stuff”. Agree – more pictures would be nice. Pana is a nice small town, near Decatur IL.

    Indeed, Pana is a nice town in central Illinois. A century ago it was a booming community and local business boosters put out a promotional publication in 1913 showing the best Pana had to offer: (Internet Archive-free read and download) https://archive.org/stream/panaillinoissome00reid/panaillinoissome00reid#page/n4/mode/1up A fair number of the houses featured in the promo booklet remain standing. It appears this house dates from near the time of the promotional publication. Prairie style houses are pretty common in Illinois from around this time with Chicago (Oak Park) being a center for the Midwestern style. I’m a bit surprised not to see more Arts & Crafts details in this house-it would not surprise me to learn it was built from a set of published plans. Nice house at the price it is being offered.
