April 9, 2017Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Jacksonville, Illinois
Hey folks! Sorry this one is a bit late today, but better late than never! Yesterday was just one of those days where everything goes wrong and I didn’t have time to get the post ready. Anyhoo, thanks goes out to Lisa W. for sending the link for this STUNNING one owner mid-century time capsule. This split-level is enormous, and so affordable that I’m ready to move to Illinois. Ruth and I were just dying over this one. You will not be disappointed, so here we go!
This home is located at 6 Book Ln, Jacksonville, Illinois on a large lush lot. It is a 6 bedroom, 5 bath, 4,903 square foot home built in 1959 that is being offered at $249,900. The listing is courtesy of Dianne Steinberg at Steve Hills Realtors. For more information and additional photos you can check out the listing here. From the listing:
This architecturally pure mid-century home is a rare find in this traditional mid-west. Notable for many reasons, from architect, to builder, to the one & only owner. These owners attention to detail does not go unnoticed. The five bathrooms (for instance) look as though they were never used – (sparkling clean) & there were children raised here. The soaring ceilings, the fireplaces, hardwoods, signature style staircase, screened porch, double lot the home sits on – remarkable! Just another of J’villes hidden treasures and ready to be yours! Home sits on 2 lots, 2nd lot size is 130×149.

This is definitely one of my favorite homes because it is such a mind-blowing time capsule. I wish I could get a home like this in Nashville for that price!! The gorgeous wood, soaring ceilings, fireplaces, yellow metal cabinets, light fixtures, original bathrooms in sherbet colors…. ahhhh!! 😍😍😍 Do y’all love it as much as we do?
