This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of DuPage County history. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010 as an honorary designation, this is the original residence designed and built in 1847 by early Glen Ellyn settler George Baker, namesake of what is known as Baker Hill along Roosevelt Road. If you love well-built, historic homes rich with character, there's not a more significant nor unique home in all of Glen Ellyn that still remains in private hands. The home was designed as a Greek Revival farmhouse featuring a limestone exterior on a stone foundation with two-foot thick walls made up of six layers of brick with space in between for ventilation, making the house naturally cool in the heat of summer. Situated on an acre from the original homestead, you'll enjoy your own mini private park with gorgeous mature trees and dozens of perennial flowering plants along with vegetable and herb gardens. For nearly 40 years, current owners have enjoyed raising their family in the home and preserving its unique historical features. The home features 5 bedrooms, including a spacious primary bedroom with 9-foot ceilings on the 2nd floor and a nanny or in-law bedroom with full bath on the fully finished 3rd floor along with a large bonus room on that level, perfect for kids play area, teen hang-out or home office. There are 3 full bathrooms in the home, one on each of the three floors and a cozy living room with fireplace adjoining the kitchen with spacious eat-in dining area. Spacious detached 2-car garage and charming garden house shed for tool and lawn equipment storage. Wonderful location being walking distance to top-rated schools and short distance to Village Links Golf Course, College of DuPage McAninch Arts Center, and The Morton Arboretum's 1,700 acres of natural beauty. Easy access to shopping, restaurants, major expressways (I-88 and I-355) and just 5 minutes from charming downtown Glen Ellyn and Metra train station. Great opportunity to make this unique property your own to carry on the historic legacy.
