    Description

    The next chapter of your story begins at 809 Douglas Ave. Located on a quiet tree lined street in Elgin's most sought after "Gold Coast" neighborhood, this lovely white farmhouse invites you to walk through and understand how truly special it is. Step into the airlock foyer and enter the gallery space with its grand staircase and beautiful woodwork and get ready to feel right at home! Both the living and dining rooms--each with their own wood burning fireplaces--are bathed in light throughout the day and the adjacent kitchen with high end appliances is the perfect space to gather. The main level is completed with a private den, huge screened porch, powder room and laundry room. All four bedrooms are on the 2nd floor and the master suite, featuring triple closets and a thoughtfully designed bath, is the perfect place to unwind after a long day. There is a walk in closet that could be a small office as well. A 3rd story walk-up attic offers room for expansion. The full basement is where you'll find a giant rec room, workroom and several storage areas. The porches and patio are great for entertaining or just taking in nature and the yard is a perfect space for active kids. The oversized 2 car garage offers additional storage in the floored attic. The yard is simply gorgeous - a gardener's delight! Lush green grass and towering trees will greet you once spring is underway and the perennial flowers (for every season) are already beginning to pop! This home offers the perfect blend of modern conveniences and old world charm and history! New roof on house and garage (2018)
