503 S Lafayette St, Newton, IL 62448 $35,000
Fixer Upper Queen Anne
This c.1900 Queen Anne cottage is a fixer upper with so many original elements to enjoy. The round porch and catty-cornered front door with colonnade entrance are unique features. Hardwood floors, stunning mantel, pocket doors, stained glass and floor-to-ceiling built-in are additional, wonderful details.
When this house was built, Lafayette Street homes were primarily owned by civil servants and other white collar workers. Although I could not decipher the original owners of 503 S. Lafayette, Norman Benefiel, an Illinois state representative, grew up a few houses down from our featured home.
