Welcome to the John Seaman House built in 1894 designed by Fidelke & Ellis. This majestic Victorian home commands your attention with it's impressive wrap around porch and grand entrance. The Oak Park Historical Society considers this home to be the most "intact" Victorian in the area. It has all the original features such as ornate custom millwork, stained glass windows, 11 foot ceilings & 6 fireplaces with unique hand-carved mantels. The eye catching woodwork includes White Oak, Mahogany, Curly Beach, Butternut & Georgia Pine. There is a large entry with a built-in curved bench which leads to the open grand hall. The living room/double parlor features a fire place and expansive windows which look out on to the front porch. Enter the library with built-in bookcases and a beautiful stained glass window. The large dining room has a hard carved shell motif sideboard flanked with columns and gorgeous windows. Each room is separated by original "pocket doors" that match the woodwork of each room. You will love the 1st floor office perfect for today's remote learning/working. The dazzling staircase is highlighted by a dramatic stained glass window and intricate carved spindles. The enormous master suite has a giant sitting room with a fireplace and a recently renovated bath. There are 3 additional bedrooms, additional full bath and a large office on the 2nd floor. The 3rd floor ballroom/recreation room is massive. There are 2 additional bedrooms, a newly renovated full bath & large office on this floor. The 1 bedroom coach house, which is currently rented month to month, has a recently renovated bathroom. There are 2 garages with parking for six cars. Please see a list of renovations under "additional information". This spacious, one-of-a-kind home is not to be missed. Great location - close to train, downtown Oak Park, restaurants & shops. Please note: 2020 taxes are $35, 165.00
