      The foil paper in the powder room? SO COOL! I would change fixtures and vanity to go with it. What an awesome built in buffet!

        I agree on the foil wallpaper, I love it, but, I can’t help but think it looks like someone found a roll of Christmas wrap they really, really liked and decided to do the walls instead of gifts.
        I also love the curb appeal, of course, I’m a sucker for red brick.

    I forgot to send you any pictures I might that are worth displaying. I will check my camera tonight.

    That built-in buffet. Swoon.

    I toured this house in early November. It’s super cute. Nice sized rooms, lots of original features. The full bathroom has two doors, one from the hall and one from the largest bedroom. The decorative tiles around the bathtub have little animals on them, they are so cute. The roof is slate. The best thing is that it backs to an old cemetery and treed area so it’s super peaceful in the back. Also the house is on a dead end boulevard with lots of other nice homes from the 1920’s.

    What a sweetheart! Question for Sandra. How is the neighborhood, in regards to crime etc? This is perfect for me. I am out of state. Thank you in advance.

    • Sandra says: 293 comments

      I had checked out crime stats too. That’s a very low crime area near a university. The neighborhood all along that boulevard street looks very stable. The houses are all well maintained. It’s a dead end street so there is hardly any traffic. And that cemetery off the back was surreal. You can see a little bit of it in the second photo, and in the fourth photo you can see the low brick wall which divides the cemetery from the house’s back yard. I used to hang out in an old cemetery when I was a kid. 🙂 Peoria is a decent small city and larger Bloomington is less than 30 minutes away. I almost put in an offer on this house but ended up getting a different house closer to Chicago (which is where I currently live).

    This is my sort of house. Love that the breakfast nook is 1) present, and 2) that it has *three* windows! And love the main bath’s tilework! *And* Sandra says it has a slate roof, and that the main bath also connects directly to the master bedroom – cool! The street view also shows a pretty cul-de-sac street with a grassed island – nice! I used to live in an apt. complex situated between 3 cemeteries, and it was so nice & quiet. The only thing I would immediately change is the front storm door. Anything else could wait a bit, IMO. Well, except for that bath’s wallpaper. If it peeled off intact, I could ship it to Jennifer HT. ?

    That vintage (1970s?) foil wallpaper in the powder-room is swank!

    This home is a steal. Peoria is an old Illinois River town and has a lot of beautiful commercial and residential structures. It is Caterpillar Corp. based and the economy goes up and down with the company. As with any large town, there are good and bad but I love Peoria; visit there, eat there, shop there and have fun there.

    Thanks Sandra for the close up of the bath tiles.

    I love this house!! I live 2 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, though. I can’t imagine NOT living on the coast.

    Colonial Revival is one of my favorite architectural styles and this example is more charming than most. Like a dollhouse! And an excellent price point in a very nice area.

  15. MISTERMICELY says: 53 comments

    SWEET! I like the Catholic cemetery being there: quiet neighbours. I would want to put the standard 2 benches and narrow built in table back into the breakfast nook. There are 2 outlets (toaster). The kitchen could use a little colour too. This is a little gem!

    • Cathy F. says: 2330 comments

      Before buying my house, I lived in a garden apt. complex for 14 years. It was sooo nice & quiet. Why? Because it was surrounded by three cemeteries! One of them is a ‘garden cemetery’ with tons of various kinds of trees & 3 ponds – nice for walks. Sometimes I even went X-country skiiing there in winter.

      Totally agree about the breakfast nook. I have one & use it several times/day. And yep, I would also add some more color in the kitchen.

      This is such a charming house. (But I’d still change out the foil wallpaper! ?)

  16. Dmills says: 27 comments

    I’m curious if the breakfast nook might have had built in benches and table at some point. I’ve visited homes of friends built around the same time period that had breakfast nooks where benches and the table were built in.

    Tulsa, OK

    That was a very popular home offered in a few plan books! I uploaded a couple on flicker as well as some examples here in Tulsa, Okla.
    This one looks like a better match of the versions I have uploaded.

    I wonder what the winters are like in Peoria? Did undergrad in Chicago, and the winters were sometimes intense. But I love, love, love this house!
    Anyone know why the price is down?

  19. OdieKOdieK says: 148 comments

    Thank you to all who commented so informatively on the house and the surrounding area. I enjoyed the posts very much and the house is lovely. Originally I thought that perhaps this was one of those towns whose time has passed (because of the reasonable cost on the house) and thought, “No big deal. For those who successfully work from home and/or telecommute, this would be ideal”. Now that I know there is a good community that is just in a little dip, all the better! Illinois is not a good fit for me as I would have no people of my own there but this house sings for me.

    It is a cute house, tho I’m not a fan of wallpaper of any kind in a bathroom. Aside from that, the only thing I’d really do is remove the ivy from outside of the house.

    Also, Zillow shows the house been for sale for almost 4yrs…Someone is going to get a great house!

      Zillow does not usually have correct information. Not sure why but it’s not very reliable.

      On another subject… I would sure like to have laugh button on some of these comments. GREAT stuff all of you. I agree with just about every comment.

    It is a lovely house with a price to match. I love the wallpaper! I would change the parquet flooring.

  22. Dang the cemetery is super close

    1896 Farmhouse W/Swedish roots
    Rural, IL

    I love Peoria: Bradley University, Illinois River, the benefits of CAT’s philanthropy, restaurants, shopping and excellent medical facilities. It’s rural Midwest farm with city experiences. There are many new subdivisions and homes outside the city limits and often that’s where there’s the most/fastest home sales. Especially if it’s someone who will move with the company – they want a fast easy sell but it has new super schools (new tax base funded) for their family. It’s why in-town lovely homes may sit unsold and are offered so cheap. This little home is a gem.

    What great curb appeal. I love the brick exterior with what appears to be a clay tile roof as well! It looks as if the same tile is on the back dormer exterior walls as well. The bathroom with the tile and original tub is a keeper!

    Gorgeous, perfect to me home,but, wall or not, the cemetary’s just to close for comfort for me! I hate to sound like such a sissy la la & I admire those who don’t mind cemeteries being in the backyard, I just couldn’t!!
