Glen Ellyn Infant Welfare is pleased to present the fourth of our four featured homes for the 2015 Housewalk on Friday May 8th.
This historic home built in 1874 is situated in Glen Ellyn’s Main Street historical district. It is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places and was also featured on the cover of Victorian Homes magazine. The house has had relatively few owners, staying with the descendants of the Henry Finnamore family until 1989. Only two other owners have occupied this beautiful home. This Gothic Revival treasure combines Victorian charm with modern convenience. The meticulous and loving restoration work, twice recognized by restoration awards, has been respectful of the architectural style of this village landmark, and blends beautifully with a modern interior design aesthetic – which formed the perfect backdrop for the spectacular home wedding for the owners’ daughter.
Original details abound from the Gothic arched windows and gingerbread woodworking on the outside, to many of the interior features such as four paneled doors with porcelain knobs, a hand crank doorbell and numerous stained glass windows. Old and new marry beautifully on each floor, from the upper level master suite with fireplace and master bath to the vintage arches and contemporary artwork by the owner to the original double entrance door with etched glass and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows that grace the main level.
This is a not-to-be missed, one of a kind home representative of the heritage of Glen Ellyn
