If you love America Foursquares as I do, then you’re going to to say, “Wow!” to this one! This circa 1911 beauty is located in the historic district of Cairo, IL, (pronounced Care-O) a small town situated at the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. The home is all brick with a tile roof, bay windows, a screened-in porch and a fabulous brick garage. Tall ceilings, hardwood floors, arched doorways and a lovely sunroom are just a few of this gem’s outstanding features. Can you believe that oak staircase? With its unique configuration, large Palladian window and window seat, it has to be the most standout staircase I’ve seen so far in a house under $50,000. A brick fireplace on the first floor, a fireplace in the bedroom, a wonderful rear portico and a lovely yard add to #2601 Washington Street’s appeal.
In a most understated way, here’s what the realtor has to say, “All brick 100 year old home with tile roof located in the historical district of Cairo. Interior features stainless steel countertops in the kitchen, beautiful oak stair case, stained glass window, large rooms throughout, detached two car garage with storage.”
