Description

If you have always dreamed of retiring to a log cabin in the North woods, now is your opportunity! Nothing else like this in the Chicago area! This genuine, original, 1920s log cabin is a magical place! Boasting true log construction both inside and out, the original logs have been maintained and preserved for a century! Step through the sprawling front screened porch into the foyer, and the grand staircase will take your breath away. It's like walking into history! The 2 story atrium vaults all the way up to the intricate log roof. The main floor offers an original charming country kitchen, a formal dining room, a huge, beautiful, river rock fireplace, and a full bedroom with bath. Upstairs, --more bedrooms, another bath, and a mezzanine sitting area overlooking the first floor. Garage to the rear is also a log structure. Yard has been landscaped with many trees and stone pathways. This cabin has dual zoning in place, so it can be a private residence, a income-producing business, or both. Imagine living out your fantasy of going back in time, living here. Or, imagine this cabin as a truly unique airbnb! Or as an antique store! As a wedding photography studio! As a quilting or knitting shop/studio or a really hip architect's office! The possibilities are endless... and the exciting potential is all up to you! Make an appointment to see this wonderful cabin, today!
