Imagine living on Benton Park on a peaceful cul de sac of only ten houses overlooking the park and you are at 3144 Illinois. Minutes from downtown, neighboring Soulard, Lafayette Square and Tower Grove, as well as all major highways. Built in 1896, this handsome home features spacious, well-proportioned rooms with wonderful natural light from tall, arched windows. Remarkably, many of the original architectural details are intact, such as 6 operable pocket doors, stick & ball fretwork in the living room, two decorative fireplace mantels, and faux wood grain paint on second floor woodwork. The ceilings on the first and second floors are over 11 feet, many with tall doors with transoms. The floor plan adapts comfortably from 3 to 5 bedrooms, depending on family room and private office usage. Most rooms have Ethernet outlets. Recent improvements include painting throughout and new exterior concrete steps. Benton Park is a sought-after urban, yet quiet, vibrant neighborhood.
