This house is gorgeous!

106 Harrison Ave,Charleston, IL 61920


5 beds 3 baths 3,420 sqft

This magnificent two-story Italianate Style home is historically referred to as "The Old Brick". This unique five bedroom, three bath home sits on a nearly two acre beautifully manicured lot. Highlights include cherry wood floors and elegant Lincrusta Wainscoting from Great Britain in the foyer, modern kitchen with original brick walls and custom cabinetry, formal living room with wood burning fireplace featuring a cast iron mantel, library with handcrafted floor to ceiling bookcases, six foot windows with original shutters. The outer walls were built three bricks thick (an outer layer of two bricks separated from the inner layer by an air space for unbeatable insulative properties). The eleven foot ceilings keep the home cool in the summer. This property also has an unfinished basement and a 2.5 car detached garage. The Steep, gabled roof sheds snow easily, was replaced in 2005, and is in excellent condition. The exterior including eaves was repainted in 2014. The landscaping has an abundance of flowers, shrubs and mature trees. The back yard is surrounded by a double-gated polyvinyl fence. The yard also features two large stone patio areas and a wooden deck. A pergola covers the hot tub area. Ask for a copy of the home's history!
