Here is an excellent Queen Anne/Farmhouse style home located in the Elgin Historic District. This block of Porter Street is the best in the area! Upstairs you'll find four bedrooms, and on the first floor, a large, open floorplan with lots of natural light streaming in through the abundance of windows. Excellent original details are found everywhere, including hardwood floors, period millwork, built-ins, decorative glass, and a brick fireplace with a bookcase surround. The baths and kitchen have been tastefully updated. Enjoy the sun in the heated Florida room, or fresh air on the spacious screened-in porch in the back. The exterior has been recently painted in historic colors that highlight decorative details, which, until recently were hidden by aluminum siding. The roof was redone a year ago. The kitchen appliances and water heater are 2-5 years old. This house is going to make someone or some family very happy!
