About This 1874 Italianate For Sale In Oregon Illinois
Imagine waking up every day in your own Italianate style Victorian mansion on your personal 2+ acre estate! The second you arrive through the brick columns on each side of the horseshoe drive you’ll feel this elevated beauty calling you with its striking exterior, bold red door, ornate woodwork, and towering third floor cupola lookout. Not to mention its gorgeous interior features including 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 7 fireplaces, grand foyer entrance, formal dining room, extra-large carriage house, full basement, and full attic.
You’ll be hard pressed not to fall instantly in love. Delight in the ambiance of the majestic pines and myriad of birds singing as you enjoy morning coffees on your secluded screened porch with your overhead fans gently twirling. Or revel in evening cocktail parties with friends and family while music plays just outside your parlor doors on your expansive 74′ wood railed veranda. Be the new owner of the historic 400 Mix Street which is officially recorded in the National Register of Historic Places as Pinehill.
The Pinehill mansion and carriage house were built in 1874 by William Judd Mix, and part of its long rich history includes being operated as The Pinehill Inn. Love this home as your private treasure!
